Why Yaoji Chaogan (Gulou) is special ?

Yaoji Chaogan rocketed to fame this year when US vice president Joe Biden stopped by for a meal, but people have been ordering here for over 30 years. The two connected buildings have different starting and ending times but the same menu.

Come for a local breakfast of fermented douzhi to see whether you’re strong enough to be a true local, or have a small bowl of zhajiang mian, the dish Biden had: local noodles topped with a porky bean sauce, pink radish, crisp cucumber and soybeans. The house special is chaogan, a beloved, thick livery stew with pig intestines.
