Have you ever been to these "legendary restaurants" in Chongqing?
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Many popular restaurants in Chongqing are difficult to find! Maybe those restaurants don’t have elegant environment nor special service, but foods of those restaurants are extremely delicious!
The tender and tasty hock
Yan’s Hock 严记蹄花
Yan’s Hock, located in Ciqikou, is very famous. You will definitely queue up if you go to the restaurant late. There are hock and sinew, which are spicy and delicious, tender and soft. Despite its delicious taste, the dishes here are all in big quantities, which is absolutely cost-effective.
Address: Jinsha Street in Shapingba (near Ciqikou)
Tofu that can float
Renhe Floating 人和水上漂
The so-called floating on the water refers to the softness of tofu: the tofu is so tender that can even float on water! When you are going to eat this tofu, pay attention to its particular eating method: you need to use chopsticks to slowly gather the tofu, otherwise the tofu is too tender to be picked up and eaten; then put it in the sauces. And you can feel the spicy of sauces and the softness and scent of tofu! Extremely delicious! Moreover, there are also other special dishes, such as steamed spareribs with rice flour, pork with salted vegetable, and intestines. They are all amazing and inexpensive, but it is acknowledged that the environment of this restaurant is not so good.
Address: No. 1-1, Longshou Alley, Longshou Road, Yubei District (between Beicheng Hospital and Renhe Jiayuan)
Beef that has many rules
Mangzi Beef 莽子牛肉
The legendary "beef of anger" has no sign. There is only a reminder on the wall: it you are going to eat beef, go down to the second floor. You have to call to make an appointment, since you may miss the chance of eating beef if you go to the store directly without appointment. Moreover, as for its dinner, it only serves for customers who come here for more than 4 people at night, and if there are less than 4 people, those customers still need to book a table for 4, and they must order three bottles of wine. The beef is very big, soft and tender, and it doesn't take much effort to chew! This is also the reason why this restaurant is popular among many costumers since the boss insists on the principle of doing business with conscience!
Address: 2nd Floor in Residential Building, Nanxing Road, Nan'an District (Opposite to Hongsheng Hotel)
It’s still hard to eat even if you have been in line for a long time.
Laoyuanzi Pork intestines with chicken 老院子肥肠鸡
It is located in the alley, and please pay attention: it's not convenient to park here! Pork intestines with chicken is a specialty here, which is divided into large, medium and small and special pots. The taro here is soft and delicious, and chicken and intestines here are also large and will never let you down. The cold dishes here are also worthy of recommendation, and you can serve it yourself. The price of those cold dishes are 3-6 yuan. Although those cold dishes are in small quantities, they are tasty and embody the taste of Chongqing Jianghu cuisine!
