Hi wonderful hounds,
I am going to China in August, and before I get there, I would love to educate myself about the regional cuisines by testing out some of the different specialties. I would love recommendations for authentic places/dishes at those places that might represent the different cuisines (although I recognize I may not be able to try all of them in the Boston area). FWIW, I live in Somerville, but I have a car.
Here are the places I am visiting in China: Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Guilin, and Hong Kong.
Thanks so much in advance!
P.S. Recommendations for books/websites also much appreciated!
