Jing Yang Guan, established in 1907, sells pickled cucumbers, dried vegetables, fermented soya beans and other preserved vegetables. The air in the store is heavy with the strong but not unpleasant salty smell of preserved food. "It smells like old Hangzhou," says a saleswoman.
Dubbed one of the four renowned pickled vegetable stores across the country, Jing Yang Guan's foods were given as tributes to Empress Dowager Cixi during the late years of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
