Peach Garden is a famous snack bar located at the intersection of Shengli Street and Lanling Road in Hankou District. It dates back to 1946 when two vendors, named Tao and Yuan respectively, sold snacks there such as youtiao (a fried dough stick) and soybean milk. Afterwards, these two vendors incorporated as one restaurant named Xiao Tao & Yuan to sell stewed soup. After liberation, Little Peach Garden was used for its similar Chinese pronunciation with Xiao Tao & Yuan and it became a restaurant famous for stewed soup. There is a variety of stewed soup such as chicken soup stewed in earthen jar, pork chop soup, tipang (the uppermost part of a pork leg) soup, turtle soup, soft-shelled turtle soup, beef soup and duck soup, among which the chicken soup stewed in earthen jar is the most famous. The material for the chicken soup is the meat of fat and tender hen weighing over one and a half jin (500g in English) in Huangpi and Xiaogan. The working procedure for it is as follows: chop the hen meat into lumps, add oil and fry them with strong heat, put them into the boiling water in an earthen jar and stew with strong heat until it is well cooked. Featured by fresh soup and well-done chicken with high nutrition, it is recommended as a good nutriment for the old, sick and the pregnant. In addition, turtle soup and other kinds of soup are also very delicious and well received by customers.
