I visited Beijing in the fall of 2012 again. This trip was merely to spend time there with Ben; not so much for site seeing. Anyway, it was very cold even it’s just November. Most of the days were below zero.
My first meal was my favourite Malaxiangguo. This dry spicy dish consists of pork belly, fish tofu, enoki mushroom, cabbage, lotus root, etc. The choice of ingredients is up to the customer. This dish was RMB168 (CAD28) and it’s good for two.
Ben bought some Beijing snacks for me to snack on.
We bought a steamed cheesecake from Paris Baguette for breakfast. It was RMB12 (CAD2). It’s like Japanese style cheesecake.
We had lunch at the Food Republic at Continental Plaza. The above is Ben’s favourite noodle stall.
The above was a spicy numbing dry mix noodle with ground pork. It is just RMB18 (CAD3).
The above was a combo meal for 2 from Kung Fu. All the above for RMB51 (CAD8.50). It comprises of double boiled pork soup, steamed egg with minced pork; braised chicken and shiitake mushroom, rice with pork belly, tofu and chili stirfry, oyster sauce lettuce, a side of preserved vegetable (“mui choy”) and a dessert soup.
