Eating and Drinking, Beijing: 26 reviews and 53 photos
Favorite thing: Ok , a lesson, when you say chinese food, it just does mean chinese food but what Chinese Cuisine? ok! Chinese food is not monotonous as there are 16 Basic Chinese Styles of Cuisine like Cantonese, Sichuan, Shandong, Liaoning, Fujian, Hunan, Hainese and Beijing. A Tip, chinese food in Americas and Europe is just Cantonese Cuisine with a little spicy Sichuan in between ok!
Beijing cuisine is an amalgamation of other great chinese cuisines of china and among it's influence are Shandong, liaoning and Sichuan. Beijing Cuisine is basically less on rice and more on dark soy paste, sesame paste, sesame oil, and scallions, and fermented tofu and spices hence you get not stir fried as the cantonese but more Stewed and Spicy and also sour at times. Examples of Beijing Cuisine are Peking Duck, Hot and Sour SOup and Boiled Pork. Since your in Beijing you must try Beijing Cuisine besides the ubiquitous Peking Duck ok!
Ok I Admit, For me Cantonese and Fujian Cuisine are better ok hehehe.
