as i mentioned in my previous post, chonging can get damn hot come the summer-time. and with humidity to match the heat, often time you find yourself looking for a way to avoid becoming the world's largest jiaozi, that doesn't involve speanding the entirety of the day in -front of the AC. fear not friends! we have the solution, or shall i say solutions, for you.
all summer long we'll be giving you tips on how to "beat the cq heat." and first on the list(with the exception, of course, of our friend mentioned below) comes to you all the way from the usa. yes, cq now has a dairy queen(aka DQ). and though it lacks the burgers, fries, etc., found in the DQ you may be used to from home, it does have quite the offering of frozen treats, the highlight of which being the blizzard(oreo w/ banana in my case). to get there just hop on the light-rail to yang jia ping, or take a cab or bus(i take the 402 from shapingba) to yang jia ping bu xin jie(aka"fu an bai huo") and go into the "grand ocean" department store building right next to the station. your escape to ice-cold extacy awaits you in the bottom floor. though not hard to find by merely keeping your eyes open, a simple "DQ zai n'ar?" asked to any of the workers ought to get you there.
2 new locations are in the works and will be opening in the near future @ Hong Ya Dong in Jeifangbei, and Paradise Walk in Jiangbei.
