Where: Plaza Singapura #03-01
Nestled in modernity of Plaza Singapura, stepping into Lao Beijing would seem like a journey into the past. Modelled after an ancient inn, the ambience is cozy and makes one feel right at home. The service was also easy going and readied us for a good meal.
Although hardly considered a North Chinese delicacy that the restaurant is famous for, we ordered “popiah” (vegetable and turnip roll in chinese crepe) which stands out as a healthy alternative and were pleasantly surprised. The key ingredients were made to perfection! The turnips were tender and cooked to the right moisture. Also, the chilli served cut right through the mix but was not overwhelming.
Ordering some of their house specials, we were also impressed by the Beijing-style fried shredded pork and leek with the Chef’s special sauce and Fried french beans with ground pork and minced fried shrimp. These dishes were unique and well-done, passing the taste-buds test with flying colors!
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Lao Beijing. However, we do note that the meals were slightly pricey at about S$20 to S$25 per person. Yet, we believe you will nonetheless enjoy this culinary delight.
