I was lucky enough to be invited to judge in the 1st China National High School English Debating Championships held in Jinling High School in Nanjing. The host school treated us judges to dinner in one of the best Chinese restaurants in Nanjing, 大牌福. The interiors reflected original street designs of 1800s. It was amazing being there, it was like being transported back into time.
I munched and chatted through the evening and thus forgot to take pertinent details of the food that we ordered and the location of the place, so what follows is a line-up of photos of the food that we ate (taken with my camera).
|Mixed veggies (including turnip)|
|Tofu with crab eggs|
|Tiny edible shrimp|
|Xiao long bao 小笼包|
|Hakaw! a.k.a. Shrimp dumpling|
|Gyoza? (but that's Japanese...)|
