I'm constantly amazed by the huge selection of food you can try in the South of China. My wife Ting is from Guangzhou, so we often spend time exploring the back lanes looking for food, and filming street food videos for our YouTube Channel. It's so full of delicious food here! It would truly take a lifetime to eat everything! Guangzhou is the capital city of Guangdong, which is famous in China and throughout the world as the home of Cantonese food, known here locally as Yuecai or 粤菜. Cantonese food is perhaps the most famous Chinese food around the world, mainly because the first and second wave Chinese immigrants came from the south of China; Guangdong, Fujian, and Hainan.
Here, in Guangdong, and the rest of the south of China, you can find elegant, refined cuisine that is best experienced in hole in the wall restaurants and high end restaurants alike.
Ps: to use Google maps and find these locations, I recommend using ExpressVPN. This is especially useful if you're using my other Chinese food guides, like my Xi'an food guide, my Chengdu food guide, and my Hong Kong Food Guide.
