Eating

Small family-run restaurants are hidden behind hotels and down alleys off the main strip in Táihuái. You'll be steered towards táimó (台蘑), the much-revered local mushroom. Try táimódùn jīkuài (台蘑炖鸡块; táimó-stewed chicken), táimódùn tǔ jī (台蘑炖土鸡; táimó-stewed wild chicken) or táimódùn dòufu (台蘑炖豆腐; táimó-stewed tofu). However, táimó dishes are pricey (from ¥200) and aimed at tourists. There are plenty of other options, such as noodles (from ¥15) and meat dishes (from ¥40).
