I had fun getting lost around Houhai area. Alleys all very atmospheric. I had seen this restaurant a Beijing traveller website along with a bar called the no name. I never found the bar but did find this resatuarant - happy I did.
Houhai is a bit too touristy for me, and the bars are for people a good 40 years younger than I am and who like really loud, bad, live music.
But Nuage was a grown up dining experience. I opted for the Chinese menu - cause I was in China after all.
Pig Kidneys, fish flavoured crispy duck and a mushroom and baby pakchoi vegetable dish. flavours were good, more on the warm side than spicy side - kind of like Vietnamese cuisine.
I was on my own - a rare sight in Chinese restaurants - and was given a good table looking out over the lights from the bars reflected in the water of lake Houhai.
three dishes and two beers cost around 25 quid. Beijing restaurants are not cheap - and not always worth it. This, however, was and is well worth getting lost to find. An altogether pleasant experience for a business traveler on his own - although atmospheric enough for couples on holiday to enjoy as well.
