Good Restaurants Near Badaling Great Wall?
Headed over to HK-Beijing-Shanghai in a few days. Last post I found on this subject was in 2004 and basically the answer was no.
8 years later, has anyone found any decent food worthy restaurants near the Badaling portion of The Great Wall? Around or on the way to the Summer Palace maybe? Otherwise, we're stuck with the tour company's lunch which I'm dreading already.
All types of regional cuisine welcome as long as it's good.
I couldn't find a link on the hotel website (odd) -- but it gets reviewed in the various local magazines, here's link to one such of the cantonese restaurant onsite.
They also have a 'fusion' and western restaurant.
A little further from the summer palace, but near Beida (peking university) is a restaurant I ate at recently: no link, but it's called 'zhili native association restaurant' and the style is of imperial-era governor's menu: not quite imperial banquet. Food was great, and not too expensive, but my colleague's ordered, so that made things easier, since there was absolutely no english (but the menu did have english i think -- I didn't get a chance to see it). Rather fun place.
