We’re still working our way through the new restaurants in Sanlitun’s Topwin Center. If you are too, here’s a life hack: Head to the third floor and hit up Beyond Yakitori

Chris, the owner of Beyond Yakitori

While traditional skewers are cooked with aplomb, it’s the inventive signatures that have us excited. Marked ‘beyond’ on the menu, the restaurant’s original creations include chicken skin with ponzu sauce and orange peel (RMB22), miso cream cheese (RMB22) and a gooey yakitori Scotch egg (RMB38).

Extra points for great service and the unexpectedly sumptuous salted chicken neck (RMB16).
