After checked in to the hotel, we went out to look for our second breakfast.
Not far the hotel, we saw the above steamed buns vendor busy selling steaming hot buns.
We decided to get one to try. It was only RMB1 (about CAD0.15) each. So cheap.
We got one with meat filing. It was very good for CAD0.15. There were many workers bought the steamed buns to go. We also saw groups of workers exercising before they start work.
We then walked to the Muslim Quarter to look for more food as recommended by the hotel concierge. The food in front of a restaurant caught our attention. It’s some kind of fried rice cake.
After we ordered our food, we were given a number sign at our table. When the server finished delivering our food, she took away the sign. It’s kind of their delivery system.
The above was the fried rice cake that attracted us to this restaurant. It has a mild savory flavour and the texture is like jello, not chewy.
We also ordered a popular noodle dish here to share. It’s called “Lamb Pou Mou”. It is basically thick unleavened bread that is broken into small pieces and cooked in a lamb broth. I think you can find this in the Richmond Public Market.
The Lamb Pou Mou is served with pickled garlic and chili paste.
The bread soaked up the soup and became very soft. So, eat them fast before they get too soft. Our meal came to RMB24 (CAD4).
