On my recent trip to Beijing I stayed at the Ritz Carlton hotel which you’ll have to read about in a separate article. While at the hotel, I was able to try their authentic Cantonese food at their Yu restaurant. I witnessed a very full dining room when I entered which is always a good sign.
Of course, I had to order the Beijing duck in Beijing. Some other dishes I thoroughly enjoyed were the mixed barbecue plate, the Szechuan beef and the fried mushrooms.
The mushrooms were a type that I’ve never had before, and they were fried to perfection. The picture does not do them justice but they were simply fantastic. It doesn’t look like we ate that much food but in reality, we were super stuffed at the finish. Not only did the food look absolutely fantastic it tasted great as well. The service was also great the entirety of the meal.
I really can’t say enough good things about the Yu restaurant! Practically every bite of food was glorious. If you’re looking for a fantastic Cantonese meal while in Beijing, I would highly recommend you to try the Yu restaurant inside of the Ritz Carlton Beijing hotel!
