Xin Bailu Canting (White Deer Dining) has several branches in Hangzhou and thanks to Dennis & Julie of Wyndham Grand Hotel where we stayed, we discovered this wonderful, elegant restaurant just round the right corner of our hotel.
It was 1800 hrs & it was drizzling when we entered the restaurant and it was already filled with diners. We were ushered to our table 5 mins later and our order of roasted spring chicken, chives spring roll & seaweed soup arrived within 10 mins. Food was simply delicious and extremely affordable @ RMB80.
We had such a wonderful & memorable dining experience that we returned the next evening and the dish of salted egg yolk pork ribs, braised roasted chicken with cinnamon, anise & 5 spice powder was superb and "finger-licking good"! For this delicious meal, it costs RMB70.
Needless to say, because of its affordability and great food, its chain of restaurants are always packed. This restaurant is a great find and it leaves us with pleasant memory of this culinary journey in our travel to China. Highly recommended!
