What to Eat in Jinghong?

1. Dai-style pineapple rice菠萝饭

This is an iconic Dai dish, combining two staples of the Xishuangbanna region — pineapples and rice. It is served as part of a meal even though it is quite sweet, but it is not a dessert. Add sugar or honey to taste. The trick is to ensure that chunks of pineapple, rather than pineapple juice, are mixed with the rice, otherwise it will turn almost sloppy. A new trend is to add cooked peanuts with the skin on. The dish looks even more attractive if a combination of white and red rice are used.
