Cantonese Restaurants in Beijing

A huge chunk of Chinese culture is devoted to food and drink. There are hundreds of different dishes, and each region has its own distinctive flavor.

All of the really funky dishes you hear about like live monkey brains and raw rat babies are Guangdong (Cantonese) style dishes (yue cai). However, there are lots of excellent, non-scary Guangdong dishes - the seafood being especially tasty. The cost of tasting Cantonese Cuisine is a little high.
