The Grandma's (外婆家), Beijing

Apart from Hangzhou and Shanghai, Grandma Kitchen () outlet is also located along Beijing's pedestrian street - Wangfujing (). This outlet, like those in other cities, was still very popular. Throngs of diners were queueing patiently to get a table and the wait was worth it. 

Without any hesitation, we ordered some of our favourite dishes, including the Spicy Potato Slices in Claypot (干锅土豆). Priced at RMB18, this was absolutely delicious. The sauce was rich and spicy. The potato slices were just right. You can eat them on its own. (Food rating: 4.5/5)

Hangzhou Braised Duck (杭州卤鸭) was one of the highlights. The duck meat was extremely tender and the rich sweet aroma in the duck was extremely addicting. We kept eating until it was all gone. (Food rating: 4/5)

Fried Chinese Long Beans with Red Chilli is highly recommended. I loved the crunchy texture of the beans and the spicy sauce blended very well with the vegetables. More importantly, the long beans did not have a raw taste but had the nice fragrance. Simply unforgettable. (Food rating: 4/5)

The Tomato with Egg Soup was a simple home-style soup that had a very nice subtle fragrance. The tomato chunks were sweet and fresh. The overall soup was unforgettable. (Food rating: 4.5/5)

避风塘豆腐鱼 was cooked in Cantonese style. The specialty was the garlic. This dish was crispy fish, garlic and spicy. (Food rating: 3/5)

Grandma's Rice Cakes (外婆年糕) was made of glutinous rice cakes drizzled with rich saccharine syrup and then sprinkled with nice smelling osmanthus flowers. The dessert was very sweet but the sweet-smelling osmanthus flowers were extremely fragrant. (Food rating: 4/5)
