While I was stuffing my face and consequently trying to work it off on a bike in Taichung (<< click on Taichung for more on that...), my dad and one of my uncles joined Facebook and both decided to add me. I guess that's what long weekends do to people.
So finally today I checked out my dad's profile page. He actually posted status updates... about food! One of which I shall post here - I'm sure he's happy to share...
|Dadong's Peking duck|
When in Beijing, don't go for Peking duck at Quan Ju De, go to Dadong. Aside from the duck, a lot of other dishes are great too, and the decor is contemporary and luxurious. The service, however, is typical of Beijing and Shanghai - they're not as detail-oriented as in Shenzhen , nor as efficient as Hong Kong. Average cost 200RMB per head.
 My dad works full-time in Shenzhen, and knows all the fancy restaurants because that's kind of part of his job (he's not in hospitality - he just needs to entertain people who like fancy restaurants)
 shua yang rou is Beijing-style hotpot, mutton is often the meat of choice (hence yang - lamb). I had this in Hong Kong recently too.
So yeah, if you've ever wondered why I'm so into food, here, and the rest of my family, is your answer. Now, excuse me while I log on to Facebook and suggest my page to my dad, so he can "Like" it...
