Steak and Eggs, Beijing: 3 reviews and 2 photos

Beijing's only (?) American diner, Steak and Eggs is a good place for brunch.
They have a massive diner-style menu under the glass table tops, and it's all "home-cooking style and never mind the chloresterol".
The restaurant recently came runner up in the 'That's Beijing' 2004 Restaurant of the Year competition, but this is taking it all a bit too far: yes, good pancakes, bacon and fried eggs...but the second best restaurant of the year? I think not. It also won best service, which is just laughable. Every time I have been there, one or more dishes have been missed or were late, or the coffee never turned up (today) despite asking three times.
In the winter try and avoid the outer room as the cold air rushes in through the badly-fitting front doors.
Sunday brunch (yes it won that as well) is always packed out, so come early or be prepared to wait.

Favorite Dish: Everything is pretty good...staple jumbo all-day breakfast, pancakes and a huge variety of pies.
