​南锣鼓巷 South Luogu Alley @Dongcheng District, Beijing

2016-10-24-18-25-19Constructed in Year 1267 in the Yuan Dynasty, 南锣鼓巷 South Luogu Alley is located in one of the most popular preserved hutong areas, with locals living in the surrounding. There were officers and signboards at the little alleys when we walked along the stretch of 南锣鼓巷 South Luogu Alley, to remind visitors not to disturb the residents.

There were quite a few souvenir shops and cafes, but we were looking for this very popular 文宇奶酪店 Wenyu Cheese Shop.

There was quite a queue (though we overheard some locals walking by who mentioned that this place was quite empty in the day time), and we got ourselves a 原味双皮奶 Double-layer Steamed Milk (¥14). Made from fresh milk, the first layer looked rather wrinkly, and the flavour was surprisingly light and refreshing. Not bad at all!

2016-10-25-06-50-27We did not see any other snacks that we wanted to try other than my favourite 奶酪.

Instead, we opted to have a proper dinner at 南锣北口包子铺 Nanluo Beikou Baozi Pu (which must have been a first for us on a visit to a night market 🙂 ).

We were enticed by the lively vibe of this place with the menu hang up high on the walls and ordered 花生仁菠菜 Spinach with Peanuts (¥10), 炸酱面 Zhajiang Noodles (¥12), and 凉面 Cold Noodles (¥10).

The cold noodles were quite nice, but the other 2 items were rather salty.

After dinner, we continued to stroll a bit more before returning to our hotel.
