In the city, there are so few authentic sichuan.Now the Sichuan are spicy instead of marijuana, lost the original taste.
There is a big family, regardless of the courtyard, or the lobby reveals a rich style.
The dining environment is very unique, sitting on a grapefruit tree. No food on the table before, smelling the pomelo fragrant and delicious, waiting for the arrival of this really unique taste.
Cherry meat, greasy taste, sweetness, brought back a lot of childhood memories: the morning of the last class hungry chest stickers on the back, the bell ringing, ran home, my grandmother said: Today eat well peach meat. I'll dig two bowls of cooked rice.
Boneless meat. Stick in the meat on the bones than pure pork chewier, sticky band bone meat tastes very sweet.

Inside the courtyard filled with tables, uncles gather in this tea, or listen to the radio or play together with old people playing bridge, now many young people all cannot read, but they are happiness within.

Let me return to the childhood Street
West Street is not long, leisurely stroll while taking pictures for more than an hour will be finished. The street houses, commercial shops are mostly traditional door plank, shop front homes, or shop in front square.
Commercial atmosphere is very low, almost no shops selling tourism products, and even the people here did not expect tourists to visit.
The street there are many large and small shops, some have been closed, but also open the belly of the jar, stood in a row in the doorway, wine shop signs, read up quite profound meaning.
The shop is full of new and old, martial arts novels also have an old bookstore, a glass door of the barber shop; both bamboo and wood texture of the old signs, there are all kinds of eye-catching shop.
Another alley is in a basic well preserved old courtyard, the door is inlaid with a Taishan shigandang. It is said that put it in the house, can ensure the safety of the house.
