As the gourmet heaven of China, Guangzhou is not only well known for its exceptional local food, but the wide choice of international cuisine. In this city you have the chance to taste authentic European cuisines, Middle Eastern fare or even traditionally spicy and sour food from South-east Asia in a variety of cafés, hotels and restaurants across the city.
Local hotels are now providing more opportunities to sample this exotic cuisine from Vietnam, Thailand and beyond and to lure more eaters to its buffet restaurants. Although five-star hotel buffet prices, you can eat as much as you like from a wide selection and get a true taste of the South-east Asia region. At the moment, a 15-day Vietnamese Food Festival is being celebrated at the Crowne Plaza Guangzhou City Center until March 15.
It is believed a number of gourmet chefs favour Vietnamese gastronomy thanks to its fresh and nutritious ingredients as well as its variation in taste. The guest chefs at the Crowne plaza hail from Hue and Ho Chi Minh City. Their specialties include Vietnam spring rolls, curry beef pho, Bun Bo Hue, three-color ice and cane shrimp. Their unique fish sauce, the secret to those skinny Vietnamese ladies, adds real zing to the region's dishes.
