This small Chiu Chow restaurant turned out to be one of the highlights of our little sojourn across the border. Aside from having some of the best food around, it’s relaxed, cheap, friendly, and you’ll be the only clueless outsider there to spoil the vibe.
Situated among the bustling throng of seafood stalls on Jiabin Xi Lu, the place is a major local favorite and packs in a full crowd while still managing to feel spacious - the four of us sat down to a table easily sufficient for eight.
First on our list of orders were three big bottles of Snow - a tame but reliable mainland choice, and the only beer in the house. Next up was the excellent roasted eggplant stuffed with ginger and chili, specially couriered in from a stall next door. Our local friend had been raving about it all day, and it was just as good as she’d made it out to be. Then came the scallops with great rice noodles, followed by some fantastic pork ribs wrapped individually in little paper bags and steamed. Last, crispy, deep-fried prawns that went down like a charm, shell and all.
Both the meal and the service were first rate and indeed, by local standards, the staff were almost eerily kind: when a colleague accidentally left his bag of recently purchased goods behind, they came running out after us to return it. Truly erratic behavior in Shenzhen.
