There is also a live cooking station dedicated to Reganmian (热干面). Called hot dry noodles in English, reganmian is the most popular breakfast dish in Wuhan so make sure to try it during your visit.

I was able to try the breakfast buffet at Café Wu during my stay at Shangri-La Hotel Wuhan. As always, when I am traveling, I would skip Western food and make sure I try out the local dishes. This is why I love staying in a Shangri-La because they always include local and regional specialties in their buffet spread.

My first plate included dishes from the Chinese station. I had Wuhan Fried Rice, which I find a more savory version of Yangzhou Fried Rice. I also got some steamed vegetables, roasted five-spice chicken, and some steamed buns and dumplings.

As mentioned earlier, reganmian (热干面) is one of the must-try dishes for breakfast here at Café Wu. This noodle dish is served with a thick sauce consisting of soy sauce and sesame paste. It is then topped with pickled vegetables, chopped green onion, and chili oil. Thoroughly mix the noodles and the sauce to even out all the flavors.

Two other Wuhan delicacies that you must try at Café Wu are the doupi (豆皮), a fried sticky rice dish layered with bean skin, chopped mushroom, pork, and green onion, and the mianwo (面窝), a fried doughnut-shaped snack made of flour, soy milk, rice milk, sesame, and chopped green onions.

Finally, I ended my breakfast with a platter of fresh fruits consisting of oranges, cubed watermellon and honeydew which I paired with a glass of chilled orange juice.
