Last Visit in August 2004
On this visit, I actually stayed in Zhongshan for one night (on a 2-day Macau+Zhongshan trip). This city has many delicious local delicacies such as this Shenwan Pineapple. The fruit is the size of your fist. You basically eat it like a hot dog on a stick!
This is the actual food stall sign "Fat Lady". It is located adjacent to the Doumen Bridge.
This is the "fat lady" vendor that sells these fist-sized pineapples. Each bag costs RMB10 and is absolutely delicious when eaten cold.
If you don't want to eat it right away, you can buy them in these ready-made boxes that contain these pineapples. Sorry, I don't know the price.
Hot pot with this particular fish is a local delicacy. Sorry, I have no idea what the name is for the fish. The bowl you see in front is the mixture of sauces that you dip the fish into. It has a nice parsley smell!
Here's a view from the hotel room (Kunlun Hotel). This hotel is quite nice with a pool in the back.
This is the hotel pool! It is very inviting on a hot and steamy day in Zhongshan. Summer temperatures may reach 35-36C!
This is one of many weird fish that can be sampled in Hengxin Restaurant. It is a large restaurant that caters to many styles of Cantonese cuisine. This fish is supposedly the fish I tried in the fish hot pot.
