Have a bite of Wanggezhuang giant mantou
Wanggezhuang subdistrict area in Qingdao's Laoshan district is a renowned regional bakery hub for mantou, the traditional steamed bun that is a staple for millions in northern China.
Many mantou shops in the area still adhere to traditional production methods. They mix wheat meal and spring water from Laoshan Mountain to create dough, then use their hands to knead the dough and steam the shaped buns on traditional wood burners.
Buns made in this area are in high demand both at home and abroad as they are rich in minerals, nourishing and easy to digest.
