Top 10 bars and restaurants in Guangzhou and Chengdu

When it comes to dining, Chengdu and Guangzhou are vastly varied. In Chengdu, you’d be hard-pressed to pass an alley or a street without hearing either the shuffling of Mahjong tiles or raucous chatter emanating from hotpot restaurants.

People’s love for food is almost revered with religious fervour. In 2000, Chengdu became the first city in Asia to be designated by UNESCO as a ‘City of Gastronomy’, ahead of Hong Kong and Tokyo. The city epitomizes the spicy Sichuanese dishes characterised by the numbing Sichuanese peppercorns and a plethora of spices, while Guangzhou, the epicenter of Cantonese food, pays homage to fresh ingredients with minimal flavourings and lots of attention to details.

From street stalls to highbrow restaurants in five-star hotels, food in these two cities have become what defines its people: buoyant and quick-tongued locals from hotpot-slurping Chengdu, and humble, scrupulous ‘Guangdongers’.

Here, we round up the best eateries and bars from the two cities.
