About Shenzhen

Shenzhen is located in the southern part of Guangdong Province and on the eastern shore of the Pearl River Delta, with over  10 million people. Neighboring Hong Kong and Macau, Shenzhen's location gives it a geographical advantage for economic development. In 1980, the first Special Economic Zone of China was established in Shenzhen. In the 1980s, Shenzhen grew seemingly overnight from a humble fishing village to a metropolis, and remains as the primary symbol of the reform and opening policy of China. Today, the city has become a highlight of China for its rapid economic growth.

While Shenzhen has had to overcome a number of obstacles resulting from this population swell, the city has also benefited from the increased diversity. Workers come to Shenzhen from almost every part of china, bringing with them their local traditions and cuisines.

Yue Cai (Cantonese Cuisine)
Generally speaking, Cantonese Cuisine consists of dishes from three areas: Guangzhou, Chaozhou and Dongjiang. The latter two have unique ethnic flavors and are popular in Shenzhen. The outstanding Chaozhou dish is the porridge, which can be enjoyed as a white porridge, or as a salt porridge with some added seafood. The Dongjiang dishes are Hakka recipes handed down from generation to generation. Three of the popular ones are: Yanjuji (salt-baked chicken), Niangdoufu (stuffed bean curd) and Hongshaorou (braised pork with soy sauce).
