Suzuki Kitchen 铃木食堂

Oh, the elusive Suzuki Kitchen. I walked by this small Japanese restaurant many times but there was always long wait for the table. Today I made a point of being there before they open for dinner at 5:30.

Dali Courtyard 大里院子

This Yunnan restaurant is set nicely in an old Hutong courtyard. There is no traditional menu, only a fixed set of dishes that changes daily. The food is somewhat westernized and most of the guests were foreigners.
