Beer: check. Now go to the ‘yum yum’ square and discover the hand-made flavors proposed by the chef Zhang Yi a.k.a Adu (I know the story now but feel free to ask him where he got that nickname !).

A bar food menu, you would say. Oh but wait until you have tried it ! Adu told me he lived in Finland for more than ten years, he loves quality, he loves fresh products and you won’t be able to deny that. Just try and your belly will say thank you. Mine already has while I was listening to his adventures!

Dazhimen Beer Restaurant has 8-10 choices of craft beer, and surprisingly good authentic western food like tacos, fish and chips, and chicken nachos.

 

(FR) La bière, c’est fait. Passez ensuite par la case « Miam Miam » et découvrez les saveurs maison que vous propose le chef  Zhang Yi alias Adu (je connais son histoire mais libre à vous de lui demander d’où vient ce surnom farfelu !). 

Un menu très « bar food » me direz-vous. Oh mais attendez d’être surpris par les saveurs ! Ayant vécu pendant plus de 10 ans en Finlande, Adu aime la qualité et cela se déguste sans modération. Tentez et vos papilles lui diront merci ! Les miennes en redemandent déjà !

The tuna rolls and the brown bread with nuts and raisins will make you melt and ask for more (I did!).

The boss is quite picky about the beers they choose to import and sell, so with the high quality choices you may find that it’s worth it to not have a headache the next day.

 No matter what you choose, trust me, you will win on all fronts!
