Méizhōu Dōngpō Jiǔlóu

Sichuan in Sanlitun & Chaoyang

Recongisable by its traditional Chinese-style frontage, this branch of the popular Sìchuán chain opens up to a modern interior that does good-quality, typically mouth-numbing dishes. The menu is in English and has photos as well as very handy chilli-logo spice indicators. Beer is ¥8 a bottle.
