I used to live in Nanjing sanpailou several years ago. I often recall the time we eat barbecue there outside. Yestoday evening, we went there again. I was totally amazed by the big change happened there. The barbecure booth all being lined in a straigt line and the seller are all wearing the same apparel. It seems that the goverment has put more admistrative effect in this district, and make it more clean, yet preserve the local famous barbecue culture there, not just cancel it to upset the local people.
People like the evening barbecue culture. Bought some beer and order some barbecue items, virtually everything you can ordered there. Enjoy the happy time with your family, and I like this simple yet happy lifestyle very much. When the summer comes, we can went there more often. The food quality there is good and the eating atmosphere is also great.
Anyway, it's a famous spot and a big representative of Nanjing evening lifestyle. If you are in Nanjing, I strongly recommend you to experience it yourself.
