Foodies, check this out! Fu Zhou's traditional sweet soup and stewed dishes will take you back to the good old taste of old Fu Zhou

This familiar city gives people an impression, which includes not only the chaotic traffic caused by the construction of sky bridges, subways, and roads, as well as the famous Sanfang Qixiang (Three Lanes and Seven Alleys), but also various types of traditional Chinese desserts and stewed dishes.

Deaf Uncle Yuan's Lantern Festival Shop

It is said that this shop originated in the Guangxu period. It did not have a storefront at the beginning. Lantern Festival snacks were favored by the people of Fuzhou when watching Min opera. Mr. Er, who was deaf, used to sell them while shouldering a theater troupe, going through streets and lanes. Later, Mr. Er's Lantern Festival snacks gradually became well-known in the neighborhood and he started selling them from a stall. Now it is already the fourth generation, and the old shop was very dilapidated at that time. It has now moved to a place close to Cangxia. Although the storefront is still small, with only four or five tables, it has a completely new look.

No Teeth Uncle Peanut Soup Shop

Some people say that their family is called Toothless Uncle because even an old man without teeth can drink the peanut soup at their home. Now there are many counterfeit shops nearby, and if you see a toothless peanut soup there, you might fall for it if you're not careful. Although I haven't tried those counterfeits, I can't say they're not delicious, but this one is absolutely the best!

Xue Jun Sheng Ji Stewed Delicacies

The shop is large because it offers fast food, so many people who work nearby or live nearby will come to eat during meal times, making it very lively. The shop has a variety of stews, such as pig heart, pig stomach, and Buddha Jumps Over the Wall.

Long-lasting lantern festival

Located across the street from Qiuying Rice Ball, it is also an old shop that has been around for decades. Although not as famous as Old Deaf Uncle, their Tangyuan (sweet rice balls) is also well-known in Fuzhou. The shop also offers Ciba (glutinous rice cake), Tongyuan (soup-filled dumplings), Fengan (rice flour dessert), and Banmian (mixed noodles), among others.

Peanut soup in Ye's family

Although I didn't go to this store this time, I've been there during my university days. The taste is on par with Meiya Bo, their taro paste, peanut soup, and sticky rice are all favorites. If you don't have time to go to Meiya Bo, eating at this place is just as good.
