Baisui (longevity) Chicken

Last updated by chinatravel at 2016/12/5

It used to be called the “Pinyuan Chicken” or the “First Scholar’s Chicken”. Wang xiye, the owner and founder of the featured roast chicken established the fame in 1985 and named it “Longevity Chicken”, with the meaning of “living a long life after eating the chicken”. The chicken is roasted on fire until its skin is crisp and its bone is soft. The chicken flesh is delicate and tender, with its aroma flowing to every corner of the room. By now, the restaurant has opened 5 multiple stores and its chicken can be done in more than ten methods, of which hot pot chicken is the most delicious. Diners sometimes have to book the seat three to four hours in advance to get a decent seat.
