Yiwu Dining

Due to Yiwu's prosperous economy people from all over the country swarm there all year round. This means they bring their local cuisines to the city which is great news for anyone looking for something delicious to eat. There is a fabulous choice awaiting you from a wide variety of top class restaurants to the more humble snack stalls. Of course, this does not mean that Yiwu has none of its own local food for visitors to sample. There is no need to worry; the city enjoys an advantageous position and a mild climate, which means it has several of its own products, some of which have long been world famous.



Ham, jujube (sometimes known in the West as the Chinese Date) and brown sugar are considered to the three treasures of Yiwu. In the city, an old saying goes that eating three jujubes every day will stave off senility in human beings. At the same time, the city is also noted as the hometown of brown sugar which is richer in nutrition than white sugar. Finally, don't forget to sample Yiwu Ham. All these can be bought in the shops here.

This is not the end of tasting the delicious food to the full. Coming to the city's streets and lanes, you must have a try of Donghe Meat Cake and Yiting Pulled Noodles. The Donghe Meat Cake is a very thin cake made from half-lean pork. They originated from Donghe Village and considered to be a good wife's standard. Highly popular with the locals, the cake and noodles are very famous in Yiwu, and you are able to sample them both at roadside stalls as well as in deluxe restaurants. Now, you will find several cake diners in Huagong Road.

As well as these, other townships in Yiwu City have their own specialties. For example, the crisp cake made in Fotang Town, the sesame cake in Suxi Town and the fried cake of Ersanli Town.
