local delicacy is Guilin Rice Noodles (Gui Lin
Mi Fen), also available as stir-fried (Chao Fen).
This is served everywhere, but try to avoid the
joints near the train station. Traditionally the
noodle and the topping is first eaten without
soup, and once the topping has run out there is
usually a pot of soup to add flavour to the rest
of your noodles. There are also various pickles
and condiments that you can add to your noodles.
A local snack is "Horse hoof cake" (Ma Ti Gao),
which is a crumbly cake stuffed with red beans
filling. Another delicious breakfast item is sweet
tofu infused with a certain flower. Look for roadside
vendors adding orange-coloured liquid to a steaming
hot bag of tofu, which you then drink with a straw.
