Beijing í«Xiao Chií» is a general term that covers a variety of food to eat as a light meal or a snack. You probably ran into some of them before, as they appear all over Beijing. But most stalls are small with few varieties. So where do you go if you want to try all of them? Thatí»s what Jiu Men Xiao Chi is for


Jiu Men Xiao Chi (Nine Gate Fast Food) shelters 11 í░time-honoredí▒ Beijing í«xiao chií» stalls. Most of them first opened before the turn of the century. Over the years, they combined together under one roof to form one large restaurant as business grew.


The variety here is amazing. For sweets, try the Pea Flour Cake (═ŃÂ╣╗Ă), Sesame Balls (┬Úď▓),  or the ancient Rolling Dunkey (┬┐┤˛╣÷) made from glutinous rice and date sauce. Soup lovers may try the Fried Flour Gruel (Ë═▓Ŕ), which is rich in nutrition. The list goes on and on. The foods are made ready for you to choose on the spot. So, doní»t worry about the language barrier. The average cost per dish is RMB 10.


What I appreciate

Savory í«Xiao Chií» and reasonable prices


What customers appreciate

Large selection and tasty taste of Beijing í«Xiao Chií»
