Lao Yu Gang Seafood Square, a new food cooking centre in Sanya
Places for eating seafood can be found everywhere in Sanya. Sanya’s Lao Yu Gang Seafood Square is a new addition to the city that offers fresh seafood cuisine against the picturesque backdrop of Sanya Bay.
Located near the former Honggang Market, the seafood square is over 2,600 square meters in size, making it one of the biggest seafood squares in the city and also has good sea view.
The square has 110 stalls selling seafood and 35 restaurants that will cook the seafood for you for a small fee per dish. Each stall-sized restaurant can seat 70 diners, which makes it a super large seafood dining area that can accommodate over 2,000 people at once.
Diners can either pick ingredients there or buy them beforehand and have them cooked — usually fried, steamed, grilled, boiled or barbecued — for a small fee.
The environment at Lao Yu Gang Seafood Square is best for outdoor dining. Here diners can not only take advantage of seafood caught fresh but also enjoy their food with a gentle sea breeze and watch one of Sanya Bay’s spectacular sunsets, with the glittering Phoenix Island shining across the water.
This seafood square is also a good choice if you like to buy your seafood on a budget and cook at home. It is worth visiting for its always fascinating selection of fresh live abalone, oysters, clam, various kinds of fishes in season.
