Beijing - Shanxi food & regional Chinese food

Jump to last reply

We are off to Beijing for a few days and looking forward to eating some of the heartier Northern Chinese food I love. Does anyone have any recommendations for good local places (not Peking duck restaurants) serving casual food from Beijing, Dongbei, Gansu, Shanxi...etc? If they don't speak English or have an English menu it's no problem. We just aren't interested in southern Chinese food (Cantonese) or Shanghainese style.

In particular we love 刀削面 - any recommendations near Chao Yang greatly appreciated.

We'd like some good Tibetan food as well. After some research I have found Makye Ame - 玛吉阿米, but other suggestions would be great. I was a bit disappointed by the "Tibetan" place I found in Shanghai that didn't serve Yak.
