Hangzhou Zhiweiguan Restaurant

 

Zhiweiguan Restaurant is a local brand known to all old-timers of Hangzhou. It opened business in 1913, starting with a wonton stall. The owner put up an advertising post reading “To know (zhi) its taste (wei), just take a look (guan) at the ingredients of my choice”, and business soon flourished. Hence the name of the restaurant – Zhiweiguan. In the century that followed, Zhiweiguan remained an outstanding representative of Hangzhou snacks and specialties.
