Jiang Nan Yi, Shangtianzhu Branch/江南驿, 上天竺店
Add New Venue

<p>It all started a few years ago, at a location nestled within the mist-shrouded foothills off Siyanjing. But this venue is gone forever, instead it has moved to the even quieter Tianzhu Road, close to Faxi Temple (法喜寺). The new venue retains Jiang Nan Yi’s usual style. When we arrived, the first thing you will notice is the big outdoor space, people sitting in the sun, sipping tea, chatting, enjoy fresh air and their delicacies. This rather humble, secluded, little restaurant known as Jiang Nan Yi gained instant notoriety as the spot where Hangzhounese were uncharacteristically willing to wait in exasperatingly lengthy queues, just to grab a seat, and devour steaming bowlfuls of chef/owner Tuzi's Flower Pepper Chicken, which was otherwise known as the city's best jiaomaji (椒麻鸡). There were always plenty of other dishes on the menu, of course, but those oversized portions of savory braised chicken in a rich, succulent sauce were readily the most visible item to anyone who happened to be there during any of Jiang Nan Yi's busy nights. Now you can see much of the same activity at their newest location, which is not only a mere stone's throw from Faxi Temple, but is also situated in such a way that you'll easily lose yourself in a few hours of contemplation, after settling into one of their outdoor seats on a warm day. On our trip, we dug into their famed chicken dish (椒麻鸡) for 68MRB, and we tucked into a few other goodies too: Chicken Feet (鸡爪) at 2.5RMB for each gnarled claw, Curry Shrimp (咖喱虾) for 56RMB, Sour and Spicy Stir-fried Cabbage (酸辣包心菜) for 15RMB, Short Ribs Cooked in the Pickled Tofu Sauce (南乳仔排) for 48RMB, Wonton and Fish Soup (馄饨煮鱼) for 48RMB, Spicy Sausage Steamed with Sausage and Cabbage (麻辣土香肠蒸腊肠) for 48RMB, as well as a rather large selection of nice beers ranging in price from 10 – 45RMB/bottle. It's definitely worth noting that a drive up to this venue might be nice for its scenic roads that wind up the hillsides; but you might want to bring some pocket money for parking spots that are available at about 15RMB for an hour-long stay. <br /> <br /> >> You Can Order: <br /> • Soy Cured Duck (half) 卤鸭 (半只) lu ya 28RMB <br /> • Corn and Ribs (Curry Flavour) 玉米子排 (咖喱味) yu mi zi pai (ga li wei) 35RMB <br /> • Curry Shrimps 咖喱虾 ga li xia 48RMB <br /> • Radish in Meat Sauce 肉汁萝卜 rou zhi luo bo 28RMB <br /> • Curry Beef 咖喱牛肉 ga li niu rou 38RMB/big, 28RMB/small <br /> • Sour and Spicy Cabbage 麻辣大白菜 ma la da bai cai 12RMB <br /> • Homemade Spicy Sausage 麻辣土香肠 ma la tu xiang chang 28RMB <br /> • Pork Cooked in Sugar Cane and Soy Sauce 甘蔗红烧肉 gan zhe hong shao rou 28RMB <br /> • Pumpkin and Ribs Stew 南瓜炖子排 nan gua dun zi pai 30RMB/big, 20RMB/small <br /> • Sichuan Style Spicy Jack Beans 川味四季豆 chuan wei si ji dou 12RMB <br /> • Snails in Soup 上汤螺蛳 shang tang luo si 18RMB <br /> • Cumin Flavoured Spinach 孜然菠菜 zi ran bo cai 18RMB <br /> • Tofu and Crab Egg Soup 蟹黄豆腐 xie huang dou fu 28RMB <br /> • Eggplant Cooked in Soy Sauce 红烧茄子 hong shao qie zi 10RMB <br /> • Dried Tofu Steamed with Homemade Sausage 香干蒸土香肠 xiang gan zheng tu xiang chang 25RMB <br /> • Sichuan Style Spicy Chicken 椒麻鸡 jiao ma ji 68RMB <br /> • Beef and Potato 牛肉土豆 niu rou tu dou TBA for the price <br /> </p>
