Ji Zai Biscuits, Guangzhou’s leading kind of biscuits, was originally known as “Xiao Feng Biscuits”. Legend has it that Ji Zai Biscuits were created by a female domestic helper of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). But, the biscuits didn’t become famous until half a century later when, frustrated by the sluggish sales of mid-autumn festival moon cakes, biscuit makers at Guangzhou’s Chengzhu Teahouse made the bold move to adopt the Xiao Feng biscuit production technique and use a mixture of mashed moon cakes, pork and cabbage hearts as fillings to produce sweet, salty and crispy flavor. Due to their extraordinary flavor and extra crispiness, the biscuit became an instant hit among customers.
Ji Zai Biscuits is a famous snack in Chengzhu Restaurant. It can be also found in traditional restaurant like Lian Xiang Lou, Guangzhou Restaurant, and Tao Tao Ju.
