Our Dining Room

This week our restaurant street got even better -- Avocado Tree arrived! This Beijing chain tries to imitate Chipotle with imported beef and organic vegetables. Tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and smoothies!

Magnolia's verdict after our first visit: "Let's eat here lots of times before we leave China!"

We look down on this strip of 15-20 restaurants and it might be the best collection of little restaurants in Beijing.  We've got Home Plate BBQ, which just one 4 major awards in the people's choice awards of one of Beijing's English magazines, a Uighur (Chinese Muslims from Western China) restaurant, with cuisine that ought to be way more popular than it is, a couple Chinese restaurants that are more than decent, an awesome Lebanese place, and now very respectable Mexican.  Oh and Beijing's best pizza is just through the alley.  Between that and our ayi cooking Chinese two nights a week, I haven't really cooked since March!

I sure hope you didn't get food poisoning at your new dining room!
