Six, Emei, Leshan, what should not be missed snacks?

There are a lot of snacks in Emei and Leshan, such as bean curd, lame beef, chuanchuanxiang (chicken), egg-baking cake, sweet-skinned duck, and so on. When it comes to this, please allow me to swallow saliva. but! ! Although there is a snack street under Mount Emei, in fact, things are not delicious! And the price is expensive! It is not recommended to eat here! To be precise, the food and beverage outlets near the tourist center under the Emei Mountain are not tasty, and it is somewhat detrimental to the reputation of Emei snacks. A few kilometers away from the scenic spot, casually looking for a snack bar food stall on the roadside, the taste is better than the nearby area, or into the city to eat and eat. It must be said here that the more Emei Mountain goes up, the higher the price, the price of the Golden Summit is very high, a box of instant noodles must be sold for 15 pieces, and the food in the restaurant is even more expensive. Friends who are advised to spend the night in the mountains can bring some food up the mountain and carry a sweet duck back up the hill to ensure that the tears are delicious.
