Visit to a Chinese restaurant

It's likely you've eaten 'Chinese' food from the West and loved it, but Western Chinese food doesn't even compare to genuine Chinese food made from within China itself.

My roommates and I visited a Chinese restaurant yesterday that's considered 'expensive' in comparison to other restaurants in China, but it still only ended up costing us around 75 RMB ($12) each for a delicious meal and drinks.

Outside the restaurant

As you can see, it's a great looking restaurant, which is the perfect mix of both a traditional and a modern style.

As you can see above, it's a great looking traditional restaurant.

When you get seated, expect to be welcomed by all the staff, who see it as an opportunity to test their English, while it's an equal opportunity for you to test your Chinese!

You'll immediately be given a kettle full of tea, without ordering it. Not only is this for drinking, this is also for the cleaning routine of your plate, cup, bowl and chopsticks. This is done by pouring the boiling tea onto each, and effectively washing them.

The amazing food

All the attempts at saying which food we wanted in Chinese were most definitely worth it, for the amazing meal we had!
