if you’re interested, this restaurant is called 吴淞口河鲜川菜馆, and we stopped here on our way to the dujiangyan irrigation system, also known as 都江堰.
the cab driver put us down here for a spot of lunch, as an example of local food and we partook, but obviously steering away from the traditional spicy szechuan dishes. we had chicken soup with gingko nuts – I think this is a local specialty, salty waxed pork stir-fried with local vegetables – very fatty like bacon, stir-fried wild vegetables that tasted like stalks of parsley – fragrant though we’ve never had ‘parsley’ stir-fried on its own before, as well as an omelette.
I use this as another instance of local food, rather than a recommendation to a restaurant. I have no idea where this is, except that it is near 都江堰, but I do have a contact number (028-89700800).
