A very historic street, the most formidable building here is Yan Zhenqing's Zhaxi Creek Museum and the ultra-wealthy Wang Ansheng's residence from the Republic of China period. As of now, the street has been restored to its former glory. Indeed, it is an important part of the common memory of the people of Huzhou city and each block, building and even piece of quartzite tells a story.


A culturally enriching environ translates into a healthy appetite, and visitors enjoy the old stories as much as the food here. The day of many local Huzhou people starts with a bowl of steaming stuffed buns. Unlike the common oval buns, the outer layer of the squarish Ding Linfang Bun is as thin as a cicada's wing. A perfect accompaniment to a bowl of bean silk noodles, the rich flavor and textures of this meal impresses all those who try it.


For die-hard foodies, a single meal alone is insufficient to satisfy a voracious appetite. Besides the Dinglianfang Bun, there are a lot of famous Huzhou restaurants such as the Zhoushengji Restaurant and Zhulaoda Restaurant which are worth a try. Plenty of tourists make a special trip here attracted by the reputation of Zhou Shengji’s chicken feet and wontons. These dishes, despite their humble nature, remain extraordinary and satisfy even the most discerning of palates.
