Good news for foodies

There is a new piece of good news for the foodies in Sichuan and Chongqing! Recently, the whole line of Chengdu – Chongqing High-speed Rail has started to be tested. It is reported that the whole line will be open to traffic next month and it only takes one hour and 26 minutes, twice as fast as Chengdu – Chongqing CRH trains. Is everyone ready? For foodies, it is just a distance of one hour and 26 minutes from Chongqing hot pot to Chengdu Maocai (mixed vegetables boiled in spicy soup).
Chongqing – Chengdu, the guide for living in the two cities newly released
Breakfast
Chongqing-ers' breakfast is quite simple, "A bowl of hot noodles bottomed with green vegetable leaves."
Chengdu-ers prefer fresh foods such as porridge, bun, soybean milk and fried bread stick. The mellow and full buns also represent Chengdu-ers’ relatively gentle character.
Hot pot
Chongqing-ers' hot pot is a pot with foods in boiling chili oil with hot and spicy delicious taste where people around it eat cattle stomach and duck intestines and drink Shancheng (Chongqing) beer.
Chengdu-ers' hot pot is the fashionable Yuanyang (mandarin duck) hot pot with diversified flavours, and it attaches importance to nutrition and health.
Chunchuan (meat and vegetables in bunches on bamboo sticks)
Chongqing-ers' Chuanchuan, just like their hot pot, is hot and spicy and seeks jollification.
Chengdu-ers' Chuanchuan is like Bo Bo (pot) Chicken and seeks comfort and quietness.
Barbeque
Chongqing-ers' nightlife starts from barbeque, but they would not feel satisfied without pork brain and duck intestines.
Chengdu-ers love to have barbeque. According to the survey, roasted eggplant is the most popular among roasted foods and even can completely defeat roasted chicken wings.
Rice noodles
Chongqing Hot and Sour Rice Noodles always has the reputation of the "No. 1 rice noodles in the world" with chewy hot and spicy noodles that are delicious and appetizing. By the way, don't forget to tell the seller to add more pepper and vinegar.
However, in Chengdu, what ranks on top is not the hot and sour rice noodles, but the Rice Noodles with Pig Intestines. Each dish of authentic Noodles with Pig Intestines adopts sweet potato noodles that do not boil out easily and are crystal clear. It will be served in the bone soup boiled with vinegar in it.
After seeing these, you suddenly find that Chongqing and Chengdu are actually quite near to each other. After eating a bowl of noodles in Chongqing in the morning, one can go to Chengdu for shopping and eating, and then come back by high-speed rail in the afternoon to have a hot pot meal, which is absolutely a wonderful experience.
