Sample various traditional Chinese appetizers

[ From: Maggie Cheung | Published: 2007-11-19 Views: 1544 | Booked times: 54 ]

Dao Xiang Cun is a Beijing-based shop with over a hundred years of history since opening in 1895. They offer various traditional cooked appetizer dishes you can take home to eat. With 35 outlets all over Greater Beijing, Dao Xiang Cun is an important part of many Beijingers daily life.

 

When I arrived at its branch near the middle North 3rd Ring, I saw a long line even though only a few products remain. Since they make everything fresh on the same day, its possible to see them run out of your favorite food sometimes.

 

The left shelves display cold appetizers, cooked chicken, pork, beef, sausage, and meatballs. Prices range from RMB 15 / 500g to RMB 30 / 500g. The right shelves have various food to snack on. Prices range from RMB 10 / 500g to RMB 20 / 500g.

 

I personally loved the Ox-tongue Cake(ţ), a salty spicy cake shaped like an ox-tongue,   as well as the Napoleon (), a sweet creamy cake. Other popular snacks include the banana pudding (㽶) and Wutangdangao (ǵ), a light-taste sugarless cake.

 

If you want just a light meal, try the fast food items like Chinese tortillas (RMB 2.5) made with eggs, special sauce, and onions. Or perhaps try a bowl of pork wontons (RMB 2). During winter time, Beijingers also enjoy a nice bowl of hot & sour rice noodles (RMB 3).

 

What I appreciated:

Chinese traditional snacks like Niushebing

 

What customers appreciate:

Chinese traditional honored brand, good taste; good quality
