Many....: Cheap Noodles
From reading through my journal I can tell you that I ate pretty cheap!! One of my lunches consisted of Noodles and Vegetables without meat and it cost a whopping price of 4 Mao and 1 Mao equalled US$.0019 cents at the exchange rate that I had so that meal cost less than US$.08 cents!! I'm sure it was in a small local place I didn't write down the name of the restaurant. But I can vaguely picture in my mind these places that I ate. I had another meal that included Noodles, Veggies and Meat for 2 Yuan (US$.36 cents) The meat must have added to the cost. My quote from my journal about that place..."It's more expensive than ordinary noodles but very delicous" ahhaha I can remember eating that meal with soaking wet feet and sharing a table with a local guy that kept spitting on the floor which sadly is/was a local custom.
Favorite Dish: I laughing right now as I click the Under $10 button!!! I could have had 125 meals of regular noodles with veggies for under $10!!

many: It makes you wonder
This guy was catching Cray fish and small fish in this sewer water! I wonder if he was selling it to the local restaurants!! Extra flavor it really makes you wonder sometimes. It might be better to not think about it and just enjoy the flavor. haha

the food stalls at the central square: Heinz-Memorial-Dinner
Right around the central square there are lots of food stalls with local food. We picked out one of them to celebrate a dinner, that my husband had wanted us to buy in his name.
This Heinz-Memorial-Dinner was one of our most wonderful dinners we had during the whole trip!
Favorite Dish: The food stall we picked out had lots of delitious things, that you could pick and they fried it for you.
We had mushrooms, beef, octopus, fish, cabbage, cauliflower, meatballs, broccoli and chicken - and we did order more than once, because it was soooooo delicious
A restaurant in Guilin with...
A restaurant in Guilin with 'la-Mien' pulling noodles. The guy doing the pulling noodles is the boss himself, I told him that I will put up this photo to advertise for him, so here it goes. This is also the street eating wild animals of dogs especially but I never tried. We try the Tang-Yuan hot sweet soup because of low temperature at about 4 celcius in December at night. Morning we ate the breakfast of fried oil-stick, porridge and soya bean soup.
Gourmets Coffee Cafe: Good Coffee!
The coffee is good and the owner is super nice. He's spent 12 years in New York and will help you with lots of good advice about Guilin. There's a large screen playing blues and other music DVDs.
Patio Café: Patio Café
We were not in Guilin long enough to dine out much. Our hotel stay included breakfast every day in the Patio Cafe. We also had a quick dinner there one night. It was a clean, easy eat!

Chinese "teriyaki & teppanyaki & shabushabu" combo
Favorite Dish: Chinese-style Teriyaki.
One can choose to have them cook in hot soup or barbecued. Taste great either way.
They are everywhere... this one I've forgotten!: Dare I say... dog meat?!!!
Favorite Dish: Dog meat (RMB 2 per rice bowl, ie. US$0.25).
In Guilin, one can find this dish almost everywhere in the city.
Dogs are not worth much here.
If you've craved for some Western food in China. Look no further and there's always a local McDonald's to satisfy your stomach. This one was a block away from the Hotel Universal Guilin.
