Hailing from China’s frosty northeastern provinces – and characterised by oil-rich broths, succulent meats, pickled vegetables, dense wheat noodles, potatoes and steamed breads – Dongbei cuisine is the ultimate comfort food. Communist-themed chain restaurant Culiang Renjia (粗粮人家) is an ever-reliable option for worthy renditions of the classics at reasonable prices. Dongbei-style sweet and sour pork guobaorou (国宝肉) features juicy slices of twice-fried pork smothered in gelatinous sauce and peppered with ginger and garlic; the humble, no-frills ‘Farmer’s Harvest’ (nongjia da fengshou, 农家大丰收) arrives on a large platter with a generous portion of stewed, tender seasonal vegetables and roughly cut chunks of pork. It certainly ain’t fancy, but it does the trick.
