Beijing Eats, Part One

Airplane food (IAD to PEK)
Surprisingly, not bad. Helps if you're flying business class I guess. :) There was smoked salmon and salami, mustard chicken and potatoes with a Kabinett riesling for dinner. Before we landed I had the fruit plate with croissant, yogurt and tea. Max had the sandwich and potatoes instead.

Frank's Place
The location has changed and the atmosphere is much nicer now. Bruce ordered the half. Turned out to be half a liter, not half a pint. I had the schnitzel and mashed potatoes. Kristina had the spaghetti bolognese.

The Noodle Loft
The best! We ate here twice... great food and you get to watch them make it. My favorite was the noodle made by one chopstick with vegetables. Max's favorite is the one long noodle (green because of spinach) with pork sauce. Kristina's favorite was the hand plucked noodle pieces with spicy sauce. We all like the potato cake, the oil ball (red bean paste donuts), and the candied yams.

Pastries from the Wangfujing Mall

We also went to Starbucks twice but there's no pictures of that. Same for the awesome dim sum that we had with Max's family. To be continued...
