Hohhot Breakfasts: You Tiao
One of the most classic breakfasts in Hohhot is a you tiao paired with a cup of warm soy milk (dou jiang). You can get this from roadside vendors, in fast food restaurants, or in almost any place that sells breakfast.
My husband has been a fan of the Chinese History Podcast for a long time, but recently one of the episodes he listened to references the history behind this breakfast food. Here’s the link if you’re interested. You’ll have to listen to the whole thing to get to the connection to the you tiao, but check if out.
Or check out any of the episodes to learn more about China’s history.
