Here, a roundup of things we ate and gossiped about this month – for journalism, for research, for you, readers. 


March goes in like a lion, and out like a skewer of lamb. That’s how the saying goes in Beijing, anyway, when warmer weather means we just might be able to eat our chuan’r outdoors again. (OK, maybe April’s more realistic – but hey, soon.)

In our final frosty weeks before the veil is lifted, however, Beijing’s got plenty of new indoor options. Hell, Beijing is an inside-person’s paradise! Indoors-lovers can even feel like they’re appreciating Mother Nature at The Lounge, with its spectacular view from the 63rd floor of Park Hyatt. Chef Jack Jia’s new menu is both healthy and hearty – try the flower crab soup with steamed rice to see what we mean.  

Village Café is also going for the healthy, hearty vibes with a new ‘healthy lunch set,’ featuring the best damn coconut soup in town, plus your choice of scrumptious steamed fish or the minute steak. But if all of this sounds too wholesome for you, no worries – VC’s neighboring bar, Mesh, has launched ‘Punch Pop,’ a night dedicated to massive punch bowls and throwback jams, every Thursday (we dare you not to leave drunk).

Hatsune joins the ranks of popular Beijing restaurants opening in Wangfujing with its slick new location in WF Central. Plus, they’re never not rolling out a specialty, well roll – stop by and try the ones you haven’t yet.

In brunch news, Sureño has upgraded their weekend selections, and if you don’t get the seafood tower, what are you doing? Plus Beersmith now has a Sunday roast-inspired spread – and all-you-can-slurp laobeijing yogurts.
