Lonely Planet review
Next to the more expensive Yonghe Chinese Food Hall just north of the city wall, this is a handy place for a quick meal. Tick off a form and hand it to the waitress. Try the málà niúròu miàn (麻辣牛肉面; Y12), a spicy steaming bowl of beef noodles and a fried egg (煎蛋; jiāndàn; Y1), or a xiāngjiān cōngyóu bǐng (香煎葱油饼; deep-fried pancake; Y3). Yanjing beer comes by the pint (Y7). Photo menu at the service desk.
