it's quite inconvenient for those who need it!
This restaurant is owned by a restaurant group which has a total 5 different restaurant brands. Bing Sheng is their main line and there are 5 outlets scattered across the city. For the sake of this post, I did a little Google search and this restaurant comes up on TripAdvisor, Chowhound, Lonely Planet, etc. With these kind of endorsements, it's fame has reached far and wide. Luckily, it did not disappoint.

It's tissue paper! (Not cigarettes!!)
The moment we sat down, my friend already asked the server if the Chef's Black BBQ pork is still available and it is. (whew~ she said it was sold out the last time she was there.) Although the BBQ pork got my friend's mouth watering, it's their "Shuiguichong" tofu (水鬼重豆腐) that knocked my socks off. Just thinking about this tofu makes me happy. I think another Guangzhou trip is due soon!
You might be wondering: "what's so special about this tofu?" To make this tofu, the water is the key. The best Shuiguichong tofu is made from unpolluted spring water from Qingyuan (清遠) and organic soybeans from the local farms. The tofu is then fried in pressed peanut oil until golden brown. To retain its moisture, the fried tofu is placed in the spring water until it is sold. Thus, this tofu is heavier compared to the others but chewier, silkier and more fragrant than the others as well. This is how this tofu earned it's nickname "Weighted Water Monster". This tofu is best when braised or stewed. (I don't know what "best" taste like but this one from Bing Sheng is pretty good for me!)

The Chef's Black BBQ Pork and The Crispy BBQ Pork
My friend loves the Black BBQ Pork and I agreed the sauce is unique.
It's way better than the Crispy BBQ Pork which felt like chewing fat.
Beef Chow Fun
Everything pales in comparison to the tofu.
Signature Pineapple Bread
The buns were much bigger and also not as tasty as I thought.
But then I am probably biased against everything after I tasted the tofu.
