Before I go on any trip, I like to plan where and what to eat during my travels. I can do ‘spontaneous’ now and then, but I generally prefer to know where I’m going to be eating! 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…

What do Chinese restaurants offer the discerning vegetarian? I’ve been giving this a lot of thought lately, because we’re going on a two week trip to Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing this October, and I’m going to have to do some serious research to find suitable eateries for vegetarian husband. I’ve been thinking about all the Chinese restaurants we’ve visited in London, and what dishes he particularly enjoys, so that I can find similar (or far better!) ones in China. Although I lived in Beijing for two years and have visited Hong Kong many times in the past, it’s been over a decade since my last trip, and I never had to worry about feeding a vegetarian!

Baozi Inn, recently opened in Chinatown, was recommended by a friend who tries all the latest Chinese restaurants before I do (which really helps me!). It also received a positive review in Time Out, so off I went to investigate, accompanied by a Japanese friend…

My mother and I haven’t lived together for many years now, so I always look forward to her home-cooked meals. They remind me of my childhood, so when we see each other, I always ask her to cook the same few favourites that I grew up on. I never get bored of them.

Every Chinese family has their special recipes and slightly different methods of preparing a particular dish. Dinner table conversations are all about where the ingredients were bought, and how each dish was created. Here are my favourites (click on each for full recipes). Together, they would make a substantial meal, served with steamed white rice. In fact, this would be my perfect home-cooked meal!…

Pearl Liang sesame paper prawn

My family and I went to Pearl Liang for dinner a few nights ago. I recently raved about the dim sum there, but of course, dinner is an entirely different matter. I’ve been to restaurants where the dim sum has been amazing, but dinner horrendous. As my family are harsh critics of Chinese restaurant food, having owned restaurants in Germany for the last 30 odd years, I thought they would be able to help me judge the food.

I’ve been eating dim sum regularly ever since I was a child. Cantonese families love to get together for dim sum, particularly at the weekends. I’m quite particular about what I eat, and therefore where I eat, so being a creature of habit, I tend to go to the same dim sum restaurants in London. Although there’s nothing wrong with the places that I eat at, I couldn’t help wondering if there weren’t perhaps other great restaurants just waiting to be discovered. So I set myself the challenge of broadening my gastronomic horizons and eating outside my comfort zone…
