Lunch at the Village of Fish and Rice
Locals have long referred Shunde as a "village of fish and rice" (魚米之鄉) - for its abundant produce from its fertile land at the Pearl River Delta region. And people from Shunde were known to have exquisite taste and cooking skills, and arguably, their dishes represented the best of Cantonese cuisine.
A couple friends of ours from church come to Shunde quite often so they rounded up a big group for a weekend of food, drink and fellowship. Both of us have been to a few towns nearby in Guangdong but it was only our first time setting foot at Shunde itself.
