University Cafeterias
E-card is a fast payment in most of these cafeterias though cash is also accepted.  Sometimes both the e-card’s transport and dining accounts can be used, such as in the Teachers/staff canteen.

Staff Cafeteria: With a variety of Chinese-style dishes available to choose from, the Staff/Teachers’ Cafeteria is located 1st F next to the Experimental Hotel building and is open every day for breakfast (7.00-8.30), lunch (11.00-13.00) and dinner (17.00-19.00). Please note that from 11:30 to 12:15 this canteen is open for teachers and staff only. Students can only use after 12:15. Also, teachers have priority of service at the first and second serving windows/queues where there is writing in Chinese on the glass – that is, teachers can jump to the front of the queue of students.

The Second floor Cafeteria above the Staff Cafeteria: offers a wider variety of dishes. The rows of seats near the window are open for staff-only from 11:30 to 12:30. There is a restaurant with a picture menu in the wing off this cafeteria.

There are three more cafeterias in the student dormitory area; one behind the Dormitory Building No.5 and the other at the back of Dormitory Building No.1 close to the university back gate. Special dishes from various cities in China are available.  Refreshing lemon-Sprite & lemon-water drinks are sold on 2nd floor entrance way of students’ canteen that is nearer the road.  The third is a Hahal restaurant on the second floor of a solitary building, on campus, near the overhead walk bridge.

In the villages: If you fancy some more exciting Chinese food experience, restaurants along the street and in the adjacent village at the university back (North) gate are popular places to go. Recommended are: fried chicken fast food store HKC; the pizza place called Mojo Pizza & Bar (校园魔速递 xiao yuan mo su di ) with an easy to read menu; a restaurant called Chongqing Yuzhuang (重庆鱼庄) with a picture menu that has BBQ fish its specialty …. if you want the BBQ fish separated from the spicy sauce & vegetables say: kaoyu bujia jiangyou he shucai (烤鱼不加酱油和蔬菜).  Also, check out the various cafes.
