Mifan or Mafan: The Great Outdoors x Foam Lab

By Mollie Gower, July 12, 2019

Setting up a second shop closer to Chaoyang Park, Fangjia favorite The Great Outdoors has moved in with craft brewers Foam Lab to create a relaxing atmosphere ideal for party animals and families alike. With two floors and a (great) outdoor patio, complete with a grill, it looks like this dynamic duo has some ideas brewing on using its space to the fullest, having already hosted a Super Mario Bros-themed bash at the venue last month. 

We start with the Baked Potato Wedges Bolognaise with Cheese (RMB44), which we enjoy on the plant-filled patio with a cool beer. Next is a decent serving of Italian salami pizza (RMB88) and a chicken “fusion” quesadilla (RMB38), which is really just jianbing – we’re not complaining. The beer is what you expect from a brewery that is steadily creating a brand (with a little help from its friends) – classic brews infused with daring flavors. All in all, not too shabby of a late afternoon turned into an impromptu late night.
