Youtiao or fried dough sticks
There are a number of ways to eat a dough stick. Some like to wrap it with pancakes, some like to soak it in soy milk, while others cut it into small pieces before dipping it into soy sauce. Some people, including the city’s famous comedian Zhou Libo, have a special penchant for the two ends of the dough sticks, which they believe are particularly crunchy. Since 2008, the fast food chain KFC has included fried dough sticks on its breakfast menus. But what has been marketed by KFC as “safe sticks” has been far less tempting
than the offerings from street food peddlars.
