china/2004/night_hunan_restaurant

Hunan restaurant, Shànghǎi, China — January 11, 2004

This local restaurant on Huanzhen South Road near Hongmei Lu (probably long since closed) enticed us one cold winter evening. Their menu looked good so after a beer and some cold appetizers we asked for their house special and no sooner did a huge tray of spicy chicken arrive. We began nibbling, but soon found the chicken to be mostly bones. Jeremy exclaimed our predicament in Chinese yet the waiter denied that our plate was mostly bones. After several back and forths we got up and left and were yelled out all the way down there street. I do follow the school of thought that chicken on the bone tastes better, but in in this instance I think we were just served leftover bones. We never returned even though we could see this place from the view where we were staying.
