北京之旅

200808 Beijing Olypics- Public


day one


lunch@Lan Club in 朝陽區,環境一流,食物偏貴,水準一般,最好的是它那壺鐵觀音。

推介:去飲野,不要去吃飯

afternoon activity@王府井大街,王府井書店。
說不買不買還是買了很多書,主要是中醫養生和幾本世界史、社會學和哲學書籍。

dinner@全聚德(王府井店)
因為book不到grand hyatt 的made in china,加上很多人跟我說全聚德的烤鴨是北京最好的(我一直認為最好的只有大董,也試過難吃得很的香港和上海全聚德),不如親自認證。
全聚德環境差已不在話下,估不到食物更是差的驚人。
烤鴨---難吃。皮不夠脆,脂肪太多。全都是皮連肉切法,沒有留幾塊凈皮。
叫了一碗魚翅:忘了菜名。總之實際是老抽生粉羹魚翅。翅是九流翅,盛惠¥385
還叫了一盤甜酸蝦頂肚,同樣難吃的想死。
發誓一生不會再去全聚德。

繼續覓食
發現有一家pudding muffin 店。我愛所有(蛋+糖+麵粉)的食物,e.g. pancakes, waffles, 雞蛋仔,但從不愛muffin,因為它太乾。這點把pudding放在muffin中心,解決了干的問題,聰明。好吃!!

回酒店看奧運。看完才游泳。酒店游泳池開到11:00pm, gym更是24小時開放。游泳池兩旁有兩個 jacuzzi,確實可遇不可求。

day two

lunch @ Le Pr Lentre in Sofitel
正常正宗法國菜,沒什麽驚喜。環境一流,價錢公道。

afternoon activities
- 前門大街。于綢緞店買了一塊布做旗袍。

- 798 藝術區,highly recommend!

- 到奧運村的sponsor booths走走,到處走走。麥當勞逼爆,所以到了附近的餐廳隨便醫肚。

Evening
到鳥巢看奧運田徑項目,看相簿就知我坐哪裡。當日客觀性較高的 項目是女子pole vault和障礙賽。中國現場評述員真是”無得彈“。

離開場館是一場災難的誕生。架架往市區的巴士都滿瀉,到場外等出租車成功率等於零。走到多遠都是有人等沒車停。於是上了一架圍繞場館走的巴士,到達某個離所有場館門口比較遠的站下車,在那裡等車,還是要爭的,但至少有車來。

late evening
早知會累死的一天,所以一早book了spa。所謂的club oasis只是高級版按摩,不是spa。不過已經沒必要投訴,因為我都睡著了。

要做真正的spa可以考慮Zen Spa instead。

day Three

lunch:終於到我最愛的大董。新店水準與老店無異。酥而不膩,不是浪得虛榮。還有¥98的山楂鵝肝,又平又好吃,環境也好,服務也好。

彌明:

到王府井大街後,有否嚐過蝎子呢?:)

王府井很多書店,再往前走就是北京商務:)

打的去全聚德時,跟司機說去前門的那一家:)

上次到北京時,沒時間去都一處,真可惜:)

是否去瑞蚨祥做旗袍呢?:)

Sun Bin 說...

glad u enjoyed beijing

---
LAN is a rip-off. Same food at 俏江南 (same owner) at half the proce thrice the portion.

Note the drink area is different fro the dining area. But the point of interest for LAN is actually its toilet.

--

you should have consulted the local or the 'chinese zagat' such as dianping.com. 全聚德 is so 1980s.

the problem of 大董 is the reservation/waiting. 上缘坊 (search dianping for review and address) is a good alternative (almost exactly the same duck as dadong, much lower in price) but location is far away (east of olympic park).


p.s.
1) i never order 鲍参翅 in beijing, not only because they are soso, also these are the Corruptor's menu
2) there is a coordinated tea scam in most restaurants in beijing, where they charge you obscene price for tea.
3) take the subway -- free pass for ticket holder for the olympic line.

Ray 說...

睇左今日am730清姐篇文未? ;)

your ex-colleague 說...

wow~! you look really so slim, congratulations!=D

slimgirl 說...

I went there last year and ate alot too....

You are looking slim now so don't put on weight again haha

andy chan 說...

你係咪串錯左olympic?
haha
好欣賞你既敢言
買左你本新書
咁你會唔會去atv架?

可能去美國讀大學呀我
去邊好? 讀education

篤篤篤撐 說...

很多人跟我說全聚德的烤鴨是北京最好的
>>>
邊個o甘大整古, 同佢絕交la

說不買不買還是買了很多書,主要是中醫養生和幾本世界史、社會學和哲學書籍
>>>
如果是big 6 作品, 應該悭番好過
因為國內既社會學同哲學水平
基本上比唔上hk 既70年代

如果是簡體字版
我覺得犯不著山上水遠搬番hk
買台灣版/香港版好過
至少, 中文字係番中文字
同埋, 會覺得自己係真係閱讀緊一本書

匿名 說...

有機會應該食下利群

Erica 說...

有否嚐過蝎子呢?:)
----你話呢?

Same food at 俏江南 (same owner)
---no wonder

大董reservation/waiting
---make reservation well before your trip!i went to eat at 1100am as brunch, ho hohoooo~~

鲍参翅 in beijing, not only because they are soso, also these are the Corruptor's menu
-----ok... now i know...

there is a coordinated tea scam in most restaurants in beijing
--- right! 50-60RMB each pot!

take the subway
--- didn't think about that at all...


睇左今日am730清姐篇文未? ;)
---- yes... read the east mag editorial, even better!

so don't put on weight again haha
----i think i found a medication for my SAD problem for this winter! =D


你係咪串錯左olympic
--- yes and fixed, thanks~

可能去美國讀大學呀我
去邊好? 讀education
----那裡都好,是體驗。

邊個o甘大整古, 同佢絕交la
----很多人,不止一個。


因為國內既社會學同哲學水平
基本上比唔上hk 既70年代
----只是西方的哲學史和基礎社會學理論(從來沒讀過),應該ok.中醫那本是super。遲些與大家分享。

簡體字版
----對我來說,看簡體和繁體是沒分別。

有機會應該食下利群
---下次一定。好吃嗎?

Leona 說...

剛巧也上了北京一趟,怎麼沒碰著你?
:)
可惜沒機會去798藝術區。

說到吃,推薦全北京最好吃的上海菜(這句話似乎很矛盾,呵呵)「滬江香滿樓」。
光是醺魚和烤麩已令人回味無窮。配上三四十年代的上海老歌,來回六小時,只為吃它一頓也覺得值得。

仲以為彌明咩都唔驚噃~~~~~~:P

P.S.咁有無試酒漾丸子呢?:)

Lawrence 說...

Dear Erica:

For top-notch Peking Duck, next time you should try 'Duck de Chine 1949 全鴨季' at Sanlitun (right behind the PCCW building, Tel: 6501 1949). It's certainly better than 大董.


Best,
Lawrence

Sun Bin 說...

利群 is very Gweilo, and mediocre IMHO. I think it is also overpriced (and the environment is so-so -- a very old 四合院). 香满楼's duck is good (and cheap)
-- for a beautiful 四合院 go to 花家怡园簋街店。


沪江香满楼 is also great -- remember to order the 鳝糊。 But it feels strange to have shanghainese food in beijing (as there are so many choices here -- esp sichuan/chongqing and xinjiang food)

---
yes, early lunch and early dinner can be reserved. (in fact 12pm lunch is the best time to try da dong -- for those who couldn't get up early).

---
my personal recommendation
1) 鼎鼎香 for lamp hotpot (but recently the portions are getting smaller) and they are going for the LAN route
2) 哪家小馆 (on a small street right behind LAN) -- peking cuisine plus a very nice old building.
