The original Chongqing delicacy was preserved in Qixinggang

Let's go back to basics today and find some original cuisine of CQ, shall we?(wink~ wink~)

 The rapid development of Chongqing created many new bustling downtown areas. But one place still retains the memory of old Chongqing city: the Qixinggang in Yuzhong District (渝中區七星崗). The delicacy in Qixinggang is like the pristine Tongyuan Gate (通遠門), which are the concentrations of Chongqing historical culture.

Chunyang Old Tavern


This is a dozen-year-old shop characterized by plum, grape and blueberry wines. It's a comfortable place to enjoy a chat, play a finger-guessing game and drink wine with your good old friends. The personalities of candidness and straightforwardness of Chongqing people will be revealed here.


Address: Chunyang Cave in Guanyin Rock, Zhongshan 1st Road of Yuzhong District


Jintang Claypot Rice

This is the kind of small shop of old streets. Some ingredients of Claypot Rice have changed based on  Chongqing people's preferences, but it still contains excellent taste. As the picture shows, there is a layer of rice crust at the bottom of the pot, which is really crispy and crunchy. The Claypot Rice with fish flavored pork slices 魚香肉絲煲 is highly recommended. It tastes authentic and goes great with rice.

Jintang Steamed Soup Dumplings


Various kinds of steamed stuffed buns are available in this shop while the Steamed Soup Dumpling is the best-known. There are six buns in each steamer tray. Each contains thin skin, sufficient stuffing and fresh soup. If you have steamed stuffed bun with the side dish -- the soup of beancurd skin and duck blood, it will taste even better. Those who love Steamed Soup Dumplings — don't miss it.

Old Lady's Noodle Shop


The noodle in this shop is very spicy and delicious as well as high quantity, which has won the representative title of the same industry. It often remains open until late in the evening, so it is convenient for people who are on night shift or love a midnight snack. They are able to have a bowl of hot noodle even at midnight.

Zuianyi Teppanyaki


Although lesser-known, it's a really good shop with  large variety and quantity of  fresh vegetables. There are also inexpensive bullfrogs which are extremely tasty. The shopkeeper prepared many free snacks for customers; this kind of customer-oriented service makes us feel welcomed.
