After a couple days in Xi’an eating their local delicacies, it got just a little too heavy for us and we’ve opted for something a little lighter and closer to home: Cantonese cuisine in Xi’an! WOW! Adventurous.
Here’s a short excerpt from the hotel’s website: “Authentic Cantonese cuisine ranging from traditional dim sum to freshly homemade noodles. Tian Xiang Ge also serves famous dishes from other regions of China and local Xian specialities.”
On a day when I’m not feeling particularly well (no thanks to BT Wings) and when you don’t really want to give too much thought on where to eat, I know I can count on Shangri-la for decent Cantonese cuisine.
A grand entrance to a small(ish) restaurant.
How much I write here is probably a reflection of how I was feeling at that moment.
All the dishes were pretty standard … nothing to go crazy over (to be fair, except for the lamb pot, everything else is pretty light), but definitely not bad. I just wish I could’ve enjoyed it a little more … damn wings!
Bill came up to about RMB 400 (including tea & 10% service charge).
I love the architecture though.
