Beijing for Two Checklist

applecore | Feb 23, 2011 04:09 AM

My boyfriend (from LA) is visiting me here in Beijing and I've been trying to figure out where to go, especially since many Chinese meals are built for more than 2 people (ie, order a ridiculous amount of dishes and share at a huge table).

I want to take him to eat Peking Duck - is Da Dong ok for two people? I have not been to Da Dong - only LiQun, which seemed like a group dining kind of place. Which is a more authentic experience -Da Dong or Made in China? I've been to LiQun, which probably is the most "authentic" downhome type place, but I'm not necessarily looking for an old-Beijing hutong type place.

I really enjoy Dali Courtyard, even though people say the flavors are geared toward westerners. Dining for two seems to work fine at Dali.

I really enjoy this place for their ribs and other delicious dishes on their menu.

other than those listed above, I really have no clue where to go - I moved here 6 months ago so I'm still a bit clueless. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
