It is delicious, and you can eat the difference between half-hill chicken and chicken. Perhaps it is the usual feeding of whole grains and can be run all over the mountains. The chicken tastes delicious and very chewy. (Fig. 567) The second tasting is the [Black Tree Village Western Restaurant] in Qiliping. The restaurant is decorated with great care and the details are very lovely. Two salads, mushroom soup, three-point steak, one lamb chops and one onion ring were ordered. The taste of each dish is very good, subverting the concept that the scenic spot can only make do with eating. (Fig. 89) The last meal is [Organic Chinese Restaurant] ordered a few home-cooked dishes. The favorite is to stir-fry the waist, three to five and two to empty the plate after the end of the meaning is still not added to the Pan Gong Bao chicken and fried pork.
