A friend invited me to eat at one of these small neighbourhood restaurants that always seem to do local food the best. I didn't do the ordering, so the first thing that landed on the table was this dish of pig ears (猪耳朵). I thought they were fantastic, but my table companions judged them a bit too sweet:
One useful way of gauging a kitchen is by the freshness of their greens, and the care with which they are prepared and presented. The restaurant did a very nice job with this plate of you cai:
I didn't catch the name of this fish dish, but it was done well - good, tender fish in spicy broth.
'Eat-by-hand' ribs (手撕排骨) is a dish that we are seeing on more and more menus lately. It's delicious, and spicy, and usually mixed with potatoes, dry pot style.
We also wanted to order twice cooked potatoes - 回锅土豆.
Name in Chinese: 佳味餐馆

I have a picture menu label on this post, but only the main dishes were illustrated.
