Pan Sun Shi Chengdu Reviews
Sample a selection of meats Nov 16, 2013
The restaurant name Pán Sūn Shì (盘飱市) translates as 'dish meal city' or 'dish supper market' and is taken from a poem by famous Chinese poet, Du Fu (杜甫), called 客至, which translates as 'Guests Coming' or "A Visitor Arrives" and has the line:
盘餐市远无兼味 (pán sūn shì yuǎn wú jiān wèi), which is something like "Far from the market, my food has little taste" or "As the market is so far away, I have little worth eating". I include a couple of links about the poem as I found it interesting:
Anyway, this restaurant was apparently founded in 1925, but not sure if this is the original location or not. However, the neighborhood it is located in does seem older than your typical modern looking Chengdu, so it's possible it has been here a long time. The decor inside is decent looking, but rather an odd collection of styles it seems. There are lots of different types of meats to try here (chicken, duck, goose, beef, pork, etc.) and some other strange looking things too. It seemed to be sort of a 'Meats-R-Us' type of place. We had a 'sampler' plate of meats along with some vegetables. The food was good, not really spectacular, but fine for a lite snack type of lunch. I had the impression it was a bit more expensive than anticipated from what we ordered.
