When it comes to barrel chicken, we should first talk about the centuries-old shop in Kaifeng, Ma Yuxing, which has many stores in many parts of the country under his banner. Maybe you are not unfamiliar with this name. But when it comes to its full name, Ma Yuxing, a religion in Jinling, few people know about it. From its name, we can see that Ma Yuxing was not born and bred in Kaifeng. The founder of Ma Yuxing was Ma Yongcen. Ma Jia was originally a Hui of Yunnan and had a prominent family background. During the Shunzhi period of the Qing Dynasty, Wu Sangui troops entered Yunnan, and Ma Jia was greatly affected. So they moved to Jinling (now Nanjing) and opened it. In the years of Xianfeng, because of the war between the Taiping Army and the Qing Dynasty, Jinling was in the midst of arms and fire, and the Ma family came to Kaifeng under the leadership of Ma Yongcen. At that time, Kaifeng's business name was "Yushengyong", which mainly managed food from north to south. Ma Yongcen, aiming at the situation that chickens are abundant in the Central Plains, combined with the processing methods of Nanjing duck products, has made painstaking research, using hens as raw materials, without opening the mouth or breaking the stomach, making the chickens barrel-shaped, and has made a new breed of "barrel chicken". At that time, it was very popular. In 1864, Ma Yongcen opened a new shop in Tongzhi three years. The shop was named "Jinling Religion - Ma Yuxing". The religion said that he believed in Islam. With the passage of time, today's barrel chicken has been familiar with the practice of large businesses in Kaifeng, and some stores barrel chicken is no worse than Ma Yuxing.

Mayuxing Barrel Chicken is well-known for its delicate production, strict selection of ingredients and unique taste. It has been sold for more than 100 years and is now cooked and managed by Mayuxing Chicken and Duck Store. On the basis of the original business, new products such as roast chicken, osmanthus fried duck, roast duck in oven, spiced beef, smoked fish and jerky have been added, which are well-known in the world and enjoy a good reputation in the ancient city.
