We recently finished up our latest culinary tour of China in the Summer of 2011. Guangzhou is the origination point for Cantonese Chinese cuisine, making it a must visit for those serious about Chinese food.
Here are some quick mini reviews of places we ate at. We feel this will be useful as more people visit this up-and-coming area. We found few reviews on Trip Advisor and Dianping.
If a restaurant does not have a website, we link to their Dianping page if available.

Home-style BBQ Combo (¥68) A combination of suckling pig, very good roast goose with an excellent skin.
Crispy Pigeon (28) was very good and extremely juicy, but featured spices we had not encountered before.
Crispy Sandy Chicken Village Style (70 half) was an excellent chicken with a super crisp skin and some smokey flavored meat.
Three Treasures Combo (550) This dish featured three items. Steamed scallops with minced garlic and vermicelli noodles was very good and fresh but not as good as Sai Kung, Hong Kong.
Abalone and goose feet was outrageously good. A rich gravy, tender abalone made this a must order. The best version we have had.
Yam vegetables were fresh and very good.
Sesame Balls were hot and very good with lots of black colored interior goodness.
Deep Fried Pork Dumplings were also very hot, crispy, and excellent.
Turnip Cake had three cubes featuring excellent turnip flavors.
Green Onion Pancake was an unusual version that featured a inflated balloon-like structure. Soft but not too crunchy.
