Ignace Lecleir, proprietor at TRB Hutong restaurant, says: 'The crab is delicious and fresh, but they also have a range of other dishes that are very satisfying. It’s a clean, down-to-earth dining spot for a meal at a very reasonable price. Hidden away in an alley, it can be a little difficult to find, but this makes the environment all the more charming and tranquil. The menu is only in Chinese.'
Order this 'Go for the chilli crab (xianglaxie, 香辣蟹; 78RMB per jin for medium crabs, 118RMB per jin for large) the Chongqing boiled fish (chongqing shuizhuyu, 重庆水煮鱼; 36RMB per jin), or the spicy shrimp (xiangla penpenxia, 香辣盆盆虾; 68RMB).'
