I thought I was on to a pretty good Nanjing food deal at the place where I had a chicken curry and rice, and the chick who cooked would sneak iPhone shots of me. But if I can ignore the ego-boost and focus on the price, this place gives an even better deal. It’s a sort of up-market and on a main (Danfeng) street.
A big plate (featured image) of chicken, rice, with egg over it, curry and some veges, will cost 16 RMB. They used to ply you with constant free tea and soup, although I think you have to grab your own tea now. But last time I went I suddenly had a carton of some sort of juice plonked down by me in the middle of the meal. So they do make an effort to look after you. Plus there is free wifi.
I tend to surreptitiously pack the chicken bits away and give them to Ratbag the cat the next day. Ratbag has gone from being a poor, starving creature to being a bit selective in what he chooses to accept from you. Though when it comes to chicken leftover from this place, he practically takes my hand off at the wrist to get them.
