A vary narrow restaurant in Beijing

During lunch hour, there is a queue to get into this little restaurant. When you do get a seat, there is not much elbow room and the staff shouts your order from your table to the kitchen…. It’s all part of the experience of eating here and I love it.

At the front, there are a two tables for 4 people. If there are just 2 of you, you must share your table with 2 others.

Besides the 2 tables in front, there is a long bench facing a wall. This is where elbow space is limited. If you are right handed, and have to sit next to a person who is left handed, make sure you sit on his/her right.  Otherwise, you might end up with a slight chopstick fight throughout your meal… My husband is left handed while I am right handed.

During our first visit, we had dumplings. They were simple everyday fare…

YUM! In the 80s they sold hot jiaozi on the street and I survived on these, being cash poor!
