Respond to Review of CLOSED: Still Thoughts- Dongcheng
Review: Without question, the culinary highlight of my trip to Beijing. The food was outstanding - absolutely blew away Pure Lotus. It's a cute little place, with a huge selection. Favorites included: the Black Pepper beef and the Spicy Fish. I usually don't like mock meat fish, but this one hit the spot. Oh, and don't miss the Fried Pumpkin slices, essentially Pumpkin French Fries with salt. We devoured them. If there's one negative to this place, it's the lack of vegetable dishes. Almost every dish has mock meat, which makes it hard to balance out. Would have been nice to get a bit of green in the meal! Really reasonable. We had six dishes between four of us, and paid the equivalent of $8 U.S. each.
