    several in downtown area - Furong quarter: Coffee bars in Changsha

    by macaronald Written Dec 16, 2010

    in the few coffee houses in downtown Changsha you can order a variety of coffee brands. Optionally you can order small snacks such as cookies, cake, dougnuts, pie or candy.
    Since coffee is considered a "rich" product in most areas of China, where the majority enjoy drinking tea, the quality of coffee is probably best in the restaurants.

    The coffee is made from imported or conservated beans, then mashed, mixed and made to coffee. Optionally you can add a flavour to it as you could do at Starbucks. It is fortunate that in the coffee bars you can order the goods by English names as well as Chinese.

    To find them: just look for small stores in main streets or alleys with coffee signs (either English or Ka-fei in Chinese). You'll find they are much more relaxed of a bar then any other bar you find in the city!

    American Chain Restaurants: Walking Street Restaurants

    by apuleuis Written Jan 1, 2010

    Near the downtown Walking Street there is a large variety of American restaurants. We have McDonalds & KFC (of course). There is also Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Subway, Dairy Queen, Daylight Donuts and Haagen-dazs. Sadly there is still no Starbucks though.

    This is an American-run coffee shop. The prices are decent and they have a selection of desserts like banana bread, brownies and even apple pie on Saturdays. Friday nights have live music. They are open 2-10pm Monday - Saturday.

    Favorite Dish: I like the chai and the hot chocolate best.

    Fire Palace: stinky tofu

    by apuleuis Written Jan 3, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Huogongdian

    I liked the style of this restaurant. The waiters come around with carts and you take what you want. This is handy for me, since I can't read a menu. I was a little concerned because I was paying and was with two friends and so much looked good that we ended up taking a lot of dishes. But when the final bill came it was 65 RMB, or about $10. it looked like a more expensive restaurant than that.

    Favorite Dish: The stinky tofu (it has to be ordered off the menu). I also liked the corn soup.

    Huogongdian - Fire Palace: Authentic Changsha Tastes!

    Huogongdian  - Fire Palace Restaurant
    1 more image

    Don't pass up the opportunity to eat at Huogongdian if at all possible. This 200+ year old complex was once a temple where people made offerings to the fire gods.

    If you have yet to try Smelly tofu, this restaurant serves some of the best. Most foreigners shy away from this dish upon seeing it and smelling it, but it really is quite delicious. And, if you can't quite bring yourself to try it, the restaurant has dozens of other dishes to dine on.

    The main restaurant and snack shops fill up quickly. I suggest an early dinner here before a leisurely walk through the surrounding neighborhoods.

    Mona Lisa: Good Food, Fun Atmosphere

    by kpeng Written Jul 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have eaten at the Mona Lisa in Changsha on several occasions and highly recommend.

    Friends tell me that it is a "chain restaurant" in several cities in China, somewhat like "TGI Fridays" in the US.

    The decor is an eclectic collection of American Old West, but it is a fun and interesting place to enjoy local food.

    The restaurant also serves Western food, including ice cream. Great choice for groups who have some in the group wanting local food and others wanting western food.

    Favorite Dish: Steamed Pumpkin

    Main Entrance

    This restaurant holds 5,000 people! It is split into multiple rooms, so each one doesn't really seem any different than a regular restaurant. Cool to say you went there though.

    KFC in Changsha

    I didn't try this fast food joint, but it seems KFC is more popular than McDonald's. KFC branches are found quite easily.

    Changsha Restaurant

    Hunan is famous for its spicy food. The soup is even spicy as they put a lot of black pepper into their pork shank soup! The stewed pork has more fat than the actual meat.
