This is a kind of spcial sock in China. Normally it is made by hawkthorns. Outside the Hawkthorns is sugar candy. When you eat, you can feel sour and sweet at the same time. Sounds spcial, isn't it?
Now there are many fruits instead of Hawkthorns, like strawberry, banana, grape,yam( this is my favourite), Chinese goosebeery... many kinds of if u can image ^o^
Favorite Dish: Being a big fan of icecream I can say that it was the sweetes icecream I've ever tasted. I just have no words to discribe it's taste. There are icecream with strawberry, kiwi, oranges, melon, chocolaste and many many others. I've tasted most of them and all of them were the best.

It is a cantonese restaurant on the 4th floor. It has a few sections - One section for steamboat, one section for KTV, one section for cooked food.
There are many types of seafood which I have not seen before. Very interesting...
Favorite Dish: The picture shows the seafood that I liked most from this restaurant. I also like the mushroom vegetables.
This chain restaurant seems to be quite popular. I went to the 298th branch in Dalian. There are lotsa waiter and waitresses to serve you. You can choose between steamboat (huo guo) or ala carte (chao chai).
Favorite Dish: We tried the "qing tang" steamboat which is very nice. You can order vegetables, meat, seafood for the steamboat. And there are a few types of broth to choose from. The "yang rou" (lamb) is superb! The lamb are sliced thinly and cooked in the tasty boiling water in front of you, and the lamb are said to be imported from "nei meng" (Inner Mongolia). yummy... The thinly sliced lamb is juicy, tender and simply delicious.
Perhaps we will go there again to try the " ri ben fei niu rou" (Japanese fatty beef) - sounds and looks like Kobe beef to me.
For the soup, they also have "ma la tang" (super spicy soup). I dare not try it just in case too spicy for my tongue!
I like steamboat as I can cook whatever I want myself. Just add whatever you like into the boiling broth and then fishing it out from the broth, if you can find it. ;-)
Was held from 29 July to 9 August. I'm not a big fan of beer but still it was so interesting to visit that fastival .it was held on Xinghai Bay Square There were presented different sorts of beer from national Chinese beer (very cheep and very tasty) to Japanese Asahi, Mexican Corona, Heineken and many many others. Also there was presented a natinal Chinese food as an aaperetive to beer (from meet to seafoods).
One thing I liked most of all!!! It's a castle built of bottles of Heineken beer.
You can get to Xinghai Bay Square on a taxi. It will cost you over 10 -15 þàíåé if you'll take a taxi in the center of Dalian!
Xinghai Bay Square, August 2004
Fine Spanish restaurant offering from Tapas as appetizers up to an original Paella, accompanied by Spanish wines or a fruity sangria... splendid!
We have begun with some tapas, ending up with a fantastic vegetarian Paella.
Cozy ambience, fine latin music complete the atmosphere.
Very much recommended!
This is just a general tip because in Dalian there are many good Seafood restaurant. The problem, I am no expert so I just tell you what others said.
Before I went to Dalian I didnt eat seafood except fish. I am still no fan of it but if you like to eat seafood you should try it in Dalian.
I will try to get the name and the address of the Seafood restaurant as soon as possible.
This is an all you can eat Brazilian style BBQ restaurant. They brew six different kinds of beer and the service is great. They bring food to your table until you have to say stop!!
Favorite Dish: Veal and fried banana and everything else
It is really great to find the street vendors in this city, but it so pity I am not dare enough to try it. Must think twice maybe. Somebody who ever try how it tastes, then could be great to have news for their experience. mmm. yummy ... the local people said. until today, after back home whenever I see this picture my stomach becomes pain.
This is a place I recommend only if you've traveling in China for a long time and miss Western food or if you want to eat at an American style coffee shop. It used to be place to go when I wanted a good cup of coffee but now that Starbucks is in town, I'm not going so often.
They have a very nice breakfast buffet on weekends and menu in English.
Favorite Dish: I go there for the coffee and sandwiches
The restaurant is original from Si Chuan province. All the waiters and cooks are from Si Chuan.
The soup is very spcial, it is called mandarin duck soup. The red part is really spicy. You can put lamp, beef, fish or many kind of vegetables inside. It tastes very delicious.
Actually this is a kind of snack from South China. There is a beautiful story about Guo Qiao Mi Xian.
Once in Yun Nan provice, there is a pretty girl loves a poor scholar. The girl's family is against she and the poor scholar. But the girl still loves the poor scholar and insists on bringing meal to him. One day, when she passed the bridge, she slipped up and then vegetables and meat on her hand just slipped into the boiled noddle pot. Then the girl tasted and thought very delicious. After that, this kind of noddle is call Guo Qiao Mi Xian. Guo Qiao means 'pass a bridge'. Mi Xian means ' rice noddle'.
Normally, Huo Guo soup is divided into two parts: normal soup and spicy soup. So this kind of Huo Guo is also called mandarin duck Huo Guo.
You can put vegetables, beef, lamb, seafood, fish, bean curd, noddle... anything you like into the soup. Then put some seasoning... It tastes wondelful!
