必胜客 - Pizza Hut: Ganzhou's Latest Addition
Kinda foolish going to a pizza restaurant and ordering something that's not pizza was the advice given to me by a fellow Brit on my way down to a post-meal drink at the bar area further down the river. I have eaten in Pizza Hut, China, a few times and am never blown away by the food or the service. Actually I prefer the copies, cheaper Chinese versions (Baker's Pizza or Babella's Pizza) so the novelty of having this large chain in Ganzhou was no great surprise.
Another downside is that it always seems like there is a waiting list to be seated. There is no waiting area and waiting fifteen minutes to be seated is unnecessary in an area with so many other restaurant choices. Some lego bricks or a beer would have come in handy. Alas, there was neither. Teeming with people on a Friday night, the service was poor, the beer (eventually) warm and my lasagne, although passable, only a few spoonfuls.
She was right. I should've ordered pizza, that's what Marco Polo would have done and all I do in China is moan about the lack of European bread and cheese. Anyhow it's there if you want it and I'm willing to give it another shot, during a less frantic period. Next time I would like to try out the upstairs seating area but that seems to be closed the majority of the time.
You will find Pizza Hut, China, is somewhere that the locals go to sample many plates of western food all at once, treat children and as couples on dates. I find that it suffers from image over content but it's another option for foreign tastes and the only chain in Ganzhou but abundant in larger cities.
