With an immigrant population from all over China and foreign business people from around the world, Shenzhen restaurants and markets serve up a wide range of quality Chinese cuisine and international fare, though the level of sophistication in this boomtown is generally a long way from the elegance of Shanghai, comfortable luxury of Hong Kong or established traditions of Beijing. Good, cheap Sichuanese and Hunanese restaurants bring the heat, while Guangdong places provide milder (and sometimes wilder, as in non-domesticated animals) fare drawn from the traditional regional cuisine. Muslim restaurants and street-side kebab grills are common, as are Western and Chinese chain restaurants. Cheap Chinese eats—dim sum, noodles, stir fries, dumplings—are plentiful and generally excellent.
