Snacks and the City: The Latest Food & Drink News in Beijing

Here’s a roundup of things we’ve tried this month – for journalism, for research, for you, readers. 


Bottega’s new brunch is for pigging out on pigs. The porchetta, juicy with thick, crispy skin, is the gorgeous brainchild of new chef Marco (but don’t worry, Paulo’s still in the kitchen making pizzas).

TRIBE’s fun new menu is naturally purple and healthily fishy. Get the Mighty Mackerel & Arugula Salad to see what we mean.

Obentos now has one of the best poke bowls we’ve had. And we’ve had a lot of poke bowls.

We’re not huge soup people (who is?!), but Village Café’s Tom Kha Gai has us singing a different tune. Can more soups have a coconut base, please?

EQUIS has launched ‘Social Nights’ on Tuesdays, with the aim of making weekdays just as fun as the weekends. It is almost too social, in that we could barely handle ourselves around that much Champagne and beautiful people. Have more self control than us, or plan on being late to work on Wednesday.

Hutong’er Pie now delivers to the capital of Hebei province. If you don’t know what the capital of Hebei is, shame on you. Baidu it.

Migas (Sanlitun) has a new brunch concept, La Granja Farmer’s Brunch, and we’ve been told to expect ‘pigs, chickens and drinks.’ Not sure what that means, other than a good time. (Brunch at Migas is always a good time.)

On a final, sadder note – we wished Xian’s Craft Container goodbye (for now) as it popped down for winter, which is not the greatest season in Beijing to be drinking craft beer on a patio, we’ve been told. But better news – Xian will be hosting our very own That’s Beijing Golden Fork Restaurant Awards on December 6. Stay tuned for for our list of winners.
