BEIJING: Mr Shi's Dumplings / Shichahai Lake

Second last post on Beijing:

We love the lounge, so we would head over at the end of every day for a drink or some small bites.

We also ordered room service, which I didn't really touch because I was stuffed.

The next day we decided to go for some dumplings!

Mr Shi's Dumplings
Definitely catered to foreigners: menus in English, foreign currencies displayed under glass table tops, walls covered with hand drawn international flags and messages left by customers.

They serve a wide variety of dumplings (deep fried, pan fried, boiled) with different stuffings to choose from (beef, mutton, pork, lentils, leek, chives, eggs, shrimps, etc etc etc). Not to mention delicious too! We were totally spoilt for choice. If I had the chance I would definitely return!!!

Ma la chicken! This dish was completely wiped out by me. So so so good, my limited vocab will never ever do it justice hahaha.

Shichahai Lake
We went for a walk after lunch, and found that the lake had frozen! Skating equipment include ice chair, skating shoes, ice bicycle, etc. I have no idea how to skate haha so we went for the ice chair!

Once in a while I would remind myself that we were on a lake and start freaking out a bit, because What if the ice breaks?!

A man d'un certain âge actually swam in the freezing cold water... what?!
