Seeing it is now April, we should soon be able to find out if we will get the tickets to the Olympic Games or not. I really, really, DESPERATELY hope that we will get them, seeing that we have already paid for them, and for our flight tickets. When it comes to accommodation, I am relying on my old Beijing friend, Panda (no, she's not a Panda, Panda is her name). Panda’s a star when it comes to finding budget alternatives.
I was thinking about Beijing the other day. About my favourite area around the Hou Hai lake (north of Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City) and about all the yummy foods u can eat over there. Yeah, I am a big fan of Beijing food. Compared to Shanghai’s sickening sweet seafood, Beijing dumplings and noodles is like a sent from heaven.
Yes. It's tiny.
Speaking of food, if you are heading over, for the Olympics or for some other occasion, don’t miss out on this yummy little joint: 10 m². It serves up the spiciest and most delicious vegetables you can think of! Think cucumber, eggplant and mushroom, spiced up to its max and you’ll get an idea what I am talking about. Nothing for the faint hearted or for claustrophobic people (the space is –as the name implies- only 10m²) but definitely worth a visit if you want to trigger your taste buds.
Wall of fame...
I left my taste opinion posted on the wall. (Gosh, I write like a 5-year-old...)
