Beijing Roast Duck 北京烤鸭
There are two things that you must do when visiting Beijing: One is to enjoy the roast duck and the other is to take a stroll on the Great Wall. There is no set order in which to do these things but a walk on the Wall is sure to whet your appetite for the duck! There is nothing quite like a perfectly roasted duck with bronzed crispy skin and tender succulent meat. There are literally dozens of restaurants that serve this famous dish, but perhaps the best known are Quanjude and Bianyifang. Quanjude roasts their ducks over burning wood while Bianyifang roasts its ducks using radiant heat from the oven walls. It is sliced into about 120 pieces and served with plum sauce, fresh spring onions and pancakes.

Beijing Home Style 家常菜
The majority of Chinese restaurants in Beijing feature what is known as 'home style dishes' (Jia Chang Cai), which are basically the most common types of food that any self-respecting Chinese can make at home. These dishes are usually a combination of the spicy Sichuan style and the more hearty Shandong style.

Beijing Folk Food
Beijing folk food mainly is the Beijing Snack. These dishes emanate from many different cuisines, but the Chinese Muslim influence is the most apparent. There are probably 200 varieties of snacks in Beijing including Quick-Fried Tripe (Bao Du); Pot-stewed Tripe (Luzhu); Bean Soup (Dou Zhi) and Sweet Cake (Tang Huo Shao).

Sichuan Spicy Food

Sichuan Cuisine, also known as Chuan cai, tastes hot and spicy from the use of hot peppers and strong seasonings. Boiled Fish and Stir-fried Bean Curd in Hot Sauce are the most famous dishes from Sichuan. Chuan cai is also a well liked cuisine in China and the restaurants dealing with Sichuan Cuisine are everywhere to be seen. True Sichuan style restaurants have a special type of tea called Eight Treasures Tea. This tea is poured from a kettle with a yard-long spout, which the server wields skillfully.

Zhejiang Cuisine, also known as Zhe Cai, is an important part in Chinese Cuisine. It is composed by the dishes in Hangzhou, Ningbo and Shaoxing, and has a history over 2,000 years. Zhejiang Cuisine is characterized by delicious, light, crisp and elegant flavor. It is not greasy and gets a high reputation for the ladies who are keeping on a diet. Zhejiang Province is regarded as the homeland of fish and rice. So seafood and fish are an important part of it.

Cantonese Food
A huge chunk of Chinese culture is devoted to food and drink. There are hundreds of different dishes, and each region has its own distinctive flavor. All of the really funky dishes you hear about like live monkey brains and raw rat babies are Guangdong (Cantonese) style dishes (yue cai). However, there are lots of excellent, non-scary Guangdong dishes - the seafood being especially tasty. The cost of tasting Cantonese Cuisine is a little high.

Imperial official cuisine
Imperial official cuisine is particular to Beijing. In the past, Beijing officials were all very picky about what type of food they ate. The most famous type of Official food is Tan Family Food, available in the Beijing Hotel. This is the preferred food of the Qing Dynasty (1644 -1911) official Tan Zongling, and was later introduced into restaurants. Another type of food is described in the classic novel, Dream of Red Mansions. The author, Cao Xueqin, described a number of dishes in the book and now there are several restaurants that serve this style of dish.
