Great atmosphere right along the banks of the main creek in town, the seating can be a bit tight outside, but it's well worth it, especially for people-watching and for being seen by... everyone.

Favorite Dish: I recommend getting some variety of hot pot- you choose what goes in and they'll bring you all the water you need- just make sure to let the water come to a boil, which shouldn't take long. They serve, as does most any place in town, local Lancang (lawnstawng) and Dali (Dahlee) beer, which I recommend over the other stuff- not that it's great beer, but you can get Tsing Dao anywhere...

Four images.

Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Where you see a mass of seating in an open-walled area, it's right across the bridge.
Price: US$11-20
Rating: 5
