Everything was beautiful and I wish I had time to roam around this place to take more photos but it was way too cold and my fingers were almost frozen. The gloves didn’t help because the coldness and moisture from the air can enter the tiny pores in my cheap cotton gloves I bought from Daiso for $2. It was the heating packs that help to keep my hand so warm in pocket.
This is reportedly one of the most popular Chinese restaurants in Hangzhou which is famous for their Dong po rou or 东坡肉(Braised pork) and Green tea scented Chicken. We were a lucky bunch of people because they don’t usually host huge groups of tourists.
I simply love the decor of this restaurant which has a elegant western-outlook with its glass chandeliers and royal cushioned-chairs. There were even a corner for customers to use the computer to surf internet. If I remember clearly, this restaurant was housed within a hotel in Hangzhou. Yes, it seems like a lovely place to dine but food wise, I would say that it isn’t anything to really rave about except that it was just mediocre.
This tea expert who has just graduated from university was there to explain the tea benefits to us. He was a comical guy who made everyone in the room laughed.
