Dongyang Restaurant, Yile Branch/岽阳餐馆, 益乐店
Add New Venue

Now many years ago, our editor used to live in Dongyang, so it was with great trepidation that he even went near this place. When he used to live there, the factory manager used to always feed him the local specialty, which was this red fermented tofu paste served on a corn chip, and he couldn't refuse. Now whenever someone mentions Dongyang food he gets flashbacks to that factory canteen, and it chills him to his very core. So after dragging him from the car kicking and screaming, we finally got him to sit behind the table of this newly-opened Dongyang place only after reassuring him that his boss was no longer there, and that no matter how much a waiter or waitress recommended those local special chips, that we wouldn't order them. So we took care when ordering and basically stuck to the meat. The first thing to be served were the delicious Braised Pork and Steamed Buns 瓦罐肉 (35RMB). They took the ice off our editor's chopsticks. Second came the Deep Fried Pork and Egg Sheets 土灶肉 (28RMB), which were like Dongyang-style mini fajitas also simply wonderful. Next we had the Stir Fried Vegetables and Sweet Potato Vermicelli 辣炒地瓜粉丝 (16RMB) and then the Stir Fried Vegetables and Broad Beans 手捏菜 (12RMB), and though they weren't as impressive as the first two dishes, they were edible, to say the least. Finally came the only thing that was a bit disappointing and that was the Mutton Skewers 阿公羊肉串 (22RMB), which looked as if they had been bought from a supermarket and they just threw some spice on them. Our meal for four came to 178RMB, including some soft drinks, and parking is available right in front of the restaurant. Picture menu available.
