A side track to Guangzhou for a day. A little walk and a lot more food… ^_^
Food street Restaurant at China Hotel, a Marriott Hotel （中國大酒店食街）
This is one of the traditional environment restaurant but it is in a hotel. I thought it would be expensive but not all food.
122 Liuhua Road，China Hotel
Their famous dishes are…
Tengzai Porridge （荔湾艇仔粥）
I thought this porridge would be dull and plain but it consists of a lot of ingredients such as fish maw, sotong, fish slices, peanuts, eggs, pork meat and a weird piece of things (below) that is also nice to eat. A big bowl of porridge for RMB35.
This weird thing tastes like some underwater sea sponge. It has many small dots on it but it’s crispy and bland in nicely with the porridge.
Prawn wanton noodles （鲜虾云吞面）
This is a very big bowl of wanton noodles. The wanton is also rather big with quite nice.
We also ordered…
Roasted porks （烧肉，乳猪，叉烧）
The siew yuk skin and yu ju skin are crispy and it’s delicious. The char siew is not the charcoal-roasted type but it has a slight burned smell that I like.
Steamed minced pork （顺德蒸肉饼）
This is a very different steamed minced pork that I have ever eaten. The pork is not very minced. It will be nice to eat with white rice or porridge. Otherwise, it will be too salty to be eaten on its own.
Lian Xiang Lou Restaurant （莲香楼）
This one of the famous restaurant which is more than 100 years old brand in Guangzhou for its dim sum and pastries.
|Night and Day
Stir-fried vegetables in wooden basin （木盆炒粗斋）
The glass noodle is very nice with the vegetables. If the dish would have more glass noodle, only this dish would be enough for my dinner.
Roasted pigeon （红烧乳鸽皇）
This pigeon is less salty and the meat is not dry. I love this dish more than roasted goose. I would have more if I’m not so full.
Preserved meat claypot rice（腊味煲仔饭）
It has been a very long time since I have eaten preserved meat. This is a very delicious nice. I will want to come back for this! Yummy~~!
Glutinous rice 八宝糯米饭
I expected it to be steamed glutinous chicken 糯米鸡 but it’s lotus leaf glutinous rice 荷叶饭. It contains ingredients such as salted egg yolk, pork, and lap cheong.
Radish cake 家乡萝卜糕
It’s a very soft radish cake with a little radish taste. I think it’s a little oily but actually all radish cakes are oily.
Durian flaky pastry 泰国榴莲酥
is a dish that you would like to eat it last. The flaky pastry is crispy and the durian taste is not very strong but it will still spoilt your taste bud. However, I think that there is a very light oily taste 一点点臭油味.
Prawn dumpling 莲香虾饺皇
Oh well, just normal.
Salted bun 凤凰流沙包
This is good! It melts but it dries off easily if you don’t eat it immediately. It has a stronger salted egg taste.
Wren egg siew mai 鹩蛋蒸烧卖
This is very special. It’s a totally different type of siew mai. It’s a nice try but not a dish that I will keep going back for.
Four kinds vermicelli roll 四式蒸肠粉
First time eating this. Four kinds would include beef, prawn, char siew and pork slices. The beef is not that nice with the roll. The char siew and pork slices is in one roll but it’s just so-so. The prawn roll taste the best among the rolls.
Char siew tart 金牌叉烧挞
Char siew is sweet and tart is salty and soft. A mixed is saltily sweet tart. Nice!
