Audre & Dimitri at the Great Wall 2010
We spent about ¥146 and it was good but not worth repeating. We went because of the write up on Native and because the last time we had food from Guangxi, Guizhou, we liked it. We did not have tea because the cheapest was ¥30 which we thought was expensive for an unpretentious place. The courtyard house is atmospheric in a quirky way--it has Australian aboriginal art on the wall along with newspaper articles of Mao. We sat in the one heated room and it was very comfortable. The furniture was traditional and the seats had pads.
We chose the small Sour Soup Stewed with fish (¥48). It was tasty but for us utimately too spicy to be enjoyable. The small size was large and large enough for our main course. We also ordered the House Potato Pancake (¥48) which was supposed to have meat in it but we couldn't taste any. For a humble potato pancake it was good but for ¥48 it wasn't worth the price. For our vegetable we ordered the Private Kitchen BBQ styled aubergine (¥48). It was an unusual roll of eggplant filled with vegetables. The only thing that resembled BBQ was a dab of barbecue sauce on top of the roll.
The rice we ordered was mushy. This wasn't our best meal but it wasn't our worst either.
