Latin Grillhouse

There is a lot of "latin-argentine-brazilian" barbecue in town. Many very good in the beginning but after a few times it is all the same and also in many the quality of the food is dropping at the same speed that the food prices are going up.

In the new Solana shopping Center (just south of Lucky street) a new Latin barbecue have opened - Latin Grillhouse.

They have a buffet serving 13 types of barbecued meats sliced off of skewers by waitors dressed in gucho outfits. Also a rich salad buffet and free drinks. RMB 128 during evenings.

The food is good and the service also. Brazilian Live band most evenings. Try this barbecue if you have been tired of the other ones in town.

C1-11, Block 1, Solana 010-5905 6126, 5905 6128


tao in the south end of Lucky street is serving delicious Mediterranean food.
Same type of set-up as Alameda and Salt. Set menues that changes weekly.
One starter and one maincourse RMB 168.
We tried Goose liver salad and Avocado with shrimps as starters and Pork chop and Argentine Beef to follow. Generous portions and very tasteful.
Attentive staff and exellent service. A new favorite!

Teppanyaki Show Bar

One of our new favorites is a japanese teppanyaki restaurant in Lucky Street, a few minutes east of Lufthansa Center.
The food is very fresh and they offer a "buffet" dinner where You choose anything you like from the menue to the price of RMB 158, drinks (wine, beer, softdrinks) included.

There is a lot of different seafood, vegetables and meat to chose from and I can promise you that you will not leave the restarant hungry.

In weekends the restaurant is often crowded so give a call for a table to be sure.
