The best way to describe the fare at Hani Gejiu is ethnic Yunnan minority. Run by culinary expert, Sue Zhou, who also caters and teaches at The Hutong, Hani Gejiu is not your typical Chinese restaurant. Expect fresh, high-quality ingredients and dishes that are light and refreshing (without the usual heaviness and over-seasoning found in many Chinese-run restaurants).
We've taken different groups of friends to Hani Gejiu, all of whom rave over the food and vow to come back. Star highlights include the beancurd skin with mint, fried Yunnan cheese, spicy chicken wings, chickpea jelly and the zhajiangmian (Yunnan, not Beijing style). But honestly, we haven't had a bad dish at Hani Gejiu. The staff here will also tailor the dishes to suit any dietary restrictions you have.
Service is great here, a far cry from what you normally find in Beijing. If this is your first time heading to Hani Gejiu, call for directions. The staff will stand outside the hutong street to wait for you.
Tip: Call ahead and reserve the hotpot (serves 4-6), a steaming pot of delicious broth with a heap of ingredients.
