Shanxi Tijian Noodles (10¥) is a classic dish with 3 items; noodles, tomatoes with egg, and Zha Jiang sauce. Combine them yourselves and you have a delicious dish.
Pan Fried Pork Dumplings (12¥) were very good with nice outside skin and meat. Could have use a more fried bottom.
Salted pork, Bamboo Shoots (36¥) were a nice way to get some vegetables with some meat flavor. In any case, not much real meat.
Marinated Donkey Penis (68¥) was ordered for fun. It did not taste like chicken. It was gamey and very gelatinous. No aphrodisiac effect
Winter Melon Soup (38¥) was pretty bland. It tasted like it had been cooked for five minutes.
Jinjiang Palace Chinese Restaurant had very good service, with a server near us at most times. Labor is cheap in China, so this is the case in most finer restaurants. Prices are higher than most local restaurants, as this place focuses on being convenient to hotel guests.
