阿勇鲁肉饭 (Ah Yong Braised Meat Rice) – Shanghai, China

Advertisements

Dunno why they are using this 鲁 instead of 卤… nevertheless, I reckon they meant the same ‘braised‘ meaning. This place was recommended by my driver when I was working in Shanghai. I tried it the first time when he packed for me during one of the lunches in office. I was like “WHAO!” and this is really a lot better than most of the 鲁肉饭 that I’ve tried. Yes this restaurant can really give the Taiwanese 鲁肉饭s a run for their money! So I visited on one of the evenings. They have other dishes which apparently tasted pretty good as well!

Bill and address

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Really awesome. I’m trying to press my craves down as I’m writing this…

Portion: Below average. The bowl of rice is really little that’s why I ordered the big bowl.

Service: Quite ok. Maybe because of my size… Size does matter in China haha…

Ambience: Average. Wooden chairs and people smoking inside. Can’t wait for them to implement bans for smoking in aircon places like in Guangzhou!

Price: RMB17 for a set of Braise Meat Rice with a slice of braised pork belly and egg. Super cheap!

RTE: Yes!

仁信老铺 @ Guangzhou, China

Another regular dessert place I always try to go to whenever in Guangzhou. This place boast their award winning 双皮奶 as well as their 姜撞奶. But other than their many traditional desserts, they have meals like noodles and steam rice as well. They also deliver to anywhere within the vicinity of Haizhu Square. So if you’re staying at any hotels within this area, you can give them a call and order in to save you to hassle of squeezing with the crowd.

Very crowded all the time...
Wan Ton Noodles with Oyster Sauce. Noodles cooked to perfection and texture is springy... only thing is, it has a very strong yeast smell. RMB$12
Beef Brisket Noodles RMB$13
Braised wings for RMB$10 for 2pcs
Ginger Vinegar Pork Leg RMB$15. Famous for this as well
Fried Milk RMB$8... Milk with flour and deep fried. Kids love this.
Ginger Bang Milk (Jiang Zhuang Nai) If you're having a cold, ask them to add more ginger syrup
