Eating is Shaoxing is one of the most important elements of your travel. By the food, you can taste another part of this old city.
Shaoxing has many restaurants with different tastes. People in Shaoxing spend much money on their food. Especially during the Spring Festival (Chinese Lunar New Year), all the family members are gathering together to have dinner everyday in different restaurants. It lasts to the last day of their holiday. To taste this special city by food, I suggest the tourists some special restaurants in Shaoxing.
Normally you don't need to make a reservation for these restaurants. But during the special time, for instance the Spring Festival, you have to make reservation in most of the restaurants, at least 3 days in advance.
