Life in China 2016: A Picture A Day, July 27 – Today, we had lunch at a small street restaurant in Guangzhou. These are very common and where a large number of the local working class and students eat. They are small, crowded and cheap! Lunch for the three of us was 36rmb or $5.40 usd! During extra busy times, they also have folding tables and plastic chairs or stools set-up on the sidewalk. There is generally no air conditioning and they are open to the street. We managed to get good seats in front of a wall mounted fan :-) Also, if there are extra seats at your table, and it’s busy, someone will most likely join you. Facing the restaurant, we sat on the left side, in the center (outside) the menu was posted on the wall, all in Chinese (no pictures), and a lady sitting there to take your order, collect your money and give you a number. On the right side was the small kitchen. Leah and I had BBQ pork rice rolls, our friend had shrimp in hers, and we shared some fried greens. The menu also had some soups, noodles, congee, rice, some vegetables, and more. Chopsticks are in a big crock on your table along with some seasonings. There was one lady serving the food and cleaning up the tables. The food was delicious!
