Come to Baiyun district and embark on a culinary adventure in spring! Here are some recommended specialty foods!


Roast Suckling Pig


The roast suckling pig holds a special place in the culinary traditions of Guangdong province. It is not only a common dish at festive banquets but also a sacred offering to commemorate ancestors during Qingming Festival, also known as Tomb Sweeping Day. The pork skin attains a caramel hue from the gentle heat of a charcoal fire, while the meat releases a unique aroma with each succulent drip. The authentic roast suckling pig glimmers with a crimson hue, offering a crisp exterior and succulent interior that tantalizes the taste buds.

Mugwort, a plant renowned for its dual use in both cuisine and medicine in Guangdong, is prized for its ability to expel cold and dampness from the body. The cake made from mugwort has a unique earthy fragrance and is emerald in color. Its texture is tender and sweet, enhanced by the mellow flavors of fillings such as bean paste and sesame, creating a harmonious blend that will leave you hungry for more.
