Xiao Wang Fu: "Disappointment" Xiao Wang Fu Restaurant Tip by oerkenbo
Xiao Wang Fu Restaurant, Beijing: 4 reviews and 8 photos
Well, the LP guide gave this restaurant a gushing review -- totally incomprehensible.
First it wasn't easy to find. Once you're there the service was somewhere between nonchalant and incompetent. When we went, they ran out of their signature dish -- deep fried spicy spare rib. When asked what else they had, they recommended another kind of spare rib dish. (Huh?)
Some of the other so-called signature dishes -- such as the fried tofu in the picture -- were just poorly done. We ordered a shrimp dish and the shrimps tasted like they had just been liberated from a multiple year prison term in the freezer.
It was obviously a rather popular restaurant. But god only knows why.
