Beijing Day 6: Dinner in a Szechuan Restaurant in Oriental Mall

Day’s 6 dinner, we went to a Szechuan restaurant in the Oriental Mall. This restaurant has a very oriental feel to it.


The good thing about restaurant here is that they have a photo menu displayed at the restaurant front. You can browse through the menu before deciding to go in or not.


For drinks, I ordered a red dates drink (on the left). It was thick and mildly sweet. Red dates are good for blood circulation.


We ordered 3 dishes to share. For appetizer, we ordered some kind marinated meat and egg dish.


Our main dish is a called “Ma La Xiang Guo”. It’s a numbing spicy dish in a pot. It has various meat, vegetables and tofu in it. We simply love this dish.


To counter the spiciness of the “Ma La Xiang Guo”, we had a simple braised Suey Choy hearts with garlic. It came with some mung bean noodles in the center. It is slightly spicy. A well executed dish.

The bill came to RMB245 (about CAD41). It’s one of the more expensive meal that we had in Beijing.

    Nice post. Were the Suey Choy hearts serve hot or cold?
