For a little taste of Guangzhou food without going to the extreme, head on to the Bing Sheng Seafood Restaurant. There are several outlets of Bing Sheng in the city of Guang Zhou itself, but I have only visited two of their branches and can only recommend the two I have been to. Both of the restaurants I have been to are extremely large, with a main dining area for walk-in guests, and several separate rooms for functions and parties, guests with prior reservations, or for those that prefer a little more privacy (depending on availability). Each room is equipped with a television and tables for up to 10 guests.
The specialties of this restaurant are the fresh raw fish and raw prawns. The raw prawns or fish are served in two ways, either in wine or on ice. It is dished up in such a way to sterilize the bacteria that are usually found on raw meat. The prawns are literally still alive and moving, and we have to skin them ourselves, dip them in wasabi sauce, and just eat them like that! It may seem rather disgusting at the beginning, but the prawns actually taste quite delicious and are extremely fresh. This is definitely not something to be missed! Bing Sheng also serves cooked Chinese food like porridge, chicken, pork ribs, fried rice or mee, vegetables, etc.
