The Chinese food in Wuhan is sort of a combination of western and coastal cuisine (like Zhejiang Cuisine). Red pepper and sharp spice is used, but not as much as in Sichuan Cuisine. Wuhan style cuisine focuses on preparation, cooking time and the appearance of the dishes. Fish and shellfish are available, but like the rest of China, most of the meat dishes are pork or chicken dishes.
Snacks such as buns, fried dumplings and omelets are also popular here. The quality of the sweet deserts is surprising. The rolls and a small semi-sweet pancake were especially good. The small pancakes are kind of like little soft cookies. This seems something unique to Wuhan, since it was unfamiliar.
