Culinary delights are a long history on the tip of the tongue as well as a cultural memory.

With thousands of years of history, Shaanxi has political, economic and cultural advantages. Shaanxi cuisines combine the essence of local features, integrate the flavors of ethnic specialties, and inherit skills of imperial cuisines.

In addition, thanks to the above two advantages, Shaanxi cuisine has distinctive characteristics, such as profound cultural connotation, wide varieties and different flavors.
