During the warm summer months, seek out the tasty soup called ''mool naeng myun'', an ice-cold, bold beef broth that is laden with buckwheat noodles and laced with bits of cucumber, chive, sliced beef and leafy coriander (British) or cilantro (North Americans refer to coriander as the seed, not the leaf, of the same plant).

on the west side of N Tongyi Lu, one block south of Wenhua Lu near the city center. A good place to find a variety of things in one stop. Eat Chinese food: it's obviously everywhere; however, some consider the local kitchen to be tasteless. To others, the traditional and simple steaming of fresh seafood along with locally grown varieties of fresh vegetables make for healtful, delicately tasty food, remarkable merely in its simple, unadulterated purity. The local delicacy is sea cucumber for which Weihai is very well known. Fresh scallops are readily available and are extremely affordable by western standards. In the summer months, fresh fruits abound. Rice is less prevalent than noodles in this region of China, for wheat is grown in the area. Be sure to try the local ''jiaozi'' or ''baozi'', tender dumplings, particularly those filled with local fresh shrimp and chive. One local restaurant that has very unique offerings is called Yi Kuai Dou Fu (一块豆腐), their specialty is a one piece tofu dish. They also have other great dishes such as tang su liji and gong bao rou.

original set

, Seahorse Books 2003 pages 14-15 , the style is derived from an original set of eight movements created by Ho-Hsieh Lee from Beijing around 1000 BC, this was a time before there were any written records so we only have the oral tradition passed down from father to son to rely on. His family moved to a fishing village called Wei Hei Wei (modern Weihai) on the East coast of China in Shandong Province and settled there and practiced a range of Taoist Arts. The techniques were


gold+de

. In 1873, Germany changed over to the gold standard in conjunction with the new gold mark coin. The United States changed over to gold ''de facto'' in the same year, and over the next 35 years, all other nations changed to gold, leaving only China and the British colonies of Hong Kong and Weihaiwei on the silver standard. The silver standard finally came to an end when it was abandoned by China and Hong Kong in 1935. As more foreign powers entered into treaty relations with China, their nationals also became part of the administration of the settlement, but it always remained a predominantly British affair, at least until the late 1930s when Japan's involvement became of increasing importance. Unlike the colonies of Hong Kong and Weiheiwei (Weihai) which were sovereign British territories, the Shanghai International Settlement always remained Chinese sovereign territory. Hence when the British (United Kingdom) declared war against Germany in 1939, German nationals continued to operate freely within the territory of the international settlement. During the First Sino-Japanese War, the Beiyang Fleet suffered a crushing defeat and in the spring of 1895, the island was occupied by Japanese forces. Ding Ruchang committed suicide. The Japanese occupation lasted for about three years. In 1898, the United Kingdom bought the island (along with the rest of Weihaiwei) off the Japanese and agreed to hand it back to China after 25 years of use or when the Russians left the nearby Port Arthur (Lüshunkou District). Local Chinese were recruited into a British regiment but the island was not fortified. The Royal Navy established a base on Liugong Island occupying and extending the existing facilities. Residences, hospitals, churches, tea houses, a sport ground, a post office, and navy cemeteries were constructed as part of the British development of the area. When the Russians left Port Arthur in 1905, the terms of the lease meant Britain should return the island to China. Britain re-negotiated the lease with the Chinese to counter a new German presence in the area. Weihaiwei was returned to the Republic of China in 1930, after which it was a special administrative region (Special administrative region (Republic of China)). The Chinese government allowed the Royal Navy to continue to use the naval base for another ten years, but this was cut short when Japan invaded in 1938. In 1949, the island was occupied by the People's Liberation Army. http: www.allstates-flag.com fotw flags cn_gbcol.html * 9 June 1898 - Convention for the Extension of Hong Kong Territory (Second Convention of Peking): New Territories are leased to Britain for 99 years, and are incorporated in Hong Kong *1898 - The British obtain a lease on Weihai Harbour, Shandong, to run for as long as the Russians lease Port Arthur (Lüshunkou).
