The lake's father has many holes, and the karst terrain makes it a "rich" cave. For those who come here, "hiding into the 'hole' into a unified system, managing his spring and summer and autumn and winter" is the best choice to avoid the summer heat - although the temperature in the hole does not let you break into the ice The feeling of the cave, but once you get to the hole, look at the cold white mist that rushes out and let you enter the cool world. Zhanggongdong can be said to be one of the most famous caves of the lake. Like almost all tourist attractions in China, it also has an "old legend" - it is said that Zhang Daoling of the Han Dynasty and Zhang Guo of the Tang Dynasty They have all cultivated here. But I am interested in the development history of Zhanggongdong. The development of Zhanggongdong can be traced back to a village called Yixing Township in the south of Yixing Township. It started construction in 1919, and it has been developing intermittently for more than 10 years. Finally, in 1934. Opened at the end of the year. In other words, during the Republic of China, there were many ethnic entrepreneurs, mostly machinery and textiles, and tourist developers were quite rare. From this, I can see that although I did not know why Shuxiang had done this tourism development in the past, it was indeed in the forefront of the times. From the largest Haiwang Hall in the cave, the temperature rises steadily, and the hole is drilled. It is already the peak of Mengfeng. Looking back, it is like stepping out from a huge eggshell. The wonder of Zhang Gongdong is really "Go to heaven."

When I had a few big dishes, I had a long-lost intimacy. Because it is close to my hometown, Yixing's diet is very similar to my hometown. The dishes are similar and delicious. This fish head soup is the signature dish of the restaurant. We also have fish head soup in our hometown. After a few years of long-term stay, I rarely go home.

With the development of the times, people are paying more and more attention to the dishes, and more and more attention to health, in the scientific mix of the chefs, carefully prepared, the dishes are colorful, showing unlimited possibilities. turtle, wild bamboo chicken, this dinner is not only high in value, but also rich in nutritional value.

Umi rice is a feature of Jiangsu and Anhui provinces. It is a custom to cook black rice with black rice leaves. The eighth day of the lunar calendar, the eighth day of the lunar calendar, is the traditional Chinese food festival. The folklore is because the disciples of Sakyamuni are connected, for the mother to eat rice, to find a way to dye rice with the South candle leaves, boiled into a black rice, and the hungry ghosts dare not eat the black rice, the mother can Full of stomach. Later, the common people ate the Wujiu every year to commemorate the filial son. Yixing has many bamboos and many natural bamboo shoots, so bamboo shoots are also a home-cooked dish on the table.
