I will be staying at the Great Wall Sheraton in Chaoyang District tomorrow (Wednesday) night, and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for what to eat. I'm thinking of going to Baoyuan Dumpling house for lunch on Thursday, and was planning to look for Uighur (Xinjiang) food on Wednesday night, the problem being I'm not sure where to go.
I've been to the Red Rose Restaurant for lunch and wasn't that impressed. The food was pretty bland and service was pretty hostile. I can work around the second, but the first is kind of hard to fix.
I liked the kebab stand in the alley in front of the electronics market (Qi Cai Shi Jie) off NuRen Jie, but it's just kebabs and some baked bread. I'm thinking of maybe eating roast meat, plov (shou zhua fan), da pan ji, etc. The guys at the kebab stand recommended that I go to the Xinjiang rep office in Beijing, which is a pretty long hike from the hotel.
Any thoughts on closer-by options? I'm willing to eat non-Uighur food too.
