Service: not super duper, but it is bearable. I come here really for the food. Don’t expect much.
If you like Chinese street style food. You need to give this place a try. It is super cheap and super good. You see lots of regular foreign students coming here on a daily basis. The average wait time is about 30 mins to 1 hour. It is super popular among locals. It is a restaurant with bunch of skewers. Lots of meat and good portions of side dishes.
They don’t really speak English, so you may want to bring a Chinese speaking person to go with you. It is not a very visible restaurant. In fact, it don’t even look like a restaurant from the outside. They have blinds covering everything. Once you get in, you will feel as if you arrived to China. It’s not really a clean place for those who really care to eat at somewhere that is clean. It’s more of the type where there are table settings and your sitting on the streets eating street food; this is really what skewers are all about in China.
Picture of my daughter before we went to snack. She was a happy camper haha
you order these little lamb skewers, it is about 60 cents each. We usually get a bunch at once, because its super yummy and it is really bite size. You can go through many sticks without noticing that it is all finish! oh yea, it is really good with some beer as well!
The cucumber is marinated with sauce and garlic. Your mouth will smell stinky afterwards but it is super super yummy and crunchy! This comes out before the skewer, so you can nibble while waiting
They have these yum seafood. Juicy and piping hot when it comes out. BBQ style the Chinese way. It’s really good.
You also have lots of options to have dishes steam in aluminum foil then put no the grill. The steam will create water which leaves certain items better that way.
This place don’t have high reviews on yelp, but probably because they didn’t pay for advertisement! haha! but don’t let that stop you from going. It really is for the heart of soul. For those who really know and ate skewers in China before. This place is good for a midnight snack and for dinner. Most people take skewers as beer food but I can eat it anytime! IT IS THAT GOOD TO ME!
