Shenyang: Lunch @ 华夏民俗村 (Huaxia Folk Village)

Restaurant: 华夏民俗村 (Pinyin: hua xia min su cun; transl.: Huaxia Folk Village)
City: Shenyang, Liaoning, China

We visted Dongbei Theological Seminary’s new campus in Shenyang. The area of this new campus was donated by the owner of 华夏民俗村, which is now neighboring the campus. The owner is a Christian businessman, who owns the restaurant. 华夏民俗村 is divided into two parts, 热带雨林 (Rainforest) and 世外桃源 (Paradise). Each part has a different theme and type of dishes.

We ate at 世外桃源 (Paradise). There were small buildings scattered around the area. The area used to be a village, with each home converted to dining rooms. Each building has two dining rooms, with a large round table in each room. The restaurant’s kitchen was located elsewhere on the premises and several waiters were seen walking around outside with trays of food or drinks, from the kitchen to the dining rooms. I felt like I was eating at the countryside!

The interior and ceiling was captivating as well!

All of us had a set of dishes that were packaged in plastic wrap, and a pair of chopsticks wrapped in paper. This was to ensure that the dishes were clean.

Instead of tea, everyone was served hot soy milk (unsweetened) from a kettle.

Noodles and bread is a specialty in Northeastern China. We had pan fried spiral bread with a mix of meats and vegetables underneath!
