Beijing restaurant opens in SouthEnd tomorrow, May 5. The new restaurant offers dine-in as well as take-out Chinese cuisine, with some Thai influences.
The food isn't your normal greasy Chinese food fare. At Beijing, they steam the dishes and then sautee the ingredients with the sauce (instead of using liberal amounts of oil to cook like most places do).
I stopped by for lunch yesterday and was treated to a feast. I sampled the crab rangoon, house special soup, garlic chicken, seafood hot pot, and cheesecake and fried bananas for dessert. My favorite was the house special soup, which consisted of clear soup broth, fresh veggies, chicken, shrimp, and slices of roasted Chinese bbq pork.
Don't feel like cooking some nights? You can always count on some delicious Chinese food because they are open 7 days a week, from 10:30 am to 10 pm (Sunday through Thursday) and 10:30 pm (Fridays and Saturdays). The restaurant is located on the corner of South Boulevard and E. Park Avenue, next to Sub Station. They currently will not have delivery service, but hope to expand to offer door-to-door service in the future.
Take a look at a few of their dishes:
