China trip recs

Chris Rising | May 20, 2006 03:10 PM

I'm leaving next week for a two week trip and I am already dreaming about the chow possibilities. Here's the itinerary: Shanghai, Xian and Beijing. Any specific restaurants for any meal would be appreciated, but more so what foods are not to be missed. Are there specific cuisines to seek out? I know there has to be more than hunan, cantonese, and szechuan.

What can I eat on the street? Are vendors to be avoided, or are there some really tasty bites I can find?

Any ordering hints for restaurants? Is there anyway not to get the total tourist experience?

Here are some restaurants that we have heard of elsewhere. Any complete mistakes? Shanghai: Whampoa Club, Nanxiang Steamed Buns. Beijing: Red Capital Club, China Club, and Quan Ju De Duck.

Thanks for any help and pointers.
