These Binfen and Liangxia shops can make your summer perfect
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Chongqing people cannot spend summer well without Binfen (literally cold rice noodles, jelly-like food), Liangxia (literally cold shrimp, shrimp-like flour made food) and Lianggao (literally cold cake, gelatinous cake-like food). We collected several shops both popular and offered delicious food this time. Don’t forget to give them a try.

In addition, fruit-flavored Ciba (Chinese traditional cake made with glutinous rice and sesame) is also offered. It is jelly-like and glutinous but not soft. With jams of various kinds added, it can be served with Binfen, which is much more delicious.

Guolin Lianggao 国林凉糕
The shop has been in business for several years without much publicity in Jiulongpo District. The shop is small in size, and has a sign being ignored. However, fans are attracted by the Lianggao. Traditional Brown Sugar Lianggao tastes smooth, without granules or blocks. A single sip melts it and the brown sugar used is not too sweet. In addition to original flavored Brown Sugar Lianggao, options for lemon, mango and watermelon flavors are also available.

It’s an old shop that has been in business for many years, with a broken stall, two small tables, and several basins, which has undergone countless summers with countless people. Simple white porcelain bowls and stainless-steel spoons, everything looks so simple and unobtrusive, but the taste here is as simple as the taste of Liangxia when you are young.
