This is the second of three posts on where I plan to eat in Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau during my two week trip in October. Part of the fun of traveleating is the planning stage, and more than anything, I love researching local food shops, markets, cafés and restaurants.

Then onto the huge task of trying to finalise the Hong Kong list!

As the Olympics start in a few days, I thought I’d write up my notes on the Beijing restaurants and eateries that I hope to visit in October as part of a two week trip to Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing. Although it’s only the first draft of the list, it might be useful to visitors to Beijing during and after the Olympics. I’ve consulted friends and family out there, and read many online reviews…
Here’s a recipe from my mother for a simple Cantonese dish that transports me right back to my childhood. It was one of three or four dishes served at dinner, along with steamed white rice. She makes different versions of it, sometimes using dried scallops, sometimes dried shrimp, but whatever ingredients she uses, the basic steamed egg is the same – light, healthy and above all, delicious!
