Restaurant details
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Local Chinese friends brought us here. It is near the Bell Tower. I liked it much more than my wife. I found the Lotus roots surprising good. I poured it's hot sauce onto my noddles. Delicious. We had fried pork balls with black mushrooms. Excellent. We sat in a booth that was a frame for an ancient bed. Pretty cool. Otherwise chairs and benches are without frills. The restaurant is loaded with locals. We were the only Westerners there. I believe there are other restaurants with this name. I felt as if I had a real Chinese dinner experience with no trace of tourist commercialism, yet the food was very edible and good.
