Various!!: The "in" place to go!!

I haven't got a photo or a specific address but I can tell you where the "in" place to go to is in terms of thousands of local Chinese.

We stumbled upon this eating hive of activity by accident but could not ignore it- imagine hundreds of Chinese queued up outside a number of restaurants and when you go in you are assaulted by steam everywhere and people hunched over small coal "BBQs" steaming an assortment of vegetables, fish, meat etc.

Where? The area near the Confucius Temple known as Fu Zi Miao

Food Hall - Nanjing
Grand Ocean food hall basement @Healthy eating: Food Hall

This is a food hall that has a range of different food from noodles through to Japanese. You buy a voucher (for about 50 Yuan) and then use it to buy whatever you want. We ate noodles one day and Japanese curry the next day!!

Cheap but good!!

The Grand Ocean is next to the Central Department Store on East Zhongshan Road which did not appear to have a food hall!! (at least we did not find it!!)

Comparison: least expensive

Price: less than US$10

Cheap Japanese Food - Nanjing
Aijsden: Cheap Japanese Food

We found this restaurant in the basement of the "Healthy Eating" Grand Ocean food hall which is in East Zhongshan Road. There is a food hall as well but this restaurant is separate which means that you do not buy a voucher and use it to buy a meal. There was a queue to get in so we knew it was good and it did not disappoint!

Favorite Dish: Spicy Beef noodle 25 Yuan each!! Hot and spicy!!

Comparison: less expensive than average

Price: US$11-20

Upmarket but not expensive - Nanjing
Tian Tian Lou: Upmarket but not expensive

Somehow we stumbled into this restaurant near the Wende Bridge. It was filled with lots of Chinese so we went in. It seemed to be a bit more upmarket than our usual forays but we stayed.

We had asparagus and duck, fried spinach and hot spicy tofu with a coconut milk and large Tsingtao Beer. Delicious!!

Total 94 Yuan

Comparison: less expensive than average

Price: US$11-20
