Located in between Charmant and Cotton Club, this restaurant is open late and serves Chinese cuisine -- I can't really put my finger on which specific regional brand, but who cares, the food is good! However personally I'd say that the food here is Sichuan-influenced as quite a number of them are spicy, but yet not as tongue-numbing as most Sichuan food.
Favorite Dish: Some of my favourites here are the small country potatoes (xiang1 cun1 xiao3 tu3 dou4), Chinese cabbage in chicken broth (ji1 zhi1 wa2 wa cai4), plain boiled pork with garlic and chilli oil (suan4 ni2 bai2 rou4), charcoal-grilled pork neck (tan4 kao3 zhu1 jing3 rou4) and water(oil)-cooked black carp (fei4 teng2 qing1 yu2).
The lamb chops with cumin (zi1 ran2 yang2 pai2) are also good, but a little more difficult to eat because of the bones.
For kids I would especially recommend the small country potatoes (a wee bit spicy), Chinese cabbage in chicken broth and charcoal-grilled pork neck. If they can take spicy food, add the plain boiled pork with garlic and chilli.
For the elderly, I would recommend a dish of soft tofu etc with pureed vegetables (cui4 tang2 dou4 hua1) in addition to what I suggested for kids above. Similarly if they can take spicy food, add the plain boiled pork with garlic and chilli.
