Baked Flat Bread

Flat bread is prepared by baking. Baked flat bread is crunchy(1) and delicious. If the bread cools after you take it home, just remember to bake it again in an oven. It will taste fresh and delicious.
Fried Salty Cake
As the fried salty cake is a specialty of Kinmen, you can find it only at one of the local food stands near the Chastity Arch in downtown Jincheng. The preparation of a fried salty cake is done first by grinding(2) rice into a fluid,(3) then steaming it and letting it cool. Before frying it, you have to cut it into square pieces. Take a bite while it is still hot, and it will smell and taste delicious. Spicy sauce will make it even better, though this depends on personal preference.
Stir-fried Sand Worm
Sand worms live in the mud flats of the intertidal(4) zone stretching from Shuitou to Siyuan. They comprise one of the Kinmen local delicacies,(5) and they taste marvelous. Proverbially, there are three steps in enjoying this delicious dish-catch the sand worms swiftly, stir-fry them rapidly, and eat them fast.
The pure local oxen of Kinmen make beef dishes indispensable(6) for tourists whenever they arrive in Kinmen. The meat is very tender and delicate. Besides using beef in the famous meals, people also make the beef into popular beef jerky(7) with a variety of flavors.
