After having my share of delicious Chinese dishes with noodles, dumplings, and plenty of rice, a Western girl like me was starting to crave some familiar foods during my travel in Beijing. Fortunately, there are a number of wonderful restaurants in this city that offer all types of cuisine from Belgian, to Italian, to a good ole American-style cheeseburger. One of my favorite Beijing tours, I must confess, has been the ‘gourmet’ tour I have taken myself on, trying out various eateries in the area. So for any expats coming to Beijing, here are a few places I would like to recommend.

The Tree

For those looking for a mouthwatering pizza and pint of draught beer, make your way to The Tree. A regular stop for Beijing’s European community, this welcoming tavern in Sanlitun is best known for its Belgian whites and assorted stone oven baked pizzas. Decorated to resemble an authentic Belgian inn, it’s a favorite for families looking to grab a good meal come early in the evening, but it is also carries it usual crowd of drinkers who gather along the convivial brick-built bar.

If you have Italian on the mind, Annie’s is the ultimate must-do. The many awards and recognition it has received will not mislead you, this place is incredible. This gem of the Chaoyang district is a casual, cozy and tremendously welcoming bistro. It is a hands-down the best affordable Italian fare in Beijing. I recommend ordering a crisp pizza with thin dough bottom and rich stuffing. Save room for a delectable cannoli for dessert! These little devils are a tempting blend of cottage cheese and dried fruit with a touch of brandy in a fresh shell of fried dough. The staff here is super friendly, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself smiling throughout your entire experience there.

I am the stereotypical American girl. My daily diet favorites center on meat, bread, and cheese, and if it’s fried that’s even better. When I heard about Steak and Eggs, it didn’t take long before my wallet and I were on our way out the door. Offering classic American diner fare, this restaurant is the perfect place to grab an inexpensive Sunday breakfast. It’s also a great place for families! As the regular crowds of expats will confirm, the food here is extremely authentic. In one bite I was transported back to my native roots with my taste buds serving as the vehicle. The menu is chock-full of hearty burgers, apple pie and bottomless cups of coffee. Any American expat feeling homesick can come here for a little taste of comfort.

Element Fresh

The last place on my list today is Element Fresh. After getting my juicy, greasy, cheesy cravings satisfied, it’s equally important to find a place where I can just get a healthy, substantial meal. At Element Fresh, this is exactly what you will find, tons of variety and all delicious. Originally started in Shanghai, this restaurant provides nutritious Western food including salads, smoothies and sandwiches. They have a popular weekend brunch as well as including reasonably priced fare and quality drinks. I hope you get the chance to visit one or all of these places during your Beijing travels. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

 

 

The delights of Peking Duck

Duck is without doubt one of my favourite meats, and for this reason it only feels right to attribute an article to a classic Chinese dish, namely Peking Duck. Tke a China travel trip, and you will find duck restaurants nationwide so this dish is definitely a must-try on all China tours. This popular dish has certainly made itself known worldwide to the extent that the white duck is often seen as symbolic of China. Indeed, one way in which to totally engross oneself in Chinese culture is to sample this savoury dish.

The typical accompaniments to this dish consist of pancakes, trimmings of spring onion and cucumber sticks to give that extra crunch. Even the duck meat only comprises of about fifty percent of each slice with the crispy fat bringing out the flavours. Finally, sweet bean sauce is applied to top off the dish – let me add that (as I was corrected by a waitress) the sauce is for ‘dipping’ as opposed to ‘dripping’ on the pancake. When you bite in to the pancake expect a cool, sweet, slightly salty sensation as the ingredients combine to provide mouth-watering taste.

The beauty of this dish is this that customers can really experience the serving process. For instance, in many Peking Duck restaurants, the carving of the duck will actually be done in front of customers. It sure is a pleasure to see who the chefs, who are normally hidden in the kitchen can show their culinary skill by slicing through the duck ever so finely. The next part is where you come in. In traditional Chinese fashion, you and your friends will dine around a large table with a huge Lazy-Susan and share the dish. The duck per se, is generally presented on a dish which resembles a white Peking Duck. After that, the taste of the dish absolutely depends on how you arrange the ingredients!

In reference to one of my earlier articles, ‘Browsing Beijing’, I mentioned Quanjude restaurant which indeed ranks highly as a duck eatery. This is a well-established restaurant chain (founded in 1864) and serves over 2 million ducks yearly. Alas, prices at this restaurant do not come cheap, but this is quite obvious considering its reputation with many dignitaries having sampled Quanjude’s duck. For a more cost-effective solution, then note that there a surprising amount of local restaurants which serve duck even though it may not be the specialty dish. When all said and done, the next step is to book your China flights and absorb in the culinary delights of the delicious Peking Duck.

Beijing Hot Pot

When travelling to other countries one of the many highlights of every trip are usually the culinary delights of the region. People who travel to Beijing often want to try the famous Beijing Roast Duck and there is a huge choice of restaurants offering exactly that. The other thing you don’t want to miss is Chinese Hot Pot (huoguo, literally fire pot), a very popular restaurant experience for locals and tourists just the same. Having dinner together is a great way to spend a relaxing evening after exciting daytime activities, such as Beijing Tours, trips to museums and other interesting things. And having dinner in a Hot Pot restaurant are social gatherings rather than simple and quiet dinners and the food is often spicy and full of flavors.

Hot Pot is often eaten in winter but restaurants are in general well frequented all year around. It has a history of over one thousand years in China and the name describes the way the food is prepared. Different kinds of food are cooked in a broth which is kept simmering in a heated brass vessel on the table. The more original pots have a little chimney in the middle and are heated with hot coals whereas the more modern way is often heated with gas or can even be electric. There are two different main styles, Mongolian style und Sichuan style. While Sichuan tends to be very spicy the Mongolian variation uses broths mainly based on vegetables and seafood and is therefore the milder version.

There is a very large choice of ingredients that can be used for this dish. Most common are different kinds of thinly sliced meat, often it’s mutton meat but also beef, pork, chicken, lamb, goat and others can be ordered. Apart from meat slices you can have fish and seafood, small meat or fish balls and dumplings, different kinds of vegetables, such as mushrooms, lettuce, cabbage and other leafy greens, and also tofu, noodles or rice noodles. Cooking time can vary from less than a minute to several minutes and while you’re waiting you can try some little snacks and appetizers. Once the food is cooked to your taste it is dipped into different kinds of sauces, sesame sauce is a very common one.

In restaurants you can either have a big hot pot to share with all people at the table. Very often the big vessels have different sections with some milder and some spicier broths. Or you can order smaller individual ones so that everybody can choose their own broth. This is a great option for people who are allergic to certain foods or for vegetarians because all food can be kept separate. You just have to make sure that the broth doesn’t contain anything you can’t or don’t want to eat.

There is a countless number of Hot Pot restaurants not only in Beijing but also in other cities. Apart from the different flavors the interior of the restaurant and the price categories can also vary a lot. So if you have the time why don’t you try a few restaurants in different regions on your China Tours to find your favorite hot pot place?

When you go on your China travel there are a couple of activities you should try while you are visiting. The first activity is KTV known as Karaoke Television. The second is street food. You must try the street food. KTV and street food are very popular to the locals and to foreigners. Trying these two activities will be entertaining for you and the people who will come with you on your China tour.   

KTV is the Best way to send a night.

If you want to have fun like the local do then KTV is right for you. KTV stands for Karaoke Television. Instead of singing karaoke at a bar, here in China they rent out rooms for people to come and sing and dance. So if you just want to have fun times try KTV.

There are many reason why people go to KTV some of reason could be for a work party, or for a friends birthday party or just to be able to hangout with each other. Each group of people will get one room where all of their friends are and sing to each other their favorite’s songs. Each room has a big scene and a stage with a microphone. KTV will allow you to get your groove on and impress your friends. Foreigners love going to KTV because it is really fun way to send their time and they can feel like a small celebrity without being judged.

Street food is good-

Most cities in China will have street food able to you. Some cities will have night market where you can walk down a street of vendors and see the different street food that they are offering. Some of the foods you can try are star fish, snake, and frog, meat on a stick, dog, cat, sea horse, bugs and much more. If you don’t want to try a new adventure then you can get fruit with a sugar coating (these are really good) or yogurt.

If you are too scared to try these kinds of food you can always get a Chinese pancake.  These pancake are made with egg you can watch the person make it for you. They have a big circle grill where they pour the batter then they use a stick to make the batter circle. They will cook each side of it when it. You will have a choices of what you want to put in side of it lettuce or a meat. When it is all done the person making it will fold it up and give it to you. It will be nice and warm. These are good to eat whenever. Another food you should try is the China style burger. These are pitas filled with meat and lettuces. They are really good. So when you are in China make sure you try the street food.    

As you get off your China flight make note to try KTV and street food. Trying these two activities will allow you to be entertained. It will also help you understand Chinese cultural a little better. You might think that the street food is weird but many locals enjoy these kinds of food and eat it on a regular basic. So come to China and do what the locals do.

3) On an average day in Beijing air pollution is 5 times higher than the standard of safety set out by the World Trade Organisation.

When travelling to Beijing you are bound to notice the large amount of smog in the air, compared to western cities. This is because of the high volumes of pollution emitted.

4) Sharing is caring.

When you go to a restaurant in Beijing expect to order a variety of dishes that will be placed in the centre of the table, often on a Lazy Susan. This is because Chinese people see dining as a social pastime to enjoy with friends and family. Circular tables are often used as it allows you to communicate to every guest. Many of the dishes are shared between the entire group. This is great for tourists as it allows you to try a bit of everything.

5) Mr. Wang, Mrs. Wang…

According to the Beijing official census in 2006, ‘Wang’ is the most commonly used online slots surname in the city. In fact, 10.35% of the Beijing population has this surname. Therefore do not just assume Mr. Wang and Mrs. Wang are married, or any relation at all.

Crêpes With Peking Duck !!

On June 13, 2011, in Beijing, Cultural Experience, Restaurants & Food, Tips & Ideas, by Jack Li

Walking through any local “Chinatown” the signature duck hanging from the ceiling is what most would see when traveling through China.

Walking through any local “Chinatown” the signature duck hanging from the ceiling is what most would see when traveling through China. To experience this delicious roasted duck you should take a look at Beijing Tours and come experience it first hand by just booking anyone of China Flights.

During the early 15th century, the Ming Dynasty capital was shifted from Nanjing to Beijing, the imperial court menus left roast duck as one of the famous dishes. Beijing’s local history records the earliest roast duck which was located in Bianyifang Restaurant, which opened during the Jiajing reign (1522-1566). To create this meal, the duck is hooked on to a hook which is in the ceiling of the oven and roasted over and roasted over burning wood. All over China cooks would travelled to the capital Beijing to cook for the Emperor. It was a prestigious occupation as only the best chefs could enter the palace kitchens. A top cook was even able to reach the rank of a minister!

When I first got to Beijing all I heard about was “Peking Duck”, I first learned its history like I stated above and then I was on my way to try to roasted duck myself. I was excited to try a new style of duck. I have had duck before seeing that I come from the West Indies I practically grew up on curry duck. Having the chance to taste a new type of duck excited me and my taste buds. I was briefed on the proper way to eat such a meal with all the other add along and must haves. The meal came with thin crêpes, which I then learned are called pancakes, scallions, and other vegetables and sauces of choice.

Steps on how to eat Peking duck or creating the perfect set up. Pick up a pancake in one hand and, using a section of raw scallion as a brush, paint a few splashes of bean sauce on the pancake. Next, place the scallions in the center of the pancake, and with your chopsticks add a few pieces of duck, finally rolling it up into a Swiss style for the meal to blend as one. This sums up the most delicious Chinese meal when first experimenting with an authentic Chinese dish.

My first hand experience with Peaking Duck has definitely left me with wanting more. Planning a trip to China and not having the chance to try such an incredible, mouth watering meal would just be without feat. There are major differences when eating a Chinese meal in New York’s Chinatown, and eating an authentic Chinese meal in Beijing or any other city of choice in China. The ambiance, the smell, colors, and ongoing lists of different meals will leave you falling in love with such meal city, and country. If you are planning a trip to China I would recommended using  or going thought some of the offered tours on Beijing Tours. Happy travels and remember to be as open minded as possible.

Experience Night Beijing at the Donghuamen Street Market

On February 28, 2011, in Beijing, China Travel Gossip, Nightlife, by Jack Li

Before you come to Beijing, you surely have heard of the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, or the Summer Palace, and the alike. While Beijing, a city of abundant historical treasures, also has a dynamic night life. The street market is a part of this unique night culture of Beijing Tours. Donghuamen night market, down-town located north of the famous Wangfujing pedestrian promenade, is one of the most popular night markets that collects various snacks from all around China. If you are going to Travel to Beijing, add Donghuamen to your list of the “must-see” besides those antique sightseeings!

Speaking of the origin of Donghuamen night market, its history traces back to the Donghuamen market thirty years ago, even before the neighborhood of Wangfujing became a commercial center of this city. Dubbed as the best gourmet street in Beijing, Donghuamen enjoyed high reputation among both native “Beijingers” and tourists. The street opens at around 4:00 PM everyday beginning with the stalls along the street setting up. The turnover reaches the highest at 7 or 8 PM as the street becomes more and more crowded in the evening.

What makes Donghuamen distinct from other street markets is the great diversity of its foods. There are a wide variety of foods available, from scorpions to seahorses. By all means come here and eat the scorpion, the sea star, the seahorse, the chicken hearts, the cow stomach, the shark, the silk worm, the centipede, the octopus tentacles on a stick and all that good stuff.Explore the limits of your taste buds or courage at least. You will find many animals not on western menus. Bugs to snakes but there are also many of vegetables, fruits, and chicken available. Don’t worry about the cat and dog, those are actually delicacies and it would not be substituted for any kind of cheap meat. There are more to eat than just fried insects, and unmentionable creatures. Most of them are fried and oily. Some of the stall selling beef balls and fish balls in soup and it’s delicious and healthy. If you are a vegetarian, don’t worry! Lots of cut up fruit too! They string the fruits on a stick and coat with candy. It is easier to fall for the haw par fruit (or the Chinese calls it San Char or Bing Tang Hu Lu—crystalized sugar coated haws). Whilst the prices are higher than in many other street markets in Beijing, the food looked a much better quality and also very fresh. This place is a safe bet for some good food, and the prices are still comparatively low by western standards.

Donghuamen night market is not only a great way to try a variety food but also a good location you can hang around at downtown Beijing, stalls lined next to each other with anything you could want to try in China. There are some shops to explore around the market that are more brand names and not the knock off shops. If you can’t find something to eat here, there are options around the market.

The market can be seen in a mere fifteen minutes and the pictures are worth it as well as the experience of eating your first beetle. We explored this interesting market one night. Although we opted against trying the Seahorse kabobs, it was a great photo opportunity and worthwhile gastronomic adventure.

No Beijing Tours are complete without a trip and an adventure down a food street!

When travelling on your China Tours and you fancy some Italian Cuisine whilst in Beijing Tours, then Annie’s Restaurant is a place that I would recommend. This Italian restaurant chain is a mixture of relaxed casual dining entwined with elegant, mouthwatering food and delectable wines. Having received numerous awards including Best Italian and Outstanding Pizza this Italian Restaurant chain comes highly recommended. The Salmone Affumicato and the Fettucinni Con Branzino are recommended personally for a starter and main as there were both scrumptious, and for wine I would recommend the Grace Vineyard Premium Cabernet Merlot for Shanxi, which was not too heavy for a red wine. However the pizza’s here are good if you are looking for simple food or something less refined.

Annie’s is relatively expensive compared to many other restaurants that can be found in Beijing, however, the food, quality of service and atmosphere more than make up the difference in prices.

Each restaurant has various it own style of décor, so make sure you pick the right one to suit your mood. Here is a description of each restaurant style to help you decide which restaurant to visit for each occasion.

Annie’s Chaoyang Park

Annie’s Chaoyang Park is the headquarters, which was the first to open and receives the most guests. A family style restaurant, it is also the largest of Annie’s restaurants. Its decor is warm, with a strong family atmosphere. Dining here with friends can lead to a closer relationship; it’s just like a great feeling of being at home.

Annie’s Beijing Riviera

This village style restaurant. You will enjoy the pleasure of the large space of Annie’s Beijing Riviera at Laiguangying. Located far away from the noise of the city, you can totally relax and don’t need to worry about your conversations being overheard by people at the neighboring table. Old-fashioned wine cupboards add to the atmosphere of Eastern mysticism and Western aestheticis.

Annie’s SOHO

This restaurant in SOHO is a café style restaurant. It has warm features and a slight romantic setting. This is a good choice for those going for a meal with their significant other or for enjoying the company of one or two close friends.

Annie’s 3rd Ring Road

This restaurant is described as a romantic setting and is a favourite for couples looking for authentic Italian cuisine and passion. With ancient Oaks on the inside and a glass ceiling to see the illuminated stars whilst dining there could not be a more romantic environment.

Annie’s Rittan

Just out of the north gate of Rittan Park, this Annie’s is described as having a business environment. The décor is fashionable, elegant and naturally Italian. The party rooms are easily able to accommodate large groups of people up to 20 people per group. This is therefore a perfect place to hold a business lunch or dinner.

So the next time you are hungry on your Beijing Tours and feel like a good meal with friends in a comfortable atmosphere then one of Annie’s Italian restaurants is where you should go.

Food and Place to Eat

On December 15, 2010, in Cool Places, Cultural Experience, Restaurants & Food, by Jack Li

When on your China Tours there will be a variation of food, but if you Travel to Beijing there is a variety of places to satisfy your palate here.  The range of food is astonishing from Peking duck to chicken chow mien; from fried rice to dumplings the food that Beijing has to offer is exquisite. Completely different from the Chinese food that you get at home. Myself I’m not much of a rice or noodle eater having grown up on potatoes for most of my life, but the way they cook their food here in Beijing, it is something else. I look forward to trying a new dish each time I have a meal.

With the variety of food here you will never get bored as there is food here for every type of person, whether you’re a big meat eater or a vegetarian, you will not be disappointed.  And even better it is inexpensive, having gone to a few local restaurants the average price of my meal has been around 20rmb-30mrb (£2-£3), where can you get that in the UK except at McDonalds. It really is a bargain. Obviously though, the more formal restaurants with uniformed staff will be more expensive, but to make up for this they do provide a more varied menu. International cuisine here will always be the most expensive.   

 Here are a couple of places that I recommend to eat when you are next in Beijing.

Drum and Gong

One of the most popular restaurants in Beijing, and rightly so, the food at the Drum and Gong is a fusion of Asian food with an emphasis on Sichuan flavours, and it is delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, so this is a perfect place to bring the family or just to relax with good friends. The staff can understand English and the menu is bilingual, therefore not making your dining experience a guessing game if you don’t know any Mandarin. For those who do not like spicy food the menu has a rating system to allow you to identify the spicy dishes so you can avoid them.

Address: 102 Nanluogo Xiang, Gulou

The Red Rose

Located opposite the North Gate of the Workers stadium the Red Rose specializes in depanji (chicken with handmade noodles and vegetables), roast goat and the always popular lamb kebabs. It is a great place if you are looking for a lively evening as the restaurant has shisha on demand, entertains its guests with a variety of song and dance routines as well as belly dancers. If however, you are looking for a quiet meal, the Red Rose is most likely not the place for you as it can get very noisy here.

Address: 7 Xiang Yican, Sanlitum, Gongti

Noodle Loft

If you are looking for a more upmarket restaurant to visit in Beijing then Noodle Loft is the place to go. Its refined, has delicious food and theatrics to entertain you when you are dining. It truly is a wonder; the chefs here are miracle workers turning dough into delicious Shangxi-style noodles. If you decide to visit this restaurant I would also recommend trying the hot pear cider with fresh pear cubes and tremella, a very refreshing and tasty beverage.

Address: 20 Xi Dawang Lu CBD, Chaoyang District, Beijing

The next time you are on your Beijing Tours even if you are not a very adventurous person with your food, try some of the local cuisine, you will be surprised by how good it is, and it will make you want to be more open to different foods in the future.
