Beijing Xiao Wang’s Home Restaurant (北京小王府) serves Beijing style home cooked food. There are a number of Beijing Xiao Wang’s Home Restaurant in Beijing and I went to the one in the Ritan Park (日坛公园). It was located in a lovely park. Lots of residents in the area were enjoying the greens in the evening.
The restaurants has three levels, two indoors and on the roof was outdoor. If the weather is good, the roof top would be the best spot to enjoy both the food the scenery of the park. I chose to sit indoor.
I ordered the dumpling and my favourite Chinese Cabbage as mains. Both the dishes were extra delicious, very flavourful. The dumpling has a rich pork taste and the spring onions added increased and enhanced the flavours, while the Chinese Cabbage, the stock was well absorbed into the vegetable. The Chinese Cabbage was soft and very flavourful. I think the stock tasted like chicken and some preserved Chinese ham was added as well. It was extremely good.
I like BaSi very much and I rarely get this in Singapore. So I won’t missed the chance of having BaSi. I ordered the Banana BaSi. It was great. Not too sweet. The caramelised sugar and sesame together with the banana paired off so well. Yummy.
I have a great dinner at Xiao Wang’s Home Restaurant. I will surely return for more when in Beijing.
