Najia Xiaoguan (那家小馆), Beijing

Najia Xiaoguang is a popular haunt for Beijing foodies for years. It came highly recommended by my friends in the Chinese capital, and as a testament to its own standard – the perpetual queue outside the restaurant.

This place offers some atypical Chinese dishes, many of them Manchurian-styled. The owner of this restaurant was said to be the descendant of one of the “eight banners” in the Manchu families, which were known for their connection to the imperial kitchen back then.

If you’re looking for something different for a change and wallet-safe, Najia Xiaoguang is a good place to go. Even as it seats over a hundred, it’s often fully packed with foreigners and locals alike.

Not the place that serves top quality food, but interesting enough to pay a visit.
