Good thing our other favourite dish beef in chili was excellent. Numbingly spicy it had all the right flavours.
Mandarin fish with pine nuts and we have yet to figure out what Mandarin fish is. The fish was small and not very fleshy but we liked the sauce. The batter was also very thin and for the little meat we got it was very nice indeed.
Some kind of sprouts stir-fry.
Shanghai fried noodles. Very tasty but sinfully oily.
Lunch for 2 came to RMB450 with the fish dish being RMB190. A bit pricey and perhaps it's time to explore the local restaurants in the city.
