We’ve been by this place a million times, and have wondered how they can have been in business for so long, so one afternoon last month, we gathered the troops to take a gander. Though the parking lot was practically full, it was not nearly big enough to give us an indication of how many people were going to be in this spot having lunch. It was packed, and we quickly understood why as soon as we opened the menu. With some dishes as cheap as 5RMB, it’s no wonder why this spot nestled next to the swimming pool gets so many people. The place was turning tables like it was nobody’s business. Okay, and the food wasn’t bad either. It’ was actually much better than we thought it was going to be. We started our meal with a Special Boiled Chicken 特色碳烤鸡 (40RMB) which was a whole chicken with meat literally falling off the bone. The dark meat was to die for. Then we had Crispy Pork Served with Chips and Mayonnaise 响铃脆香肉 (15RMB), and as long as you can get over the fact that the chips they use as a base for the pork are Pringles, then you’ll realize how delicious this dish can be. It was the surprise hit of the afternoon. Of course, the “head” of our table had to order something spicy, so we got the Spicy Fish and Bean Sprouts 沸腾鱼片 (30RMB), and it did the trick if it was a bit too “bland”. We rounded out the meal with an order of Eggplant Cooked in the Special Sauce and Poached Egg 铁板烧汁茄子 (sic.), (15RMB), and though it didn’t look that great when it came out, in the end, it wasn’t bad at all. Add on two bottles of Apple Juice (18RMB) and you’ll get our 136RMB bill. Where else in town can you feed three hungry people for under 50RMB a head? English menu with pictures, and parking are all available. It’s a perfect spot when you don’t want to wait on the line at Grandma’s, and don’t want to dent the wallet.
