The cold is beginning to bite in Beijing. But don't let that stop you from heading out to try new food and drink in the capital this November. If anything, we'd say it's all the more reason to cosy up with a delicious new dish, tasty cocktail or whatever tickles your fancy.

Meanwhile, everybody's favorite Mexican bar and grill Q MEX has opened its fifth location in Beijing. Located in Solana shopping mall, it's their largest place to date. Head their for the usual hearty Mexican dishes, as well as some new additions to the menu. 

Whatever you decide to try this month, we hope you find something and somewhere to keep you warm as the notorious Beijing winter begins to take hold.

One of Beijing’s most buzzing hutong locations is celebrating its tenth anniversary!

To celebrate, a new menu has been launched with an array of delectable Spanish dishes including mixed herb meatballs, mixed platter, Spanish seafood paella, seasoned deep-fried beef steak and more. 


The Opposite House


‘Drink Local’ is a new cocktail menu from Superfly with carefully-crafted drinks designed to give customers a taste of Beijing in the 80s and 90s. 

Drinks like BERRY NICE are made with a combination of rum, mulberry, smoked plum, blueberry juice, blackcurrant liqueur and egg white.

Kudos to the legendary Han Meimei, leading character of middle school English textbooks for the 80s generation. The flavors of dark berries are carried throughout the BERRY NICE cocktail, pairing with the tropical sensation of rum to give you a balanced and smooth cocktail. The presentation may bring a bit of childhood nostalgia to you.
