Cool WuXia themed dining Aug 10, 2011
My cousin took me to Feng Bo Zhuang, a WuXia themed restaurant in Shanghai. The whole restaurant's has a bamboo decor, with old style tables and chairs, similar to what you would see in a WuXia TV show or movie. There's also a rack with WuXia weapons lined up, including spears and swords. The wall has images of different WuXia heroes, possibly drawings from similar books. The music playing in the background consists of theme songs from popular WuXia TV shows from the 70's and 80's, such as Legend of Condor Heroes, Chu Liu Xiang, etc.

The restaurant doesn't have an official menu; the waiter, dressed in WuXia clothing comes over to your table and orders for you. He rattles off several dishes, and you are expected to agree with him that that's what you want. My cousin stated that he's been there several times before, and each time the waiter gives them something new. I'm not sure about the ordering system, but it could possibly change depending on how many people you have in your party.

The only downside is that they don't give you a menu (I don't think an official one really exists), and depending on your tastes, you may not like what's being given to you. Of course, if you absolutely don't want the waiter to decide what you eat, there are names of dishes posted on old-style paper near the bar, that you can choose from. Just for the experience, we agreed to the dishes that were chosen for us. They turned out pretty good, and I would imagine they were similar to what people had in the old days.

The food was affordable, each dish ranging from 25-40 yuan.

Overall, it was a very unique restaurant and dining experience, and great for WuXia fans tired of living in the present, because it allows you to imagine how people lived centuries ago.

Hah, had to go back and watch the MV again but yeah it is similar. Looking further in the MV though, it seems Dong Feng Po is more modern era
