What do people eat in ancient Kaifeng? Just read this article (breakfast edition)

Before going to Kaifeng, a colleague told me that the food in Kaifeng is not as good as in Luoyang. After going to Kaifeng, I just wanted to pat that colleague's shoulder and say, "My friend, it must be your way of running a restaurant that is the problem."

Bianliang Haode Lurou Fresh Soup Restaurant

Address: Building 6, Units 102-105, Wanshan Street (West Siqu Bridge), the store is very tidy. At the front desk, I ordered food, but there was no menu. The young girl said they only serve donkey meat soup and shredded pancake. The price of the donkey soup is 15 to 20 yuan. The price is not related to the portion of soup but to the quantity of meat. After ordering, take the receipt to the dim sum counter to collect the meal. The shredded pancake can be cooked by oneself or by the chef.

Da Liang Steamed Bun Restaurant

There are many people queuing next to the Drum Tower. Upon closer inspection, it turns out that they are queuing for baozi (steamed buns). Most of the people at the front are regular customers, grandparents who bought over twenty packages and a big bag of baozi. As a result, the baozi were sold out as soon as they came out of the oven, and it took about ten minutes to wait in line. The meat baozi cost 1.5 yuan each, while the vegetable baozi cost 1 yuan each. There are many varieties of vegetable fillings, including carrot, tofu residue, and pickled vegetables. Among them, the meat baozi is the most famous. The bun skin is not thick and has a bit of chewiness. The meat filling, mixed with southern-style sauce, is different and relies solely on the freshness of the meat. The taste is pretty good, but if the queue is too long, it may not be worth it.
