榆乐轩餐厅 Yuyuexuan Restaurant

One weekend, I decided to check out the East Orthodox Church inside the Russian Embassy in Dongzhimen. After an hour of walking and explaining myself in Mandarin, I faced a Russian security guard who could not speak Mandarin or English so it was the end of the line for me.

I rewarded myself with a meal in some random 胡同 hutong, revisiting some of my recent discoveries.

酸辣蕨棍粉 Spicy sour fern noodles for RMB 12. I remember trying this out in another restaurant so when I saw this again I knew I was in for a treat.

京酱肉丝 Capital sauce meat silk (direct translation - sorry!) for RMB 24. I first tasted this in one of the restaurants near the Badaling section of the Great Wall, and I've loved it ever since. Basically you envelop the chicken on the pasta-like wrapper.
