Lǎo Wū Cháyuán

Teahouse in Songpan

Through an unassuming archway near the east end of Yìng Yuè Qiáo is this buzzing courtyard teahouse, a local favourite. The house special, spicy liángfěn (凉粉; ¥8), made of mung bean and potato starch, won the prize for being the best in the region. The hours are a bit erratic in practice, but officially they're open from 8am to 11pm.
