It is a great place to experience traditional food stalls, markets, unique dishes, and desserts.

    Authentic Goat-meat Delicacies

    Authentic Goat-meat Delicacies Gangshan boasts not only a great number of scenic spots, but also goat meat. Unlike many restaurants that use imported goat meat that has been refrigerated or frozen, Mr. Cai always used prime meat from freshly slaughtered animals, a practice continued by his descendants and successors. Every part of each goat, from nose to tail, can be used as an ingredient. Various cooking methods are employed, including stir-frying and stewing, to bring out the superior taste and texture of prime goat meat. In addition to goat-meat hot pots, gourmets all know that sauteed sliced goat-meat is one of the restaurant's signature dishes. Whether it's sauteed with scallion, sesame oil, barbecue sauce with rice, or served in a soup with Angelica Sinensis, meals here can easily satisfy the greatest of hungers. What's more, the flavor of goat-meat rice noodles, another of this restaurant's standout dishes, has remained consistently delectable for more than 60 years. So come out to Gangshan and enjoy its unique food culture and beautiful scenery.
