    Going home to Beijing this May, will eat at every single one of them, and then some! Well actually I’ve already been to many of the listed (especially to have the DUCK!!!!) during my 19 odd years at home and the recent trips I made back home since, but oh I’m drooling all over my keyboard again just thinking about the gourmet heaven (or dieter’s hell, whatever your view on it) I’ll be in soon~~

    Good, I mean great, food here I come!
