Defachang has many special dishes, but the dearest is jiaozi made of Shark fin. Another kind of jiaozi as big as a small fingertip filled with chicken meat. It is called a pearl jiaozi and is boiled in a hotpot of chrysanthemum soup. About this, there is a vivid story that when Empress Dowager Ci Xi came to the city she asked her cook to provide her with a new taste, and the cook prepared this kind of jiaozi to please her. It was well received. She ate three, six or nine in number, which is regarded in China as meaning good luck. Today, the words are different, for having one jiaozi, means to go off smoothly, two jiaozi for double happiness coming at the same time. When having jiaozi, you can listen to the story and receive a beautiful blessing.
