Jiangyin (江阴;) is a port city in Jiangsu.

. . . Jiangyin . . .

The Jiangyin suspension bridge is the closest to the sea of the many bridges over the Yangtze. It connects Jiangyin to Jingjiang.

The local cuisine is rather unspectacular in terms of flavors, but the fish and freshwater shrimp are very fresh and cheap. Just as in any Chinese city, there are thousands of restaurants serving food from all corners of the country and for all budgets. Numerous KFC outlets, but no McDonald’s.

  • Turkish Restaurant. The expats’ favorite! Authentic Turkish food prepared by Uighur cooks under the supervision of the mustachioed Turkish boss. The menu is extensive, the prices fair, and they have excellent hookah (fruit-flavored tobacco) and water pipes imported from Turkey.
    Some taxi drivers know it under the name 土耳其饭店, but most have no idea. Ask them to drop you off at the International Hotel 国际大酒店, then walk 100 m north on Chaoyang Road 朝阳路 until you see WELCOME TO TURKISH RESTAURANT (sic) on an electronic board on your left.
     
  • Hanlin Korean Restaurant, 韩林碳烤 黄山路, +86 510-8861 7886. Excellent Korean fare, bibimbaps, barbecue, kimchi fried rice, sushi/sashimi. On Huangshan Road, a little east of the city center. There is also a mediocre Korean restaurant near the pedestrian street. 
  • Wawa Jiao, 蛙蛙叫 青果路. The bastardized Sichuan dish called 牛蛙干锅 (lit: bull frog dry pot, a stew made of mostly thinly sliced potatoes, ginger, garlic and of course frog) is pretty popular with the Jiangyin locals and most agree that Wawa Jiao is the best place in town to sample it. Make sure you are not on any kind of diet because it sure packs a lot of oil. On Qingguo Road, 200 m south of the Datonghua Supermarket 大统华超市. 
  • Höfbrauhaus München, 德国酒吧 酒吧街. Large Bavarian restaurant at one end of Bar Street. Their homemade brews are tasty, if a bit expensive, and the menu is huge but the portions are a bit on the small side. They sometimes have German or Filipino bands playing live.
