Recommended Snacks
Fermented Mung Bean Juice
It is actually the fermented leftover for making green bean starch. Although looking very ordinary, it could nourish the stomach, clear heat and detoxify, thus playing an important role in Beijingers' daily life. They usually have it with another crispy snack called Fried Ring. The juice is in light celadon color and tastes a little bit sour, which is not very friendly to those first-time diners, but you will get addicted to it after getting used to the taste. Fermented Mung Bean Juice so far has more than 300 years of history. In Qing Dynasty (1636 - 1912), it even became a popular drink for imperial court. Therefore it is truly worth trying.
