Subtitled documentary about 5,000-seat, 300-chef West Lake Restaurant in Hunan Provice. Founded in 2000 by a woman. She's a Communist Party member now worth $4 million.
Enormous complex serving hawker-style food from Street of Snacks to elaborate banquets. One 2-level dining room seats 800 and has a stage w/ live entertainment. Many private dining rooms.
I couldn't watch the way they killed a duck, skinned and disembowled a snake or had a contest for chefs who could fry a live fish so quickly that its mouth was still moving after it was cooked. Other than that, it was fascinating.
