I know I’ve been slacking on my food porn from China, but as soon as I’m done settling in to #newyork and #nymc, they’ll be updated! But for now, I’m learning to be a #newyorker and who wouldn’t be awed by this great #skyline?

Hope you like #lamb because this time we visited the city of #Urumqi’s offices in #Beijing for some delicious #Uigher cuisine. Here we have lamb with copious amounts of #scallions, served with convenient little #flatbreads.

The finale of our time at #brickandwood #beijing: #homemade mint and citrus (#yuzu?) ice cream. A bite including the mint leaves was just heavenly.

Part 7 from #brickandwood #beijing: this dish was a bit more delicate with a creamy slice of #tofu and some sort of white fish (I was not able to figure out the Chinese-English translation) accompanied by a cucumber reservoir of soy sauce.

Part 5 of the meal extravaganza at #beijing #brickandwood: sweet and tender slices of eel laid over a small pillow of rice. Usually I find eel too sweet and one-dimensional, but this was warm, sweet, just the right tang of savory, and actually tasted like seafood.
