You should judge for yourself how sanitary the food is, but Hangzhou is generally fairly civilized in this respect relative to other Chinese cities. These restaurants are all quite similar.

Born in 1687 in Hangzhou, '''Jin Nong''' (金農) became popular as a painter and calligrapher while living as a childless widower in Yangzhou in his sixties. His paintings of ''mei (ume)'' blossoms were in particular demand there. Heralded as one of The Eight Eccentrics of Yangzhou, Jin prescribed to the amateur scholar style. A nonconformist, he generally painted more traditional images laden with symbolism (such as orchids, bamboo, chrysanthemums, and mei blossoms) and preserved his independence by selling works in an open market, rather than adopting an individual patron. Later styles included Buddhist (Buddhism) imagery. However, Jin was the first artist in the Chinese tradition to paint a large number of self-portraits and did earn money through the patronage of wealthy individuals in Yangzhou who, in addition to buying works, were possible publishers for his numerous writings. Jin probably understood these contradictions as he argued that living off of painting should not be considered dishonorable.
