Hua Zhong Cheng (花中城) is a popular chain restaurant in Hangzhou serving typical Hangzhou cuisine.  We ate at the Leifeng Pagoda branch as it was convenient for us after visiting the pagoda.  

The crab roe with tofu makes the  simple tofu dish extraordinary with its striking orange color, and an intense crabby flavor  that’s worth risking the cholesterol hike!

The deep-fried fish came crisp with everything edible from head to toe with a rewarding crunch with every munch.

Since Hangzhou is famous for its lotus related food – we ordered the lotus stuffed with glutinous rice to try.  It’s a sweet dish that somehow didn’t appeal as much to me – probably because I think lotus is more suitable in a stir fry or soup instead of in a dessert!

The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating area.

The outdoor seating area is nicely done up with a small lake, lovely horticulture and stories about the Leifeng Pagoda presented in statues.

Overall the food was enjoyable at an affordable tourist price though the service wasn’t exactly top notch.  The restaurant seemed to be understaffed and service was unattentive.  The location is extremely convenient though, right at the foot of the Leifeng Pagoda.  If you don’t want to spend extra time looking around for food after you have visited the pagoda and if you don’t mind the service too much, Hua Zhong Cheng would be a good place to eat.
