|The (large and) healthful pig lung soup!|
No one seemed to notice and preferred focusing on their dining companions and of course the food.
We started off with the pig lung soup that was served in a giant tureen -- so large that nine of us almost had three bowls each. This soup is tedious to prepare, mostly because the lung needs to be cleaned thoroughly before it is put in the soup otherwise it spoils the taste.
|The fried crispy chicken was quickly devoured...|
It's said that drinking this soup helps get rid of coughs, or any respiratory ailments, so we made sure we each had an extra bowl.
|Another excellent dish of pork knuckle with lotus root|
Another highlight was a very large, relatively flat fish that was smoked with tea leaves and served with mayonnaise. Fish this large are hard to find in the markets these days and so this was a treat.

By the time we waddled out at 10pm more than half the place had already cleared out. Another memorable meal sitting comfortably in our stomachs!
