Editor's note: Chongqing, the largest municipality in southwest China, is famous for its enchanting scenery and hilly topography. More and more people from across the world travel to this modern port city every year to experience its fascinating natural landscapes and traditional culture. But what visitors may be most reluctant to leave behind is Chongqing's unique cuisine. As with neighboring Sichuan Province, dishes in Chongqing are noted for their distinctively spicy and pungent taste, employing an array of flavorings such as chili pepper, sesame, scallions, ginger, garlic and soy sauce.
