Traditional food

Five-colored sticky rice and painted eggs are traditional food for the Shangsi Festival. The Zhuang people believe rice is good for health and painted eggs are seen as a symbol of love.

People will make five-colored sticky rice cake, which can be eaten directly after steaming or made into fried rice. It is made by using various natural colorings, such as buffalo grass, which has bright colors and stimulates the appetite.
