Suzhou Pine & Crane Restaurant Introduction


Song He Lou (松鹤楼, The Pine and Crane Restaurant) built in 1737 with a history over 250 years of history. Originally established in Xuanguan Temple (玄观庙, a mingled temple of Taoism and Buddhism) by a man surnamed Xu. In Suzhou, Song He Lou is the most time-honored and famous restaurant serving the authentic cuisine of Suzhou. It boasts the cradle of Suzhou Cuisine Chefs, and the site of time-honored brands of China. The chefs of Song He Lou have won the gold awards in many international or nationwide culinary contests. It is also awarded the honors of Jinding Award, Famous Snack of China and the National Superfine Restaurant by the Ministry of Commerce. In some way, it represents the cuisine culture of Suzhou. For this, it can be seen in many movies and literature works.

In a famous novel of warriors and Kung Fu named Tian Long Ba Bu (天龙八部) written by Jin Yong, Song He Lou was mentioned for several times. In 2007, Jin Yong at the age of 84 visited Song He Lou again and tasted the local cuisine. He inscribed for this old restaurant – This time-honored restaurant still looks young though experiences a lot, and looks like the evergreen pine trees and the cranes with a capacity of longevity. (百年老店,历久常新,如松长青,似鹤添寿).
