If you think the Wicker Basket is in the south of the city, there's a lot of city you haven't seen.

China is safe except for cellphones and bikes? The cars are much more dangerous than the bikes, and I don't know what is dangerous about Chinese cellphones.

Tomann's sausages rock!

As for flying food in from around the world, I suggest one keep it to a minimum, or airplane dust will be coating your hotdogs even as you eat them.

@xfouroo: Sorry to hear that family members were mistreated in the past, but are you also saying the story presented here on gokunming is a joke? If so, why? I haven't looked for the wikipedia story.



Not quite what you'd call a jumping place, but not bad at all for rather standard US-type meals, not overly expensive, and with a really good salad bar that's cheap, or free with most dinner dishes after 5:30PM. You can get a bottle of beer or even wine if you really want to, but I've never seen anybody do it - maybe that's just to take out. Chinese Christian run, and they hire people with physical disadvantages, who are pleasant and helpful. Frequented by foreign (mostly North American) Christians and Chinese Christians - was started by a Canadian couple associated with Bless China (previously, Project Grace), who are no longer here, but no religious pressure or any of that. Steaks are nothing special, and I avoid the Korean dishes, which I've had a few times but which did not impress me.

As a shop and bakery, it's very good bread at reasonable prices, of various kinds (Y18 for a good multigrain loaf that certainly weighs well over a pound. Other stuff too, like granola and oatmeal that is local, as well as imported things, including American cornflakes and so forth, which some people seem to require.


Large portions, seriously so with the pizza, which is Brooklyn/American style, I guess. Convivial, conversational, good place to drink with good folks on both sides of the bar, especially after about 9PM.


Really good pizza and steaks. The wine machine fuddles me when I'm a bit fuddled, & seems unnecessary. Good folks on both sides of the bar.
