Wenming Road (文明路) is one of the most typical arcade streets in Guangzhou. Under the arcades, there are old snack bars, calligraphy, painting and framing shops, copperware booths and so on. And there are also time-honored household dessert and soup parlors as well as hole-in-the-wall restaurants, which might look tired or shabby but offer some of the city’s finest foods.

Rose Dessert Store (玫瑰甜品店)

The Rose Dessert Store is a famous local dessert store. Its storefront is very small, and it is always full to bursting. Warm and homely, the store glows with warm yellow light, rosewood tables and chairs, and some traditional Chinese style paintings.

On a closer look, these ‘paintings’ are actually the store’s menu. One of the paintings mentions that ‘almond curd in syrup’ is one of the store’s signature dishes, and it can be accompanied by many extra ingredients ranging from one to four RMB. Another signature dish is ‘mango sago dessert’ which can be paired with chewy taro balls with an extra price of only three yuan.
