Add:468 Dongchang Rd
Ambience: Casual. Tables a little shabby. There's a big clay vat at the front door. Crowded on weekends.
Who to invite: Friends to hang out with
Pros: Many dishes are salty and spicy, favored by those who like heavy taste. Soup comes and large and small portions.
Cons: Many dishes are very salty. Noisy, slow service.
Recommended: Pork rib soup with slicked lotus root has a balance of fat and freshness. It's not greasy.
Don't order: Three-cup chicken doesn't contain enough chicken. Fried eggplant is cooked in too much flour and is too oily, at least on our visit.
Drinks: Tea and alcoholic beverages.
Cost: 60 yuan per person
