The big, bold flavors of Northeast China combined with the historic imperial cuisine and humble fare of the capital’s many migrants are what makes Beijing’s dining scene unique. Steer clear of the crowded tourist markets featuring bugs and mystery meat – it’s best to get off the busy thoroughfares and into the hutong (alleyways) to explore the best food in town.

A stroll through Beijing’s hutongs are recommended to every visitor to the capital, but locals know that “there are as many hutongs as there are hairs on an ox” around the city.
