Eating
Street food

Street food is very popular in China, especially for young people (because it is cheap). For a few yuan you can eat noodle while you sit down on mini plastic chairs next to the road. It's also very popular to get bbq squid or other meat on a stick. I've started to collect some pictures about this. See more photos below:

Subway restaurant

Subway  just opened a new store in Shenzhen (opposite to Coco Park) and they are currently offering special discounts. Sandwitches vary in price from 16Y (6" Veggie Delight) to  26Y (6" Subway Melt). The staff speaks English, so it should be no problem to order your favorite sandwitch here. I went there today and ate a Roast Beef for 17RMB. Tastes good, but as always Subway restaurants are quite empty. Most Chinese do not seem to like sandwitches so much.

Super Steak

Super Steak restaurant in Coco Park. I have not been there myself, but saw the sign clearly at Coco Park. Two customer reviews at ShenzhenStuff were not so positive:

  • Name is great, but restaurant not so much... First of all, it is too big, you feel like in factory's or school's eatery. This place doesn't have good decoration, no any atmosphere. Prices are also very different, you can have some steak for 70-100 RMB and you can order some dish for 300-400 RMB even. Problem is you do not get much, just steak, no any french fries, just a little (one spoon) potato-mass and some cold vegetable. Usually steak should be hot, still cooking, they gave me almost cold meat. In fact in any (simple) restaurant in Hong Kong you can have steak for 60-80 HKD including good soup, toasts, french fries and it will be big , delicious piece of meat, still hot. Of course Super Steak provides you free salads buffet, but can we call it free, if price for food is quit high?! Moroever service is so so. I got used to that people say "good bye" and invite you again in Chinese language. In this restaurant they do not care, too big eatery, they are not able to notice every customer, who is coming in and going out. I am not saying place is so bad, food (taste) is also fine, but still there are some small mistakes, which they should eliminate to keep good name or they should decrease prices.

  • This place is terrible. We went there for my birthday last year with a large party (12 people).

    The service was pretty crappy. We waited a long, long time before they remembered us and took our order. They didn't even bring us the free salad/fruit plates until a girl remembered that they were supposed to have them and reminded them towards the end of dinner. Also, my friends had to them store the cake to bring out later, but when they did it was still in the box. And they lost the candles. At the end, they also turned the lights out on us when we were eating the cake.

    The food was also awful, especially for the price. The place should be called "Fatsteak" instead because that's what the steaks were--large pieces of FAT with small bits of lean meat attached. None of the people who got steak could finish them because they were mostly fat, even the ones that cost 100+ RMB. Some people got pasta where the shrimp wasn't fully cooked and had to be sent back.

    The only redeeming quality about the place is that they had a free bread bar with cheese dips. That was pretty good.

YuYuan Shanghainese restaurant
Today we went to YuYuan, a Shanghainese restaurant in Citic plaza in Futian district in Shenzhen. It's one of the best Shanghainese restaurants in the city and the price is also quite high, but we had a special offer via the tuan.qq.com website. We liked the restaurant a lot: see the photos and read our impression below:
