Xi He Ya Ju restaurant 羲和雅居 Beijing Reviews
Sep 24, 2007
I had been to this restaurant several times in previous trips to Beijing too. I highly recommend this restaurant. The restaurant is pretty large, with a nice garden section and a Chinese style gate. Kind of styled after a large home.
Its roast duck is so tender, the skin practically melts in your mouth. It comes with several sauces to dip in, and the presentation is very well done indeed. The duck is roasted in a wood oven, which you can see as you walk to your table.
Other dishes are also delicious. You might want to try the "water boiled fish", basically a live fish (which they bring to your table for examination) in a pot of red peppers! They will remove the peppers before serving. The fish is very hot/spicy, but real good!
For a beer, my friends ordered Yieng Ging Beer (approximate sound only) or 燕京啤酒 which they enjoyed. A most delicious meal for 4 with beer turned out to be only around $100 USD.
