When it comes to learning about the history and traditions of a culture, history books have been the number one resource that people immediately go to. It’s useful but it’s not always so fun. Know what is? Trying dishes whose recipes have been passed down from traditions that began decades ago.
So, take a break from that history lesson you’ve been reading, visit A bite of Hunan, try their dishes, and prepare yourself for a unique experience that’ll leave you with a full stomach and a pocket full of stories about Hunan culture.
Despite being a hole-in-the-wall, hidden restaurant, the people behind A bite of Hunan aren’t afraid to show off their roots. In fact, they are loud and proud of it. This is not only expressed in the interiors but also in the authentic Hunan dishes that they offer.
Fun Fact: Hunan cuisine is also called Xiang cuisine because it came from the Xiang region.
Known as one of the 8 great cuisines of China, Hunan cuisine has, no doubt, dynamic dish flavors. It’s a symphony of different flavor notes – rich, fresh, hot, and sour. This restaurant will take your tastebuds on a ride, starting you off on the hot and sour notes of the smaller dishes, before taking you on a journey towards a wider range of flavors with each new plate.
If you’re into spicy food and you want to familiarize yourself with the cuisine, the two dishes below are good places to start.
Dongpo Braised Cube Pork
It may be too early to say this but if you would like to take the experience home with you, you can start with at least one of the main ingredients that they use – chili sauce.
Fun Fact: In Hunan cuisine, they utilize both vinegar and chilis to create their distinct flavor profile.
For those who are not a fan of spicy food, don’t worry, there are milder dishes for you to try.
