There's more to Beijing's culinary tradition than just the infamous duck, but Beijing Home has a good one. The more humbling offerings, for some reason though, seem to stand out more. We recommend the snacks, like the Beijing-style pig skin (more like a cold jellied terrine), salad with peppers, cucumber and bean curd skin and - best of all - the shredded tripe with mustard (never underestimate the Beijinger's enthusiasm for tripe). Also delicious are the Beijing-style crisp lamb, and excellent dumplings with thick, chewy and handmade wrappers, filled-to-burst with scrambled egg and tomatoes.
Price: About HK$125 (£10) per person
