However, when we got here, we realized that rice is more of a south China food. Sure, there is rice here in the north, and we still eat it, but it is not the foundation of every meal like I had thought before.
What is big here is dumplings
It isn’t the foundation of every meal, but it is the specialty here. When people have guests, or on special days, they make dumplings. There are lots of little shops selling dumplings along the road.
