Menu from a lunch at the Hua Yang branch of the rural themed Tian Yuan Yin Xiang (Farmland Impression – 田园印象) in Chengdu, Sichuan:
Steamed pan bread
Spicy jelly noodles
Lotus leaf steamed beef
Sweet corn bread
Twice cooked pork
Rabbit with giant spring onions
Enoki mushroom soup
Tian Yuan Yin Xiang, another themed restaurant, is based on the style of food that’s typical on rural farms. The basis is that the ingredients a natural and unadulterated and the cooking is not very sophisticated.
But the food, though simple, is perfectly delicious. And if anything, they’re made deliberately rustic.
