Hakka Cuisine

The Hakka are Chinese people whose come from the Hakka dialect speaking areas of southern China. There are more than four million Hakka in Taiwan and they form the second-largest ethnic group on the island. They have their own characteristic cuisine. At a recent Hakka food fair I was able to take some photos of their tasty dishes.
