Among the numerous cultural heritage, the Cai Ashui mutton making techniques come from the Cai Ashui Mutton Restaurant in Meili Ancient Town and have a history of more than 70 years. Still preserving the old flavor, Cai Ashui mutton features tender texture and delicious taste.

The Qian Family ancient wine making techniques also hail from the ancient town. Based on his family's winemaking skills, Qian Jianmin, the creator of the winemaking techniques, has also learned from other traditional techniques in Jiangnan reigon to develop different winemaking procedures.
