Various food in season

This is the delicious Foshan

Spring is like a banquet with lots of unique delicious food. In this season, every food seems to contain the taste of spring. Foshan people are experts in making a variety of delicacies in spring, leaving this unique freshness on the tongue.

Qingtuan, made of wormwood, is Foshan people's favorite in spring. Wormwood is classified as warm ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine, which could help people disperse cold and dampness. Having a bite of Qingtuan, you would be loaded with full energy.

Every year from March to May, it is the harvest season for mulberry in Nanhai. The combination of red and purple mulberry is like a color palette, spreading out a fresh aroma. Having a bite of mulberry, your taste buds will encounter the fabulous combo of sweetness and sourness.
