Old Beijing Hot Pot (老北京火锅) Posted by on Jan 20, 2011 in Uncategorized

While there are countless options for fine dining in Beijing, one of the best places to go for a good meal is Ghost Street (簋街). Here, you can find many great restaurants, including plenty of places specializing in hot pot. Your table is turned into a stove top, a massive bowl of broth is brought out, you take your pick of a variety of meats, vegetables, and noodles, and then you do the cooking yourself. Delicious and fun, a nice hot pot dinner is the perfect remedy for the blistering cold Beijing winter.
