For some quality Beijing and Northern Chinese food, try Ji Rong Restaurant. The cold appetizers are a notch above standard, says Ciao Bob, especially the very moist, flavorful chicken.

The winner: a truly outstanding pork meat pie. “It would give the far better known ‘Shandong Beef Roll’ a serious run for its money,” says Ciao Bob.

Hot pots are excellent, especially lamb hot pot, says ipsedixit. Ciao Bob also likes their shredded pork with cabbage and water-boiled fish. But all agree: The Peking duck is a waste of time.
