Eating in Zhengzhou
Famous Local Food
Yu Cuisine attaches great importance to soup preparing. In the Yu Cuisine, soup is classified into appetizer soup, white soup and clear soup. The materials for cooking soup must be 'washed twice, put into the pot twice, and the scum be skimmed off twice'. When high-grade clear soup is needed, extra materials will be added so as to reach the effects that when it is clear, the bottom should be seen, the taste must be refreshing; when thick, white nutrients should float on the surface and be able to stick to the lips when enjoyed.
The historical dishes like 'Quick-fried Yellow River Carp in Sweet and Sour Sauce Covered with Baked Noodles', 'Stir-fried Three Not Sticky', 'Skin and Shreds with Osmanthus Flowers' and 'Carp in Sweet and Sour Sauce' are still well known far and wide and highly favored by people both at home and abroad.
