About Cantonese Cuisine: One of the Best Cuisines of the World
Canton, or Guangzhou, is the capital of the southern Chinese province, Guangdong, just north of Hong Kong. Among the four main cuisines in China, North Eastern (Mandarin), Sichuan, Eastern (Jiang-Zhe) and Cantonese cuisines, Cantonese is the most popular and the most famous of all. This is because of the geographic location of Canton. Being in the fertile delta region of the Pearl River opening into the South China Sea with the warm sub-tropical climate and abundant rainfall, Canton is most famous for its fresh vegetables and fresh and salt water seafood.
Besides, being the first port opened to the west, Hong Kong’s Cantonese chefs have a long history of being the most gifted and most sought after Chinese chefs all over the world. Cantonese food always appears at the Chinese State dinners to welcome foreign heads of states. Now you can enjoy the same Hong Kong/Cantonese culinary experience at Jasmine. No seafood is fresher than those swimming in our large salt-water tanks.
