A Heartwarming Taste of Hong Kong at Honest Kitchen, Grand Summit | the Beijinger: Whenever the pace of Beijing life gets us down, we always head to Hong Kong-style restaurants. Why?

Hearty Dishes and Lunchtime Crowds Abound at Xinjiang Meatball Soup, Chaowai Soho | the Beijinger: It’s hard to imagine a place that deals in the heavier, meatier elements of Xinjiang dining would be busy during lunchtime, especially one tucked away deep in the labyrinthine Chaowai Soho. Don’t get us wrong, we love to feast on dapanji from time to time with friends and family, but with colleagues at lunchtime near the office? Pushing it. In our minds, it's a wee-hour, beer and baijiu kind of meal.

At meal times, the streets heave with delivery men, bringing cheap, convenient food packaged in plastic. While other countries are banning plastic bags, China is wrapping fruit and vegetables in cling wrap at warp speed.
