I'd be interested to hear from anyone who regularly goes to some little-known restaurant (hole-in-the-wall type, perhaps) where there is consistently good (safe) food, friendly service and great prices. Let's share our food finds!

My recommendation is a Muslim restaurant (green façade) on FengZhu Street, just round the corner from Robert's School and next to a bright yellow school and rubbish disposal centre. Opposite a shop called "AAA".
Despite the dodgy-sounding location, the proprietors are very friendly and the food is always fresh and freshly-cooked. The café gets busy with local schoolchildren midday, but is quieter at other times. Typical (large) noodle or fried dishes cost 12-18RMB inc free beef soup. Never been ill from eating there. Try the "XinJiang BanMian"

You've not been for a while!! A monk there told me they were all removed to another location. He implied they would be returned after the pool was cleaned, but that was well over a year ago.

The museum has expanded and now also has a nice section on China's High Speed Train System, including a mock-up of the inside of a HS train.

Took my son to the waterfall today. Nice grounds, well kept. There's a children's activity park towards the far end of the lake. As an alternative to the previously explained route, you can leave 司家营 station at Exit A and take a three-wheeled "taxi" to the Park for 10RMB. The Park itself is free and has a nice marked running track for those so inclined.

This is a great show which, although pricey (about 100RMB depending on seat, kids under 1metre for free) is pretty good value for a 1.5 hour show. Few animals (horses, dogs and a couple of camels only) and lots of impressive human feats, with an international flavour. I was pleasantly surprised and my son loved it.

Clean pool with nice showers, but small (25-30m?) and deep (1.2-1.5m) so not great for tiny kids. Biggest disappointment is the hefty price - 50RMB for adults and 30RMB for kids (before any discounts). Easy to find, as name is in English outside (though it looks like a shop front).

Not very clean, but friendly staff, two pools (adult and child) and only 25RMB. Worth a visit.
