The best place to taste the best "Xiao Long Bao" - a dim sum - in the world
Favorite Dish: Fantastic! much better than those sold in Shanghai and other surrounding cities.
However, the prices are very expensive: 2 euro for 4 little "xiao long bao": a small deal for guys earning more than 3000 euro / month but a breathtaking one for local people.
Situated a looooooong way from anywhere, on the bank of Tai Lake, it'll be pretty difficult to get here without a expensive taxi ride, and even more problematic to get out! We walked for ages on the main road looking for the bus that was supposed to be, but we only found a bus stop in the wrong direction and no buses in sight! In the end we chanced upon a taxi, thankfully, or we'd probably still be walking till dinnertime.
Favorite Dish: The restaurant looks an unlikely candidate for tasty food, but we were pleasantly surprised.
We ordered stewed egg with a local freshwater fish (called weng1 gong1 yu2 dun4 dan4), fish head casserole (yu2 tou2 bao3), scalded freshwater shrimp (bai2 zhuo2 xia1) and red-braised pork (hong2 shao1 rou4). All these are recommended specialties of the restaurant so you shouldn't go wrong ordering those. :)
