宫廷月亮虾饼 (Prawn Cakes) – Xiamen, Guangdong, China


This is a famous franchise chain of street food which you can see in tourist spots in Xiamen. I went to the one at Zhongshang Lu since I wanted to visit there to check out this famous walking street of Xiamen. 宫廷 means ‘Palace’ in Chinese, makes me wonder sometimes if this snack was an official imperial dish that was served to the royalties.

Friendly staff who serve girls better than same gender.
Prawn Cakes – It’s prawn cake as it is. Nothing special. It taste good just like anything that is served hot.

Rating: 4/5.

Taste: 4/5. Everything is made to order. Hence it’s served hot all the time. They have the BBQ squid and another prawn cutlet which I didn’t try. Too full!

Portion: 4/5. 

Service: Girls gets better service.

Ambience: N/A. Stand by the side and eat!

Price: RMB$15. Can check out for online discount groupons for RMB$10 per piece.

RTE: Maybe, if I have stomach space.
