Food in Beijing - Beijing Shi
Food in Beijing

Favorite thing: There is food everywhere in this city. Afterall, the Middle Kingdom is known for its cuisine. The key question travelers always asked is, “Is it safe?” “Is it clean?” With e coli scare frequent even in countries like USA, what about food here?

Well, in a big city like Beijing, one needs to have common sense. If one is going into a tiny local joint, it might not be a good idea to ask for ice with one’s soda. As what kind of water is used to make that ice? Who knows!

If one is to eat sushi, it is best to try for a more authentic Japanese restaurant. Local fares, as long as it is fully cooked, it is up to one’s preference to try for the exotic such as silk worm cocoon or lamp spinal cord hot pot.

Because of the water, the first few days one arrives here, one is either pre-deposited to either have some tummy trouble (diarrhea or in the case, constipation.) But this is to be expected. The local drug stores do sell effective herbal tea that can help gently as laxative.
