More food from Jing Hua Restaurant (京华小吃)

Here's another visit to my current favourite guo tie shop and a look at the other stuff that they have on menu which we did not try previously.

These above are blanched bean sprouts topped with the minced meat bean sauce that they use for their zha jiang mian. Those sprouts were well timed in the hot water and cooked to the point where the raw edge was off while retaining a great deal of crunch. Good stuff.

We tried their (pan fried?) pancake stuffed with the same fillings for their guo tie. Crusty on the outside, juicy on the insides.

And then, a tasty spicy and sour soup. There wasn't so much heat from the chilli oil and the sour element seemed to taste like sour plum rather than vinegar. I kinda liked this.

That's a fried pancake filled with lotus seed paste, a departure from the common ones stuffed with red bean paste. While I generally don't quite appreciate thick pancake skins, this was actually not bad. The skin tasted like fried mochi.
