The name means “old man” in Chinese; here it’s for both the famous dish and the restaurant that created a stir when it opened 10 years ago. The eatery became known for serving ordinary Hangzhou dishes that were so good that a long line formed in front every day and anyone who didn’t book a seat in person before 3pm usually had to wait. It still attracts crowds.
Recommended dishes contain sauteed shrimp, fried shrimp and eel, sliced cold chicken, deep-fried hairtail fish and cold spiced duck.
