24. Yes, ChengDu had the best food in China as far as I am concerned.

Every restaurant was better than the last.
If you go back to China, I recommend Cheng Du.
The people were also the friendliest in China I thought.
I spent a lot of time talking to the folks in ChengDu.
Their English was quite good.

Cheng Du is also the home to the Panda Breeding Center and was a highlight of the China trip.
Got to see all the little baby pandas. Adorable.

When I was in Cheng Du in 2014 they would not let foreigners go to some of the restaurants.
They said the food was too hot and would kill us!
I didn't take any chances and stuck to the permitted restaurants.
A friend went in the dark of night to an off limits restaurant and lived to tell the tale.
The heat level was not too bad he said.

I am not usually a big food person, but the food was extraordinary in China.
Did you go to Xi'an? The dumplings there were unbelievable.
Loved the noodles in Beijing.

The hotel breakfast rooms were huge with Chinese and European foods stacked high.
I don't normally eat breakfast but I spent a couple of hours eating my way across the piles of food.
It is embarrassing to admit as I am a tiny person and don't normally eat much.

I don't drink, so cannot comment on Chinese wine, etc.
But I would see large tables of businessmen knocking back these huge bottles of beer, like a wine bottle size.

Did you stay at the White Swan in Guangzhou by any chance?
