Sour, sweet, bitter, salty and a little spicy, you can find almost every flavor in Chengdu.
Tender Beancurd (Douhua)
It is made with very soft tofu. It is also referred to as tofu pudding and soybean pudding. Douhua in Sichuan is often made without any sugar at all, then served by carrying pole or bicycle vendors with a number of condiments such as chili oil, soy sauce, Sichuan pepper, scallions, and nuts.
Ice Jelly
The success story of ice jelly is largely due to the fancy feel of springy jelly and the varied choice of ingredients, served in a fine container or in a plastic bowl as a takeaway. It lasts longer than ice creams and ice suckers since you don't have to worry it will soon melt away, and provides the visual and gustatory imaginations that soda or other cold drinks fail to bring to you.
Ice jelly is made from seeds of a kind of herb with other ingredients such as crushed ice, brown sugar syrup or other self-made sweeteners, fruits, crushed nuts, melon seeds, peanuts, haw flakes and currants.
Ye'erbasteamed pork dumplings
Ye'erba is available in most breakfast stores in downtown Chengdu, and becomes a special food eaten by locals in the period of the traditional Pure Brightness Festival. Pork and preserved mustard greens make a meaty filling for this sticky rice snack. It's cooked in banana or bamboo leaves for a distinctive flavor.
