I ever eat that amazing french food in a foreign country, they have very good filet steak, if you like duch you should chose the duck breast, its serve with orange sauce and the chocolate cake good as hell. The atmosphere is romantic and you can be serve in european way. If you go there take your time and apreciate the moment.
This weekend from the 27th april 2012 to the 29th april 2012, the restaurant promote the place with 20% discount on the restaurant menu and the bar menu. Let's try it
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the terrine and the duck breast its hard to say because the beef filet is gorgeous too. For dessert for sure the chocolate cake.
Baofa Yuan Resturant was found in 1909, but the most famous things here is not this ancient name. There are four famous dishes had been praised highly by Zhang Xueliang, the post ruler of Manchuria.
Favorite Dish: the photos of Four dishes
With a history going strong for almost 2 centuries now, Lao3 Bian1 Jiao3 Zi Guan3 has some of the BEST dumplings in Shenyang. The most convenient outlet should be the one at Zhong Jie.
Favorite Dish: The ultimate must-try is bing1 hua1 jian1 jiao3 which's a plate of pan-fried dumplings linked together by sugar strands that look like snowflakes, the reason for the name of the dish. (Bing1 hua1 = snow flower; jian1 jiao3 = pan-fried dumplings.) A plate was quite enough for 2 of us to share.
The most traditional dumplings are the bian3 xian4 jiao3 zi.
Xita Jie is, as stated in the Lonely Planet China, a haven for Korean food. Take a stroll on that street and you could dream that you've been teleported to Korea.
This's a good one, though rather expensive.
There's a wide variety of appetisers and side dishes provided for free.
If you're looking for cheaper, there's a Korean BBQ joint at the mouth of Xita Jie. Don't remember the name of the shop already but it's pretty big (2 floors), bright and clean. Be sure to try the fatty pork (wu3 hua1 rou4)!
Favorite Dish: The seafood hotpot is good, and so is the BBQ fatty pork (wu3 hua1 rou4). The servers will BBQ the meat for you on request.
This's an EXCELLENT place to go for Manchu food. It's a little difficult to find but well worth the effort.
The decor is quite interesting, with traditional benches and tables, and pictures of Qing dynasty royalty on the walls.
The menu's unfortunately all in English but there're some photos to aid you. Average expenditure per person is probably around 50-80 RMB depending on how many people you have and what dishes you order -- it's better to have a bigger group eating.
Favorite Dish: Here're some of my recommendations.
- zu3 chuan2 mi4 jue2 bian2 kou3 yu2 (48 RMB): A traditional fish dish made with some secret recipe, served in a fish-shaped dish.
- zu3 chuan2 men1 nong2 jia1 ji1 (25 RMB/half chicken): A traditional farmer's chicken cold dish.
- qi2 ren2 wan3 xia1 (28 RMB): An inventive Manchu-style bowl of prawns in spicy chilli oil.
- dou4 lao4 fan4 (3 RMB/bowl): Purple-coloured rice mixed with beans, really tasty!
Yes, it just has to be Italian with a curious name like that! Rarely have I seen the words "fine" and "pizza" in such close proximity, but there you have it.
This quaint, tiny restaurant is on the 3rd floor of the Intercontinental Hotel, and has a good reputation with locals and expatriates alike.
It is very dark, lit by candles and the enthusiasm of the waiting staff; the cosiness of the place is as rare in China as the name.
The meal was very expensive, with a two course meal with drinks coming to over 200 kuai - a first for me outside Beijing or Shanghai!
Favorite Dish: Good, slightly rustic Italian fare, and plenty to choose from other than pizzas, thank goodness!
The wine list contains some very mediocre French wines at very high prices, as is common throughout China where there are sufficient clueless snobs who have no idea about wine, to keep shifting poor quality wine from Europe here.
You know, my husband is Chinese and he is always chastising me for eating from street vendors...he says they are dirty, food is questionable, etc. BUT...The night we ate at the EXPENSIVE Pauliner Brewhouse in the hotel was a total let down compared to the delicious food on the street!
Favorite Dish: Roasted hazelnuts were delicious, as was the barbeque. Roasted peppers and potatoes in brown sauce were so good on chilly nights. I lived in Guangzhou for years, but still love Dongbei (northeastern) food the most! .
The restaurant has a main dinning room and private party rooms. It is nicely decorated and displays early 20th century Shenyang pictures.
Favorite Dish: Everything we ordered was great. The Duck sliced and served with rice skins to wrap it was better than Peking Duck because the wrap didn't hide the duck flavor like the steamed bread served with Peking Duck.
Try the stuffed jujube it satisfies the child in you. A special sweet you wont forget.
it is the oldest jiaozi restuarant in china about 170 years history. it is absolutely the oldest and best jiaozi resturant.
the stuffing is very tasteful and shape is beautiful.
havn't ate bian jia jiao zi, means you never eat jiao zi.
Favorite Dish: 100 years stuffing jiaozi.
the oldest shenyang resturant with about 100 years history.
old style building and decoration. it's like a museum inside.
very special northeast dish
Favorite Dish: shenyang duck, beijing duck's chef had student move to shenyang, then created shenyang duck. less fat than beijing duck.
duck bone soup
fried duck bone
su yu, very good taste salty fish
pi dong, nice pig skin gels
jian jiao tu dou si, hot pepper and potato
These dishes are taken from menus in Shenyang, China. Not all Chinese restaurants throughout China have all of these dishes, of course, but in the Northeast these are very typical. Useful Chinese-English menus can be tough to find, so enjoy.

Favorite Dish: I have had these dishes in Shenyang restaurants. Not all of these dishes are available in other parts of China, and some dishes found elsewhere are not available here.
Chinese food is absolutely fantastic in flavors, ingredients, and variety. Restaurants prepare all the wonderful dishes at a very reasonable price.
I don't know how "Korean" they are, but the Korean barbeques in Shenyang are fantastic! The idea is you sit around a table and grill all sorts of meat, veggies and seafood while drinking the local brew. You can also order regular Chinese and Korean dishes to accompany the meat. (These places are perfect for people on the Atkins diet...)
They are best for groups of 4-8, though groups of 2-3 can also work. They are a little more expensive than the average restaurant, but not terribly pricy (less than 40 kuai per person unless you buy expensive drinks).
Korean barbeques are ubiquitous, so you won't have to look hard to find them. Just keep your eye out for Korean writing on signs above restaurants. One note of caution: I have yet to see an English menu at a barbeque.

crowd of visitors gather around to have their photos taken with the seven-ton Maitreya (Laughing) Buddha emerald statue in Shenyang, China. Shenyang can soon boast of having the world's largest emerald Buddha statue, which took one year and 12 million yuan (US $1.4 million) for the country's 11 leading jade carvers to make the 2 m high (six foot-six-inch) figure, which has received a certificate from the Shanghai office of the Guinness Book of Records testifying that it is the biggest of its kind in the world.
