Tianjin’s cuisine has a long and impressive menu from both Han and Muslim kitchens. Tourists can enjoy popular vegetarian dishes and snacks spiced with local flavors, including:

Shiba Jie Mahua (fried dough twist)
Sweet-smelling and crispy, Shiba Jie Mahua won’t go bad even when stored for several months.

Goubuli steamed stuffed bun
The Goubuli steamed stuffed bun is also known as the food calling card of Tianjin, which isn’t an exaggeration as it has been around for more than 150 years. Now its chain restaurants can be found in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and other cities in China as well as cities in America, Japan and Korea.

Erduoyanzhagao (ear-hole-like fried rice cakes)
The Erduoyanzhagao is made of rice flour and has also been around for a long time more than 100 years. It’s made of small red beans and white granulated sugar as its stuffing which is then deep fried in sesame oil.
