Coming to Guangzhou, definitely must try Guangdong food.
万福楼 Wan Fu Lou
35, Yu Shan Road, Yuexiu District
(Junction of Beijing Road and Yu Shan Road)
Tel: +86 20 8318 6225
After missing Lian Xiang Lou 莲香楼, we didn’t have enough time to reach the shop with dinner and this shop crossed our journey. It looks “guangdong” and let’s see…
鸡汤窝蛋浸时蔬 Chicken soup with egg and vegetable (RMB30)
The chicken soup is good. It’s tasty enough 入味 and not too salty. If only the vegetable is changed to spinach 苋菜, it would be great!
面筋焖鱼腩 Fish Belly (RMB32)
Fried fish belly with 面筋 though a little salty. The fried fish is not that nice.
腊味煲仔饭 Preserved meat claypot rice (RMB38)
Disappointed. It only contains preserved fats and chinese sausage. The sauce added into the rice is not as fragrant as Lian Xiang Lou’s. It’s only so-so. Sigh~~~
蒜香乳鸽 Garlic pigeon (RMB38)
First bite – ugh~~! -_- A very heavy taste of garlic while the meat is not quite juicy. Another disappointment. The roasted and juicy taste of a pigeon has been covered by the garlic. First thought “Ordered the wrong thing”. 🙁
After this meal, I still recommend Lian Xiang Lou!
发哥 茶餐厅 Brother Fat
Hong Kong Cha Chan Teng in Guangzhou. It’s quite worth trying though.
1, Tao Jin North Road, Yuexiu District
Tel: +86 20 8358 7997
It’s rather delicious. I’m not sure because we’re hungry or it’s really nice. The wanton has quite a big crunchy prawn accompanied with QQ noodles. One pathetic thing is they only give 1 strand of vege. “-_-
Stir fried pork with bitter gourd
The meat is tender and juicy. I didn’t taste the bitter gourd as it’s not my fav but my brother in law loves it. So it must be good.
Roasted goose and roasted pork
Roasted goose is just so-so. I think Hong Kong’s goose is much more juicy. I just recommend the roasted pork. Crispy on the top and not hard to chew on the bottom. A more preferred choice of the two.
Long bean with garlic
Oh well, just a normal vege. Nothing very great about it but definitely not too bad. haha!
We tried some of their dim sum too but if you want to try more food, save your tummy space for other food. Dim sum are nicer in Hong Kong.
You can find Hunan food at many places in Guangzhou. You must love spicy food or willing to take the challenge to try it. I recommend a dish that is very nice. Once you start, you can’t stop.
Stir fried spicy frog 香辣田鸡 (RMB59)
It’s spiciness builds up fire in your body but it’s delicious. The frog is Q and very covered with the spicy sauce. If you’re not good with spicy food, this dish will make you cry cause you can’t stop eating!
