EAT: Your little guide to the best food to taste in Beijing this week.
New semi-buffet brunch in Frasca
The Italian restaurant Frasca at the Opposite House presents its very first semi-buffet brunch. Choose from a seafood counter and a wide selection of Italian meats and cheeses to start, then choose a main course from a selection of seven Italian classics such as sausage and creamy polenta, spaghetti carbonara or chicken alla cacciatora. Brunch is priced at RMB 398 per person and is available every Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 3 pm; add two hours of unlimited wine and Italian cocktails like Aperol Spritz for RMB 188.
December specials at Larry the bird
Not content with just producing the tastiest roast chicken in Beijing, the team at Larry the Bird also updates their menu every month with new, limited-edition specials. This month, savor a delicious chicken parmesan sandwich (50 RMB), which revisits the traditional chicken-marinara-mozzarella combo with the addition of spicy pepperoni, or sip a very sophisticated black truffle udon noodle soup (60 RMB) topped with shiitake and hon shimeji mushrooms, crispy fried leeks and a poached egg.
Susu launches party / celebration menu
Not that we really need an excuse to eat, drink and be merry this time of year, but if we did, we might have found the perfect excuse in Susu’s new party menu. . Priced at 228 RMB per person (with the option of adding three hours of unlimited wine for just 188 RMB), the menu is a real treat of Susu’s favorites – think mango beef rolls, shaking beef, lemongrass grilled chicken thigh, and more. The menu is perfect for groups of 10 to 25 people and can be personalized to meet the needs of friends with special dietary needs. The menu is available at OG Susu Courtyard, Susu Longfusi, Susu Phoenix Town and Susu Grand Summit.
