First, it was pretty confusing getting there. I was on Huacheng road (Lu) and not on Huacheng Avenue (Dadao), pretty common mistake when in China, I suppose. So, once on Huacheng Avenue search for building no 16, it has a huge restaurant (Mao's Bay or something) and VLife (organic and bio restaurant and products). Right next to VLife is a side street, take that one and you arrive at Mc Cawleys which is situated in the back of the building. It looks pretty big from outside, didn't get to see much since i was seated on the terrace. And they have free wifi!
Ok, so about the place. First, the service: I don't know why so many people complained about it, I got seated, had my order taken and my food and drinks on the table in less than 15 min. Plus, no mistakes in the order. Second, the food: it was great, simple, but one who has been many times in China knows that even the the most simple dished can go wrong due to a Chinese chef :). So, the fajitas (trio of beef, chicken and shrimps) were excellent and came withwarm tortillas, guacamole, sour cream and salsa, the potato skins with cheese and bacon were crispy and came with salsa and sour cream and the lime frozen margarita perfect.
The price? 177 rmb for the fajitas, potato skins and margarita. there must have been some special prices that i didn't pay attention to, maybe half price margarita, because the bill was lower than i expected. Ok, it;s not cheap, but since everything was so good, i think the price was more than fair.
Would i come back? Of course, especially because the food in the menu sounded delicious, if everything else is as good as what i've ordered i think i may have just found my favorite place in Guangzhou
