Pictorials are mostly for travels and events where I simply post a gallery of images and captions. This pictorial features photos from my recent trip to Beijing in November 2013. Not included is our memorable experience at Da Dong restaurant, which I will review separately. All in all, the street food that was sold in Beijing is kind of wierd, more like a tourist attraction as opposed to being actual food. I have never ever seen anyone buying a scorpion/starfish skewer from the many stalls. Traditional zha jiang mian (老北京炸酱面) was very very bland on the 2 occasions I tried. Our only saving grace was our high-end meal at Da Dong and 2 lunches at a hunan style restaurant.
