Ghost food in Chengdu, western of China

posted on 14th of september, 2007

Ghost food, as nicknamed by locals who are always up to labeling things in a disparaging way, has a long history in Chengdu, which also boasts a great number of top class restaurants serving glamorous foods. The ghost food sprang up as grassroots ingenuity many years ago when some poorer people set up shaky tables with wooden benches and planted ovens on the roadsider to carry on a catering business targeting at night owls and people who left off night-shifts. The original form of ghost food business has evolved into its modern version as some restaurants, even the top-notch ones in the city keep open deep into the early morning, serving a great variety of food (Sichuan,Cantonese or Western), instead of the cheap noodles, fried rice and Chuanchuanxiang of its obscure birth.

Iconograph is "lengguo Chuanchuangxiang"
