 Talking about the descendants of Lis family dishes in the storm


In a telephone interview with the media, Li Jiacais response was very brief: they think its not worth it. We have no way to do it ourselves.

On September 29, the reporter from dazhong.com.poster went to Lijia restaurant, No.11, Yangfang Hutong, Houhai, to talk to Li Li, the second daughter of Li Jiacai founder, and her husband Cong Chunsheng, to understand the story behind do yourself well.

History: the first self-employed restaurant in Xicheng. It has been in Hutong for 35 years

When it comes to Li family cuisine, many peoples first reaction is court cuisine. But what is court food? Why did this Li family dish, which makes palace dishes, come into being? How long has it been open?

In 1984, 25-year-old Li Li participated in the first national day family banquet Invitational Competition held by CCTV. Within the specified time, the contestants need to use a chicken, a fish, a kilo and a half of meat, a kilo of eggs and a kilo of vegetables to make a recipe of no less than 8 dishes and 1 soup. Finally, Li Li beat more than 2000 competitors to win the championship with four cold dishes, eight hot dishes, one beet and one soup.

Over the past 35 years, this Li family dish hidden in Houhai Hutong has welcomed numerous political and business celebrities. The plaque Li Jia Cai hanging in a corner of the private room proves that the inscription was made by Pu Jie, the younger brother of Puyi, the last emperor of the Qing Dynasty.

Taste: adhere to the traditional practice and do a good job in palace flavor dishes

What is palace food? Li Li said that when the court was gone, the palace dishes would not exist either.

To be exact, Lis cuisine is a palace style dish. Today, the dishes that customers can eat in the store, to a large extent, restore the way the palace people ate and taste, the workmanship is more meticulous..

Our restaurant has been open for 35 years without spending a cent on advertising. Its all about word of mouth. Li Li said that Lis cuisine adheres to traditional practices and maintains its traditional taste, which has never changed in recent years.

You see the bacon in red, but we dont make it with pigment. We use the color of red cabbage head, the color of real vegetables, and we wont use anything added

Lis mustard is not salty, sour or fleeing, but it is spicy.

He mentioned that the mustard mound was made according to the recipe provided to Cixi at that time, which improved the taste of old Beijing, which was that it was immediately rushed to the back of the head, and the eyes were dripping with tears. He stressed that Jingbai is also used in the food, but other peoples homes cant make this kind of taste.

Cong Chunsheng said that the fried lotus root box, which is made every day in the shop all year round, must be white lotus root. Why? At first, he didnt know. Later, he heard from the diners in Hubei province that the lotus root with white flowers tastes delicious, sweet and crispy. It was used for frying, frying and mixing. And other lotus root species (Honghua lotus root) are more suitable for soup and stew, because the taste is noodles.

Attitude: its hard to adjust to the public opinion. Lis family food fans are all over the world

Why only offer a set meal instead of a single order?

In the 1980s, Chinese peoples living standard had not reached the point where they could easily go to restaurants. But foreigners who patronize Chinese restaurants cant understand the names of dishes and often order at random. As a result, Li family dishes will launch different price options, cold dishes, hot dishes, chicken, duck and fish are all well matched..

Cong Chunsheng said that all the dishes in the shop were marked with prices, and they were ready to eat. He also said with a smile that Lis fans are all over the world, including former US President Bill Clinton.

Wang Yuhengs photos show that there are 10 dishes on the table, including Beijing bacon, fried bean curd, fried lotus root box, jadeite tofu, fried creaky, spicy beef, mustard pier, etc. Wang Yuheng commented on his microblog that Ma tofu was not selling well, while Li Li said, thats what old Beijing is about..

(function(){( window.slotbydup=window .slotbydup||[]).push({id:u5811557,container:ssp_ 5811557, async:true }Whats the flavor of tofu in other places? How do you feel when you come here to eat? Cong Chunsheng told the public network u00b7 poster news reporter that those who know know it will understand it naturally. Many laymen do not know about it. Hemp bean curd is one of the three products of mung bean. It can be divided into two ways: the former uses goat oil; the latter uses vegetable oil; the latter is plain oil, and pork stuffing is put in. If I had told them about the dishes that day, he would have nothing to do with it. In the face of the accusation on the Internet, Cong Chunsheng waved his hand. We have been running stores for more than 30 years, and we have satisfied more than 90% of the tastes of men, women, old and young, but there are always a few people who are not satisfied, are they? Qing is self-cleaning, we have no need to respond to anything. Lilly said, you have to understand, its hard to say. Source: Poster news editor: Yu changzong_ NBJ11145
