I'm off to China next week, to eat and enjoy and spit out bones.. I can't wait. Will head for the muslim part of Xian for jiaozi, but any specific places? I don't need posh, just wonderful food in friendly surroundings (if possible).
Then off to Chengdu for hotpot and ma po dofu. Any ideas where? street food? Where should I stay to be near the action?
Lastly Wuhan and Dali -- what should I look for?
Many thanks -- I'll report back in a month.
