The widespread popularity of Guizhou cuisine and its trademark spicy-sour flavors prompted three Guizhou artist friends to set up shop in Beijing (their paintings and sculptures decorate the dining area). There are many dishes here to recommend, but among the best are "beef on fire" (pieces of beef placed on a bed of chives over burning charcoal) accompanied by ground chilies; pork ribs; spicy lamb with mint leaves; the region's signature suantangyu (fish in a spicy-sour
soup), and mi doufu, a rice-flour cake in spicy sauce.
