Feel like Nixon
That title is an inside joke between my sister and me but I'll explain later. :P
Since my uncle is a high class manager for 5-star Beijing hotels, he has friends who also own their own hotels or restaurants. (I bet they just casually dine at each other's restaurants whenever they feel like it)
So a couple days ago we were extremely lucky to eat at a Panorama Carousel Restaurant and it was AMAZING. I felt like I was on cloud 9 and enjoyed every minute of it. It was located on the very top of a hotel and the room has 360 degree glass walls where you could you see the entire city view. And the best part: the tables itself is slowly spinning so as you eat, you are slowly moving and the scenery is slowly shifting. Wait, I lied, the best part was that it was a buffet. :P
Because the restaurant is fancy, it serviced many government leaders such as President Nixon and Kim Il Sung. Stacey and I would joke that whenever we experience something extra luxurious or special, we would say "Feel like Nixon".
The greatest part of the food was the soup they served. Its called Fuo Tiao Qiang (Budda jumps over the wall) and is considered one of the most delicious soups ever made; even the Budda would jump over the wall to eat it. The soup contains all sorts of ingredients such as pork, eggs, seafood,and tofu. I'm going to sound like a food critic here: it was probably the best soup I have ever had. The texture of the soup is so creamy but its also very light and the flavor had a taste of sweet potato yet its also savory.
I'm currently in Guangzhou right now but I'll be posting another Beijing article soon. Its getting more humid and hot here so I'll probably be staying inside a lot (thank the gods for AC).
