Beijing Backpacking, Day 7: The Ultimate Hole In The Wall

image

If the first day of the week was about Chinese cuisine adopting the Western fast food format, today we hit the other extreme. When you’re hungry on your way home, sometimes you just have to point at a random subway station and take a gamble on what’s there.

This joint is in Liuliqiao, the intersection of Line 9 and Line 10. We figured that it has to be quite bustling at an interchange station … Instead, we found the first bare patch of grass in the city.

This quaint joint appeared to serve only the block of apartments of which it is in the ground floor. And you know you’re in a truly local part of town when everyone states at you. But it’s cheap, local, and good … that’s the reward you get for audacity. It does give you quite a creepy sense being amidst the architecture – being so new, the apartment blocks all look the same and give an imposing statement. A bright spark amidst a gargantuan development.
