Privy 5 Overview

Share |

A former headquarters for the Communist Party in 1930’s, this establishment is known for being one of the oldest yet famous restaurant after all these years. The reason may lie to the fact that they have learned to gradually include spices from outside their region, particularly Sichuan chilies. With over 80 seafood choices to satisfy everyone’s palate, great recommendations include: deep-fried shredded spicy eel, lobster/prawns in chili pepper sauce, and Mandarin fish with noodles in chili sauce. Specialty is the Meilongzhen’s special chicken which is served in small ceramic pots. Tour buses often stop by so be sure to get reservations ahead.
