More meetings in the afternoon from Foshan to Shunde. Ended up at a Shunde restaurant. Shunde is considered the heart of Cantonese cuisine. Many of cantonese chefs in top restaurants around the world are from Shunde.

Arrived in Jinan (capital city of Shandong province) and took a 1hr 30mins drive to Taishan. Taishan mountain is historically important in China history as it is a mountain the early emperors visited even the first emperor who united China Qin Shi Huang Ti.
 
Anyway I am here for for holiday so went to visit a factory right away arriving at factory about 1pm so went straight for lunch in the factory canteen. Now this don't look like any canteen at all rather its like a restaurant
