LouWaiLou review - bu hao Hangzhou fondian | Dec 12, 2004 07:42 PM

Showed GF the LouWaiLou thread below and since she is from Hangzhou we had to go immediately. In short, LouWaiLou has no relation to the restaurant of the same name in Hangzhou.

They do not have beggars chicken. They claim it requires a special machine they do not have.

We ordered Gai Lan, West Lake chun chai soup, shredded lamb and lake crab.

They brought us American broccoli instead of gai lan. I has an ominous foreshadowing of the rest of the meal.

The soup was not bad. The lamb was bad. The fresh water crab was OK though at $30 for one crab not inexpensive.

LouWaiLou translates it's name as Chang's Garden though GF and I now refer to it as "bu hao Hangzhou fondian"

There must be 15 better restaurants within two blocks.
