Delicious Traditional Chinese Foods in Changchun

Chinese food culture is well known around the world and has a long history. Here I would like to introduce some delicious traditional Chinese foods in Changchun.

Changchun is the provincial capital of Jilin in northeast of China, which is called as the oriental Detroit and oriental Hollywood.

The Huibaozhen dumpling

Huibaozhen dumpling is the Hui nation featured food with Islamic flavor, which has a history of 70 years. The dumpling wrapper is very thin and the filling for dumplings is large. The taste of the Huibaozhen dumplings soup tastes especially fresh. It is said that there are only two most authentic Huibaozhen dumplings restaurants in Changchun. You must not miss it the next time you went to Changchun.


The name of this kind food is strange. I also don’t know how to express it in English. We can get from the above picture that the wheaten food and the vegetables or the meat can be cooked at the same pot at the same time. We can say that it is cooked once for all. This set of foods can be served as a whole. It also can be seen the featured foods in the cold northeast China region. Almost all the restaurants in Changchun serve this food. You can play and eat this Yiguochu at the same time.

Bean paste with snow cover

As a Chinese who likes to learn English, I must admit that the name of Chinese dishes is very poetic. Even the most common dish can own the most poetic name. Just like this dish, translated literally, it is just white sweet and bean paste. Its Chinese name is poetic. However, after translated into English, its poetic meaning loses. No matter what names it has, just enjoy it now.

Eastern large flat cake with smoked meat

Changchun is featured with its smoked meat, which is made from the high quality fresh pork. First, the pork is boiled with dozens of medicinal herbs and then the pork will be smoked. Without you trying it by yourself, you will never imagine the taste of this smoked meat. In addition, the large flat cake is made by specific ways. Even you don’t visit sight spots in Changchun, you should not miss this food.

The precious feast of Mt. Long White

Changchun is close to the Mt. Long White, where there are countless natural treasures such as ginseng, antler velvet, bear paw, mushrooms and so on. The precious feast of Mt. Long White can’t be seen as a single dish, it can be divided into six big dishes. All of those dishes are made from the wild animals or plants in Mt. Long White.

  1. The dumplings, we call it ‘momo’ here, cooked with chicken or fried onions inside, and served with soup. I don’t like it thought because of too much onions, but it sure is popular.
