Food and Dining in Hangzhou

Fresh food is available for sale everywhere in Hangzhou and I admire much of it as I walk by on all my adventures in the city.

Fresh fruit shops

Butcher shop

 Duck shop (all parts available at the counter)

Roasted yams

I eat simply in Hangzhou, a breakfast of steamed buns, steamed vegetables, and congee (Chinese rice porridge, often mixed with chicken, beef, or fish and garnished with scallions, chilies, shallots, and other goodies).

For lunch, often a sandwich from the local convenience store (at 5.8RMB, the sandwich costs me $0.90 USD).

And, for dinner, something simple with or without rice, for example, rotisserie duck, served the same way that lamb is served on a rotisserie in Europe.  What a great deal at 7 RMB for a sandwich ($1.11 USD).

And, of course, the local steamed bun shops.

The food is simple, straightforward, delicious, and inexpensive.  What more could one want?
