For the past 10 years, I’ve called Beijing my home. I’ve eaten in a lot of restaurants, been to a lot of places and experienced life living like a local. If you plan to visit Beijing, the top 4 places to visit would be Forbidden City, Great Wall (Mutianyu section please!), Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. However, if you talk about food, I give you fast 5 of Chinese cuisine you must try in Beijing:
When the dark restaurant became a fad in Beijing, my Friday dining group went to one of these restaurants to experience it. It was relatively expensive as the waiters need to wear night vision goggles to lead you to your table and serve your food. You order and pay for your food at the lobby area and leave your things in the locker before they lead you to your seats. It was messy, fun and quite an experience. You get to appreciate more those who were born with visual difficulties.
Happy Birthday Maya!
It was Maya’s birthday last May 15 and she treated us for drinks at Aria. Lots of people and free-flowing drinks. Maya look beautiful and glowing. Marco and her were joking to each other that they’ll have babies together. It was a fun night but my stomach overruled my plan to stay.
So, I stayed till 830pm and left with Ken & Bianca. They both introduced me to Duck De Chine. This restaurant is located in the hidden city at the back of Pacific Plaza in Sanlitun. The surroundings is quite nice and would be perfect for a garden wedding. It has a homey feel and serenity that is hard to find in a bustling city like Beijing. The ambiance inside the restaurant is one of elegance and quiet beauty. Brown bricks, red lamps, champagnes in cabinets and black cloth tables. This would be the duck place I’ll bring my visiting friends.Continue reading “Duck De Chine”
