There is a saying that Guangdong (of course including Shenzhen) is a paradise of cate. Foods in Shenzhen almost include all flavors in China: super spicy dishes, sweet and delicate yummy dishes, fresh fish pulled right from the ocean; animals flying in the sky, running on the earth and swimming in the water can be cooked into delicious dishes. No wonder the saying that "to not eat local food, is a great disservice to yourself" is so popular in Shenzhen. As a migrant city, Shenzhen represents all regional cuisines of China: Sichuan Cuisine, Cantonese cuisine, Shandong Cuisine, Anhui cuisine and so on. In a word, in Shenzhen, you will never fail to find a cuisine that arouses your appetite and curiosity.
