Dragon tiger phoenix

Dragon tiger phoenix
Traditional Chinese 龍虎鳳
Simplified Chinese 龙虎凤

Dragon tiger phoenix is an old type of Cantonese cuisine dish found almost exclusively in South China regions such as Guangdong.


The name of the dish comes from the use of 3 animals. The dragon is represented by snake, tiger is represented by cat (sometimes Masked Palm Civet is substituted) and phoenix is represented by chicken.[1][2]


There are a few varieties of the dish. One version is literally called the "Dragon tiger phoenix big braise" (龍虎鳳大燴).[1] Another is the Chrysanthemum Dragon tiger phoenix" (菊花龍虎鳳).[3] Possibly a liquid version is the "Dragon tiger phoenix wine" (龍虎鳳酒).
