Ten courses of Beijing home cooking and continual pours of wine and beer at a communal table with new friends from around the world and all for $50. It simply does not get any better. Black Sesame Kitchen offers a nice combination of traditional cooking like your Chinese grandma would make as well as some modern twists. The food was amazing...when I was there we had green beans, mushrooms, beef, chicken, pork belly, broccoli, lotus root, eggplant, pumpkin dumplings, and black sesame ice cream with candied bananas.
At the table were travelers from New Zealand, England, and the United States, which precipitated wide ranging conversation about home, travel, great meals, career, and much more. Black Sesame Kitchen is a truly unique experience. If I am lucky enough to return to Beijing, I will certainly find my way back, maybe even taking one of the cooking classes too.
