Beijing’s has countless uniquely themed restaurants even to the oldest Beijing residence. Today, the one I am talking about is at east Wuhuan (五环). The name I need not say, the owner very genuine, and has a typical Beijing men’s temperament.
Very hospitable when friends come to visit, he also arranges assistance to take photos. Otherwise, even if you are the reporter from the united nation, taking out your camera is strictly forbidden. The word is many news paper voluntary requests to interview him and the place, whether the presses from the government or local media, most of them were respectfully refused. I was introduced by his friends, even though the owner knows my position, but he still warmly welcomed me as his friend’s friend. I have been to this restaurant 3 times, the first 2 times, I explored the way and took pictures, and last time is for having dinner with my friend. Everyone who has been to here all like this place, joyful, lively, and also have those theatrical performance from the past generation. Young people come here for the novel experience. Older folks come here to find their shadow of youth. Impressed by reputation, foreigners especially like this place. This is their best gate way to learn about Chinese present history.
