17/50 – 花福 (Hana Fuku (Hua Fu))

Hana Fuku (literally Flower Blessing) is a restaurant right outside of the South gate of Henan University. The food is superbly delicious and the price is surprisingly reasonable. The feast pictured consists of the following dishes from left to right: eggplant dragon (a deep fried eggplant covered in a slightly sweet and tangy sauce), cabbage tofu (surprisingly flavorful), potato and chestnuts (covered in a savory sauce), 京酱肉丝 (jing jiang rou si (strips of pork which are stuffed into the circular bread pancakes on the outer rim of the dish)), and an additional eggplant dragon.

Hana Fuku is known for the eggplant dragon listed above, but also has several other spectacular dishes not featured. The price of the feast above (including 4 bowls of rice)? 71 RMB (~$11) or about $2.75 per person. (Obviously I don’t eat the jing jiang rou si). We will really miss Hana Fuku, which has been home to our birthday and celebration dinners.

(Thanks to Marlie and Josh for the picture!)
