Best Veg Ever (don't tell anyone)
Posted on 08 / 30 / 2011
I go to Beijing once per year. I am sure some of you have reasons that certain spots are better than others. I can't speak for everyone, but this is the best vegetarian dining experience anywhere I have visited. The food is sublime, the service is excellent and the decor is very peaceful and relaxing. I never filled my own tea cup - the servers were really amazing. I love the neighborhood, too.
I have eaten here every year for 3 years running and it is consistent. I usually order 3 or more dishes, so that I can mix things up. So far, I have not been able to talk my meat-eating friends into going, so it's just me so far. I would suggest this for business clients who are flexible/ folks who would appreciate something different. This year, I ate there 3 nights, as I just got sick of choosing pork, fish, chicken, beef... at the other places around town. As a vegetarian, it's way too hard eating traditional restaurants especially when I don't speak anything but English.
What a magnificent treat. It's well worth the effort to find this spot (walk fron subway-Lufang Station). But, don't tell too many people (I am fighting with myself to keep this a secret or tell the world - Ha ha)!
great food, great selection, great service
location not central
