Argo in Wudaoying

After our visit to the Lama Temple (where I learned a fair bit about the Buddist faith and observed how to pray in a temple), my friend and I chanced upon Argo as we were strolling along Wudaoying, the hutong pegged to be the next Nanluguoxiang 南路过巷. 

Wudaoying looks darling in the evenings, with yellow lights gushing out from the small restaurants and shops and into the dark grey concrete, with sellers of random trinkets laid out in velvet cloth gently inviting us to look at their wares.

We chose to enter Argo because it was Greek, and I haven't been in a Greek restaurant ever since my stay in Beijing.
