Xiǎo Féiyáng information
Right across the way from Lìzhèng Gate, this hotpot restaurant is excellent for post–Imperial Summer Resort ramblings. The two-flavour, spicy and mild yuānyāng (鸳鸯锅; ¥20) base is best, into which you fling plate loads of lamb (羊肉; yángróu ; ¥18), cabbage (白菜; báicài ; ¥4), potatoes (土豆片; tǔdòupiàn ; ¥4), eggs (鸡蛋; jīdàn ; ¥1) and more. No English menu but the waitresses will help you tick the form. It’s on the ground floor of the Xīnyìfùlái Hotel (新意富来酒店).
