Yantai Food

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/8

Yantai is widely considered as the birthplace of Lu Cuisine (i.e., one of the eight famous regional cooking schools of China, the other seven being the Cantonese, the Chuan, the Hui, the Mei, the Su,, the Xiang and the Zhe schools of cuisine). Traditional Lu dishes figure prominently in the restaurants of Yantai, though Lu Cuisine is far from being the only type of cuisine available in Yantai, or even the major cuisine, for that matter. In fact, in recent years, seafood dishes have outstripped Lu Cuisine in popularity among both the local inhabitants of Yantai and the city's growing flocks of tourists, which also explains the explosion in seafood restaurants around the city.

Yantai Featured Food:
