    Hong Xiang Lu E: Hebei & Henan Food

    by Lemoncactus Written Aug 3, 2006

    Splendid looking restaurant with big glass windows and glass stairs inside. Clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly. All menus in Chinese but there are pictures. The staff don't speak English. The food here is great and most of the dishes come from Hebei and Henan Provinces.

    Favorite Dish: There's a great dish of lamb in red sauce named after Chairman Mao (don't let that influence you, it's delicious).

    Europaer: Western Food in Benxi

    by Lemoncactus Written Aug 3, 2006

    Mmmm, what a shame there's no category for Chinese Western food... this is what this place is. To be honest it's overpriced and not very good, but I'm not sure of any other place where you can buy a pizza or pasta dish in Benxi. [That's not entirely true, one of the greasy fast-food places here sells very greasy pizzas...] The menu is in English and Chinese with pictures (another rarity). Usually the only place in town where you've a chance of seeing another Westerner eating. Nice atmosphere, has English music (sometimes the Carpenters, it's true!) and upstairs and downstairs seating, some of the staff speak English and all are friendly.

    Favorite Dish: Actually love their hot chocolate milk drink, and the pizza is OK.... especially when you haven't eaten one for a year. Also they do a nice refreshing fruit salad but it does have a savory dressing on it.

    ChongQing Hong: Cheap & Quiet Hotpot Place

    by Lemoncactus Written Aug 2, 2006

    I like this place because it's small, quiet and relaxed but still keeps itself clean. The staff are polite and friendly though there's no English spoken... this IS Benxi! The food is great. Hotpot consists of a bowl of boiling hot water (flavoured with various herbs and spices). You order dishes of meat, seafood, vegetables, tofu and egg which are brought to the table raw. You place the food into the water to cook. Best when 2 people or more are dining.

    Favorite Dish: Some good things to order for hotpot are: lamb, chickens eggs, tofu, noodles and mushrooms.
