  • Dongguan Sausage

    Dongguan sausage is crispy, salty and rich in flavor. It is one of the top Guangdong preserved meats and is famous in China and abroad.


    Legend says that there was a very short man who sold sausages for a living. As he shouldered the sausages down the street, some of the longer sausages reached the ground and were rolled into the mud. People laughed at him, saying he was too short for the sausages. He found ways to make the sausages shorter and taste different from others. People could smell his short, fat sausages from far away, which attracted many customers. Today, people still call a short, smart person a “Dongguan Sausage”.
