A co-worker who’s a Guangzhou native promised us the best seafood lunch around this region. After an hour drive from the city, we entered Nansha Fisherman’s Pier – a hidden culinary gem. After meandering through a street full of live seafood and their respective sellers yelling the lowest bargains, we bought a few servings of octopus, fish, sea urchins, and even sea slugs, and promptly headed to the adjacent street with our fresh catch. My co-worker gave our bounty to the chef and she came back with, as promised, the most delctable seafood feast within the area.
