Lao Beijing

Lao Beijing, in Plaza Singapura (#03-01) is a great place for a night out. The menu features a wide array of China specialties (not just dishes from Beijing), the atmosphere has captured the feeling of China well, and the staff is efficient and friendly. We started off with the Peking duck, and it was done just right. The skin was crispy, just like it is supposed to be, even though the meat was cut a little thicker than you normally see for Peking Duck.

With all of the dishes we had — including Hunan prawns, popiah, shark's fin soup, shredded pork rolls, guo tie (fried dumplings), and a mango dessert — there was not a single one that missed with our group. Lao Beijing is a perfect spot for a family outing or a dinner with friends. There are also branches at Novena Square and Tiong Bahru Plaza, but I have heard that neither is as nicely decorated as the Plaza Singapura location.

Hmm, next time, send me a sample of everything by courier. Sounds good.

It really is good. The atmosphere at this branch makes it especially perfect.

I was there last night after just coming home from China. Normally I wouldn't eat China-style food just after returning from a trip there, because you know the local variations will pale in comparison to the "real thing." But that wasn't true this time. Lao Beijing does it just right, for the most part.
