Alameda's Business Lunch

by Ljgarbanzos June. 07, 2011 2022 views

There's probably good reason why this Beijing restaurant is widely popular in the business community for their lunch set. It was just awarded “Best Business Lunch” in Beijinger's latest 2011 Reader Restaurant Awards. And we fully agree!! Best value for money too as each set is only 68RMB for a two course meal. It's a bit difficult to find as it's tucked away inside an alley in Sanlitun. We walked about 15 mins before we found this place.

Two types of bread with herbed butter is given as part of the meal. We especially loved the dome-shaped cheesy bread. So good! Unfortunately, I was not able to take a picture of that.

Opted for this for my starter course. Baked oysters, pea sprouts drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette dressing, diced mango tomato ensalada. We shared the oysters. =)

Hubby's starter. Smoked duck, pea sprouts salad. I forgot the rest but it was also good!

My main course. Three slices of juicy, succulently soft, Escalope de Mignon cooked to Medium perfection on a bed of baby potatoes. Yum! Too much for me, gave one to slice to hubby.

Hubby's choice. Broiled fish in lemon butter sauce with asparagus and bamboo. Choices are between fish, meat or vegetarian as they offered polenta.
