Yangshuo Eating

Yangshuo is the place where you can enjoy delicious traditional food, characteristic for this part of China. Cuisine of whole region is rich and diverse, but there are some dishes that are typical of this part of China and they should not be skipped. Those are beer fish (啤酒鱼; Pia Yu), which is the most famous dish from Yangshuo at the same time, stuffed Li River snails (田螺娘 天落两; Tianluo Niang), taro with pork (Lipu Kourou) and Li River shrimps. If you want to try a true traditional snack, do not miss tofu filled with pork or Guilin rice noodles. Besides Chinese food, in Yangshuo you can enjoy Western food in many restaurants and cafes.

Generally, food in Yangshuo is somewhat more expensive, compared to the rest of China, which is to be expected given that this is a popular tourist destination. Open stalls can offer cheaper meals, although they are still in a way costly for the Chinese standard.

Great variety of cheap food can be found in Night Market, at northern end of West Street. If you are after exotic food this is the place to be, because there you can eat rats, frogs, dogs, and frogs.
