Nanjing's cuisine is also referred to as Jing-Su cuisine. This alternate name originates from the combination of the city names of Nanjing in Jiangsu Province and Jiujiang in Jiangxi Province. This cuisine features a careful and prominent selection of ingredients, attractive colors and impressive fragrances. Although there are various kinds of ingredients in Nanjing, the many diverse duck dishes are still crowd pleasers.

Developed over 1,400 years of history, duck cooking skills in Nanjing have provided salted ducks, boiled salted ducks, braised ducks and salty duck gizzard. Each has its own unique character; Jinling even has its own kind of roast duck. Nanjing is also home to eight famous freshwater products, fish, lotus roots, cress and lotus seeds are just half of them, all of which are popular foods during Mid Autumn Festival.

Many famous restaurants provide delicious Nanjing dishes, such as Lao Zheng Xing Restaurant, Ma Xiang Xing Restaurant and Da San Yuan Restaurant. Additionally, there are three famous food streets in Nanjing including Shiziqiao Food Street (Lion's Bridge), Fuzimiao Street and Hanfu Street.
