It started with living in Beijing Series, then it pivot to food. LOL 😝
Easter in China is celebrated in a far different way from most western countries.
Firstly, the Chinese do not celebrate Easter.
Secondly, you don't get Easter holidays, which means you don't one week off. Unless you work in an international school.
So what can you do?
You can go to the church. Usually there are be Easter church service organized by the Beijing International Christian Fellowship or the catholic churches in Beijing. Or you can spend the Sunday with family and friends.
Some restaurants of cafes in Sanlitun might have a special promotion going on, so you should definitely check out some of the expat websites if there are any Easter dinner specials.
My Easter is celebrated in a different way. First of all, I am quite thankful that i don't have to work during this weekend. So the Friday itself was a TGIF for me!
Ladies and gentleman, this is when my auto pilot fingers just write about food.
I met up with my Aussie bestie and had lunch at Wudaokou.
She was craving for Korean food while I wanted salad. Wudaokou is known to have a lot of Korean restaurants. If you’re wondering why there are lots of Korean restaurants in certain parts of Beijing, I would need to save it for another post but to cut a long story short, there are lots of Koreans in Beijing.
Having lunch with my friend
This is Bree, my friend and coursemate for four years in Beijing. She is currently part of the events management team for the British Chambers of Commerce in Beijing and a trainer for the F45 Training Center in Beijing . An expat in China for 5 years, she is not a regular Aussie because she speaks fluent Chinese.
Now the star....
Look at this Beauty...
Food: Cheesy Rice cake with chicken
I'm giving a 4 star because It's not fine dining, so you can't really expect the food to look really neat. But it makes you hungry when the plate arrives.
It has a little smoky taste to it because it is on a hot plate so it still sizzles a bit.
hint: For this dish, it is best to serve on a hot plate, if i see any restaurant that serves this on a regular ceramic plate I would give it a pass, Rice cakes are not delicious when eaten cold.
check out this beautiful fruit salad
Not the cheapest but reasonable. We paid about 12 USD each for a bowl of rice, a messy beef dish with spinach (we ate before the camera gets to eat it , a generous plate of fruit salad and cheesy rice cake
Will I come back again??
Yes, If i run out of Korean restaurants to try. LOL
There are lots of Korean Restaurants operated by Koreans themselves. A lot of them come to Beijing and make a living here. And of course, the taste is better than the Korean franchise restaurants in certain places. If you see the Koreans come here to eat, the taste is legibly approved by them of course =)
