Restaurant for the Masses Nov 18, 2013
Dàzhòng fàndiàn (大众饭店) is located very near the main entrance to the Oriental Buddha Park in Leshan, China. Dàzhòng (大众) means a large crowd or many people, and fàndiàn (饭店) means food store or restaurant. The interpretation would be "Many People's restaurant" or "Masses Restaurant", hence my title for this review "Restaurant for the Masses". Interestingly enough, if you enter the Chinese name of this restaurant (大众饭店) in the google translate it tells you Volkswagen Hotel. Volkswagen is German for the "people's car". Very strange this business of language and meaning in the way it translates across cultures. This is a restaurant review, however, and not a linguistics lesson, but I include some information here about the name for curiosity sake.

Went in here for lunch after the bus trip to Buddha Park from Leshan Central Bus Station. The bus stops here right in front of the restaurant, very near the East gate main entrance to the Buddha Park. It's a small restaurant, but with quick service and decent food - served hot. Not overly spectacular, but average and good for some nourishment before taking on Buddha Park and the Giant Leshan Buddha (Da Fo). The tofu dish with sauce was quite good and to my liking (very spicy too), but the rest was just ok. There are a couple of other restaurants near here also, and offer other options. I recommend having something to eat before entering the Park and/or visiting the Giant Buddha (Da Fo). This place at least I can say was good enough for a quick lunch, but with some hit and miss food.

Address in Chinese: 四川省乐山市凌云街384号

What's in a name: Dàzhòng fàndiàn, 大众饭店, or masses restaurant? As long as the food satisfies I can't complain on the name!

Google translate is clearly dis-oriented when it comes to Chinese....
