Earning a string of culinary awards since it opened in 1936, this legedary place is one of the best-known restaurants in town. The setting is classic Canton, with flower-filled courtyards surrounded by dining rooms of various sizes. The food is some of the finest in the city, with house specialties like "Eight Treasures," a mix of poultry, pork, and mushrooms served in a bowl made of melon. Other Cantonese dishes include duck feet stuffed with shrimp, roasted goose, and
of course, dim sum. Meals can be cheap or very expensive, depending on how exotic your tastes are.
2 Wenchang Nan Lu, Guangzhou, 510140, China

An old traditional restaurant with about 6 brances in Guangzhou. Locals go there for Tim Sum. The best chef of old have moved on. Still it is good to spend an afternoon drinking tea and wondering if you can take in one more Siew Mai. The Wenchang Lu branch is the best.
