Wuhan Restaurants

The city of Wuhan offers the more spicy side of Chinese cuisine with such mouth-watering dishes as raw pig's ear, water buffalo intestine, fried eel and the infamous chicken feet. Most of these dishes are served in tongue-scorching sauces that will leave you thirsting for water. The wealth of food available in Wuhan reflects the city's location between Shanghai and Chongqing. Many restaurants serve a good mix of eastern Sichuan cuisine and oily, braised dishes. Wuhan style cuisine focuses on preparation, cooking time and the appearance of dishes. Fish and shellfish are especially good. Snacks such as buns and omelets are also popular here.

Steamed Wuchang Fish – Wuhan RestaurantsSteamed Wuchang Fish
Steamed Wuchang fish is one of the most famous dishes in Wuhan. This fresh water fish is soft and rich when prepared correctly. The best way to prepare the fish is to steam it together with Chinese ham, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, and chicken soup.

Fried Bean Curd Sheets
Fried bean curd sheets stuffed with three delicacies are a classic Wuhan breakfast. Bean curd (or tofu) is stuffed with pork, egg and shrimp. Good sheets are fairly thin and made with pure water at a low temperature which makes them crispy outside and soft inside.

Hot-dry Noodles
Hot-dry noodles are an essential part of the Wuhan diet, eaten by almost everyone for breakfast. Hot-dry noodles are made by cooking fresh noodles with sesame oil in boiling water. When the noodles have been cooked and cooled, they become pliable. The noodles are then placed in boiling water again to be reheated and the process is repeated. After seasonings are added, including spring onions and sauce, the hot-dry noodles are ready to be served.
