  • Blocked?
    on Mar 23, 2010 in Uncategorized
    Hrmmm… not to give up before I’ve really even started, but it appears that this blog is being caught up in the GreatFireWall of China. Not sure why, but until I sort it out I’m holding tight on a few reviews. Not much point in blo...
  • Wen Xiang Qu
    on Mar 1, 2010 in Restaurants
    THE SCOOP: Located on the South end of Nanluoguxiang, two doors down from 12SQM, Wen Xiang Qu offers “homestyle Chinese cooking” to the throngs that swarm this popular street. Last Friday, after deciding to take a break from the Sanlitun...
  • Zu Lin Xiao Can – Chongqing Hotpot (but avoid the pot)THE SCOOP: I’ve previously mentioned Hai Di Lao hotpot.  Its considered by many to be the best Beijing has to offer, and is always packed to the gills.  They don’t take reservations and its not unusual to wait an hour or two on a weeken...
  • Laburnum: Bu Thai Hao
    on Feb 8, 2010 in Restaurants Laburnum Thai
    THE SCOOP: A recent addition to the Gongti (Worker’s Stadium) food scene, Laburnum looks impressive from the outside.  It appears massive and is dramatically lit at night – looking not unlike a Thai palace one might find in Bankok itself...
  • My Take: Dian Cao Xiang – Yunnan Hotpot
    on Feb 1, 2010 in Restaurants hot pot Yunnan
    THE SCOOP: Beijing is awash in quality hotpot places.  Hai Di Lao is the standard bearer, against which all other experiences are measured, but there are still lots of great options around town, from Little Sheep to Rock My Pot to Shin Kong Place...
  • Oldies: The One Where I Had Culture Shock
    on Jan 29, 2010 in Oldies 5 Guys burgers US
    Almost done with the cross-post oldies.  This one from March of 2009 when I returned to the US for a visit. ——– A lifetime ago I was in the Army. For 5 years, no less. This is often a shock for people who only know me as old, soft,...
  • Oldies: The One Where Twitter Freaked Me Out
    on Jan 29, 2010 in Oldies Kindle Twitter
    One last rerun, this from April of 2009.  It has nothing to do with food, Beijing, or anything.  It truly is filler.  Plus since then I’ve come to love Twitter and, in fact, tweet all of my bathroom visits proudly now. ———&...
  • Oldies: The One Where I Got Rubbed By A Guy
    on Jan 29, 2010 in Oldies Massage
    Another oldie.  New stuff coming soon.  This is filler, eh. ———– It started innocently enough. It’d been a very long day. I’m heading back to the US in a few days, and my Mom wanted me to bring back some wall-han...
  • My Take: Chef Too
    on Jan 29, 2010 in Restaurants BBQ Chef Billy Chef Too Ribs
    THE SCOOP: Chef Too’s mission statement seems straight-forward enough:  “American Cuisine a la New York City style – only the freshest chilled beef, seafood, farm fresh vegetables and house made desserts.  The philosophy is simple...
  • Oldies: The One About Absinthe & TUN
    on Jan 29, 2010 in Bars Oldies Absinthe TUN
    Another oldie from another blog, for the sake of filler.  Also from February of 2009. ———- This was a weekend oriented around some interesting “firsts.” Friday night I went out with some friends to a local watering hole...
