1. Mahua, fried dough twist

When talking about delicacies in Northern China's Tianjin, people may initially think of mahua, or fried dough twist.

Made of flour, sesame, walnut, peanuts and sweet-scented osmanthus, the snack usually comes deep fried. A variety of flavors are available regardless if you prefer to eat sweet or salty.

Out of the variety of shops that sell mahua, the 18th Street shop is the most renowned. Tianjin's Hexi district hosts a museum of mahua, where you can learn about the history of the fried food and get a glimpse of how it is made on the factory line.

If you go:

Guifaxiang Mahua Cultural Museum, 32 Dongting Road, Hexi district, Tianjin. 88812002 ext 8888
