There are two places you should go in Beijing for the best Korean food: one is Chaoyang’s Wangjing; the other is Haidian’s Wudaokou. While Wangjing has Beijing’s biggest concentration of Korean residents, Wudaokou is known for the large group of Korean overseas students in the nearby universities. Ming Dong Bang is the most popular Korean restaurant in Wudaokou. Its Korean noodles with black bean sauce and bibimbap are must-tries.

Breath Yard

The restaurant is hidden in a village in the northeastern outskirts of Beijing. It’s so low-key that you can’t even find the sign for it if not looking carefully, but once you sit down in its greenhouse-like dining room and have a bite of its Italian food made from fresh ingredients, you’ll know why the restaurant is worth the trip. Besides, it is said that the restaurant doesn’t have a menu, and the dishes are all decided by the chef according to the ingredients available on the day – delightful for those who love surprises.
