​沙县小吃 Shaxian Delicacies @Dongcheng District, Beijing

2016-10-26-22-57-55We were still feeling full from our super late and filling lunch, but we wanted to have a little supper before returning to the hotel.

We checked out the eateries near the hotel, and 沙县小吃 Shaxian Delicacies looked rather popular despite being almost 10pm (沙县 Shaxian is a province in 福建 Fujian, though we were not sure if everything served here was of 福建 Fujian origin).

We shared the following:

  • 猪肚汤馄饨 Wonton Soup with Pig’s Stomach (¥16):  This was actually a rather yummy herbal soup! The wonton skin was very thin, and the fillings quite flavorful. The pig’s stomach was very tender and clean, without any odour. If you do not like pig’s stomach, there are a variety of other soups available, but we suspect the base is the same herbal soup.
  • 飘香拌面 Piaoxiang Ban Mian (¥7): Initially hubby ordered 葱油拌面, which is dry noodles tossed with a fragrant oil mixture. The friendly shop owner asked if hubby wanted sesame sauce because that is known as 飘香 (loosely translated to fragrance). I think somehow the owner knew hubby very well, haha. We immediately changed our order and we had a very happy hubby. The sesame sauce was indeed very fragrant, and the noodle was of the right firmness.

What a surprise find! Tummies happy and warmed, we made our way back to the hotel.
