吕记北京甑糕 Beijing Steam Cake @Shichahai, Beijing

After dinner at 烤肉季 Kaorouji, we strolled around the area, which had plenty of night-life activities! Bright lights everywhere, it was definitely different from what we have seen so far.

20161023_212837We also went to the nearby 烟袋斜街 Yandai Xiejie aka Skewed Tobacco Pouch Street, which is named  after the Chinese pipe, 烟袋 Yandai, that was traditionally sold on this street. Despite being a relatively short street, there were many interesting shops selling a wide variety of stuff.

After we had walked enough to create some space in our stomach, we went back to this 吕记北京甑糕 that we saw when walking from the Subway station earlier.

The word 甑 (zeng in fourth sound) refers to the ancient kitchen utensil made of clay that was used to steam mainly rice.

For ¥20, we got a set of 4 cakes with all 4 flavours and toppings. The texture of the cake reminded us of  Kueh Tutu aka Putu Piring, and the flavours were sweet and tangy, making it a lovely dessert!
