WHERE TO EAT Shiziqiao Food Street
Ask any Nanjinger for the best place to taste local cuisine, especially freshwater fish dishes and the coveted Nanjing Duck (which is salted and roasted, and considered locally to be superior to Beijing’s more famous version), and you will be directed here. Each night, this vibrant strip of restaurants and bars pulses with atmosphere and great flavors. The courtyard-style Nanjing Dapaidang restaurant is highly recommended for its braised pork belly and marinated chicken with ginger, and can be found at 2 Shiziqiao“Lion’s Head Bridge”on the corner of Hunan Lu.
