Fodor's Review

Sour fish soup, Guiyang's signature dish, is the specialty at this venerated local joint. Choose a fish from the tanks, select your other ingredients, and mix your own sauce. The soup—an import from the city of Kaili—and the fish will then be cooked at your table. If it's too spicy, remember that a bit of white rice—not water—is one good method for dousing culinary flames. There are no reservations, so expect to have to wait in line a bit on weekends or holidays. There's another branch on nearby Shengfu Bei Jie.
