Beijing has many great places to eat; you can indulge in chinese for weeks on end or treat yourself to some interesting takes on western food. The choices are endless, however when you live here you find yourself going back to the same places as you know they serve great food! In Shijingshan there are some great chinese restaurants, much cheaper than downtown. But downtown there is pizza!!! Pizza occassionally rules our life...China does not really do ovens so cooking certain foods is hard. Some know there is nothing better than coming home after a shit day and sticking a frozen pizza in the oven, twenty minutes later and with some ketchup you have a meal fit for kings. Not so easy in Beijing! However we have found some great pizza in this town and I have to say they are pretty impressive pizzas...I'm talking about size here...they are huge! I love pizza, I'm intolerant to cheese which makes eating pizza even more tempting. But enough about pizza, there is plenty on offer in Beijing. From sky high burgers, to sizzling fajitas, to great hot pot, steak and chips, lasagna, cheap noodles, and of course some Beijing Duck! So here are a few places where we go to indulge!
Tube Station Workers Stadium Biggest pizza's out there!
Haidailao Wanda Plaza Shijingshan

La Bamba Huaqingjiayuan East Gate, Wudaokou Good gin and tonics and decent mexican food and impressive burgers!
