    Lao Bian Dumplings: Historical Dumplings

    by ellyse Updated Jan 19, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Xin1 Luo2 Cheng2: Korean Food

    by ellyse Updated Sep 11, 2007

    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.

    Plenty of appetisers and side dishes for free! Yummy pork, my favourite!

    Zhao4 Ji4 Lao3 Pu4: Best Manchu Food in Shenyang

    by ellyse Written Sep 11, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

  • Lombardi Fine Pizza & Grill: Lombardi Fine Pizza & Grill

    by mke1963 Written Jul 5, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

  • Everywhere: Eat on the Street!

    by Kim&Lily Written Nov 18, 2004

    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! .

    Yuanweizhai: WOW ! Shenyang Duck

    by urban4est Updated Aug 1, 2004

    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.

    Korean Barbeque: Time for some shaokao

    by ShenyangPeter Written Dec 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    yang rou = mutton
    zhu rou = pork
    niu rou = beef
    ji rou = chicken
    shou rou = lean meat
    fei rou = fatty meat
    shu cai = vegetables
    gou rou tang = dog soup (!)
    xian pi = the cheapest local beer
    xue hua = the famous Snow Beer!

    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.
