A good Guangdong-style restaurant franchise in China, this instance is near Shanghai’s People Square.
Dishes are around 20-40 yuans. The tofu with salty (duck) eggs, 咸蛋滑豆腐 (xiandan hua doufu), the duck eggs provide a very original taste and an interesting grainy texture:
A bit more conventional, the sautéed vegetables, 新旺炒素 (xinwang chaosu) had a very light taste and, I thought, were a bit undercooked, but I guess it’s the way they’re supposed to be:
An interesting variant over the rice soup (粥, zhou) is their 皮蛋瘦肉粥 (pidan shourou zhou), the soup itself is really well cooked, and contains bits of “hundred years” eggs and some pork:
Last, their 椒盐黄鱼 (jiaoyan huangyu), fish — no idea what the English name is — cooked in a very simple manner, fried with salt and pepper:
Overall, I think it’s a really good choice if you like this kind of cuisine, though I usually prefer dishes with a stronger taste (like Sichuan cuisine).
