Noodle Loft - Best Noodle Restaurant in Beijing - Mianku - 面酷山西食艺


The simple noodle dishes of the Shanxi province, which is situated just to the west of Beijing, are the speciality of Noodle Loft. The restaurant is considered outrageously overpriced by locals, but this place is no ordinary noodle stand. It’s a huge space with an open noodle bar on the first floor, where fresh noodles are stretched and pulled, and a comfortable dining area on the second floor. Daoxiao mian (knife-shaved noodles) are a trademark of Shanxi. The noodles come with a sauce of your choice: minced meat sauce, tomato and egg or vinegar. An English menu makes ordering easy. Highlights include yi ba zhua (fried wheat cakes with chives), qiao mian mao erduo (cat's ear-shaped pasta stir-fried with chopped meat), and suancai tudou (vinegared potato slices).

Maison Boulud à Pékin by Celebrity Chef Daniel Boulud - 北京布鲁宫法餐厅




Daniel Boulud, a Michelin two-star chef known for his signature restaurant Daniel in New York, opened the doors of Maison Boulud, his seventh restaurant, in June 2008 in the heart of Beijing. The eatery is his first outside the United States.

Maison Boulud is located in one of five buildings in a compound that housed the U.S. Embassy in Beijing from 1903 to 1949, and which has been converted into an upmarket development called the Legation Quarter, just east of Tiananmen Square. The renovation looks lovely, and as you enter the restaurant you come into a large reception hall with an impressive double staircase at the back, with the reception desk to the left. Further to the left, through a doorway, is the bar area, with lots of sleek looking tables and chairs and a nice, though smallish, bar.

The summer menu at Maison Boulud, with 428 yuan ($63) for a fixed price set, features dishes such as roasted beet salad with Chinese black walnut goats' cheese and crispy suckling pig with daikon sauerkraut.

The history of the building is impressive. Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger secretly met Chinese premier Zhou Enlai there in 1971, a year before President Richard Nixon's visit to China.

The compound, built in 1903 by American architect Sid H. Nealy, also houses Japanese restaurant Shiro Matsui, run by Hong Kong restaurateur David Yeo, and Sadler, with two Michelin-star Italian chef Claudio Sadler.Also in the compound is a Patek Philippe shop, so if you have money left over after dinner, you can spend it there
