Eat. Travel. Eat!

This is a unusual place! Haven't noticed it before even though we visit this area almost every week or so.

It is sad that the meats were not good! They look very juicy and flavorful in the photo :).

Guo Ba Cai sound really awesome. What are the chances of you and the missus moving to the SGV?

Hi ETE - The Yang Rou Chuan, was barely, barely mediocre, and the lamb chops horrible. Too much salt, tough as heck. This shop is easy to miss.

Hi G - The fermented flavor of the Guo Ba Cai might throw you. It is simple peasant fare, but for some reason I really enjoy it. I don't know if you already know this, but we lived in the SGV for five years, which is why we know the area fairly well. As much as we love the food, I think we'll stay in San Diego.

hmmm, the descriptives for this place aren't really speaking my language: sick pinkish brown broth, musty sewage stink, freezer-burnt flavor gum... I'm surprised you would go back!

too bad some of the items disappointed, still I'm glad you are willing to go back, maybe the next time you'll find items that will be keepers :)

Kirk

Hi FH - I'd go back only for the Guo Ba Cai, which I enjoyed.

Hi Kat - I may just go back for the Guo Ba Soup.....

yikes... looks like you got the bad end of the skewer that night.

If you ever get a hankering to go back again, try the shaobing. they are excellent and very different from typical northern or southern style. crisp on the outside, soft on the inside hockey puck shaped.

Kirk

Hi Andy - Thanks for the rec.....we'll check it out if/when we visit again.
