In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Southern Beauty - 俏江南

My last post from Beijing is at a Szechuan place called 俏江南 (Southern Beauty). Thanks again to my Uncle John for taking us out.

This was probably the spiciest dish and very tasty. The pork rolls weren't spicy but very refreshing and delicious. The fish in oil LOOKS the spiciest, but actually wasn't. It was really good, but as usual I'm very lazy when it comes to picking out fish bones. Still very addictive though. Dan dan noodles were awesome. Good noodles, nice spicy/nutty kick. Potstickers were excellent. I've come to conclude you can't find a bad bun (or anything wrapped really) in all of Beijing. Next up is Hong Kong...
