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

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.
