Transplants from the coasts will tell you: The greatness of a Chinese restaurant can almost always be determined by the aromas wafting from the kitchen. On this count, Guilin does not disappoint. While Chinese food and healthy food have never been synonymous, Guilin makes the case that neither are they mutually exclusive. Although there are dozens of traditional entrées focused on chicken, pork and beef, Guilin offers extensive vegetarian and vegan dishes with meat substitutes that go way beyond the usual tofu. The lo mein noodle dishes are exquisite, and the eggplant is sensational. And with no fewer than 16 shrimp entrées, how can any hungry seafood-lover go wrong?
