南京大排档

2 comments

I think this will be my LASTTTT China post :( I will go back to China and take more pictures? I’m not doing much else with my life anyway…

This is a restaurant that’s called 大排档 (Da pai Dang – Chinese pinyin that really doesn’t help anyone). It’s suppose to be modeled after the real 大排档 in the olden days, where it’s kind of like an outdoor square and you can order food from various vendors and…? I don’t know really.. I’ll just link a wikipedia article. Okay this is the Hong Kong version but basically the same idea, except this is from the super olden days of china when all the men had long braids, like in those period dramas though I don’t think anyone watches Period dramas here…

anyways, lots of food p0rn, it’s more expensive here than the actual food stalls, so if you want actual local food that’s exactly the same but tastes better you have to go find them on the streets, which is thrilling and frightening at the same time. But yeah, it’s a great place to take your foreign friends to if you’re ever in town, but lots of locals too :D
