Not exactly something that I have tried before but I found out Guizhou cuisine (according to Wikipedia is similar to Szechuan and Hunan cuisine) is a mix of sour and spicy and features quite a few soups / steamboat dishes too. None of our food was overly spicy which was probably the key difference.
The mixed pork offal platter came with a variety of internal organs to the ears. Dipped with the spicy and salty sauce, this was a good starter if you like the "works" as I call it.
The eggplant resembled the local Malaysian Yong Tau Foo style except this was deep fried and came with a sweet and sour sauce. This was probably the dish to drive us back a second time but alas the second visit, the eggplant had a heavy and chewy batter.
This is comfort food at its best, the salted vegetable with pork belly. Personal preference says I rather have the pork with yam but beggars can't be choosers.
As I am writing this, I am staring at this dish with a blur because I can't remember what was in it. If I am not mistaken, the tomato base was filled with generous fish slices. Although I do remember having another dish which resembled steampot and came with lots of fish slices too.
Translated this dish is called "Water cooked Beef" but this was probably poached in chili oil which resulted in very succulent beef slices.
Overall, a very satisfying meal of Guizhou cuisine, the beef slices and the pork belly were a gem but because the Wife doesn't seem to appreciate those dishes nor the soup based dishes that they seem to be famous for, it might be a while before I revisit. Otherwise, a place for what looks and tastes authentic enough without a hint of adjustment for the Western palates (simply because they don't seem to be any, the crowd is about 100% Chinese).

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. Authentic chinese cuisine and at reasonable prices too may I add. Let's hope it stays that way.
