Now this is a special blog entry. I am not here to tell you how great the food is (it was great), but its menu has the most amazing variety of dishes i have ever seen in my entire life. And i really wanna show you what they serve in this restaurant.

Let’s get started shall we.

First of all, this restaurant is called Lao Beijing, literally means Old Beijing.

funnyrestaurant7 by you.

I would say that this is their signature dish. Since they insist the city is really big and old la. 

And then we have some really exotic food.

Acrotic Shellfish Sashimi. I hope they didn’t mistype Erotic.

And some really ordinary food like assorted cucanber and carrot and etc.

Are they saying Australians all have an alcohol problem?

Do you see the sign of a beautiful aroma from this dish?

funnyrestaurant31 by you.

I do.



This restaurant is also famous for duck. I mean dook.

funnyrestaurant54 by you.

Roast dook.

funnyrestaurant12 by you.

Yea they made it very clear that the duck was not erm… pure bred. It is perhaps a hybrid of duck and goose. That’s why it is called dook.

funny23 by you.

Another dook dish.

funnyrestaurant18 by you.

Yea! Mixed Blood! YAY!

funnyrestaurant21 by you.

For people who are full of themselves.

Wipe dry, baby, wipe dry.

funnyrestaurant41 by you.

The restaurant is also infant-friendly.

funnyrestaurant52 by you.

And serve food that is packed with nutrients.


funnyrestaurant43 by you.

While serving an array of world delicacies, the restaurant is also very down to earth and humble. They remember some people in China are very poor.

funnyrestaurant50 by you.

The seniors work really hard.

Sometimes, the weather is less than perfect.

funnyrestaurant51 by you.

During winter, they just have to make do lo.


funnyrestaurant17 by you.

During drought they only have dried food to eat. But it is fresh nontheless.


funny24 by you.

After the dry food you might want something erm… moisturizing (Ok la i checked Hydrangea is a kind of flower.)


funnyrestaurant44 by you.

They live a hard life and it was reflected on their crops.

funnyrestaurant45 by you.

In order to protect their poultry, sometimes they even had to eat fowl food (pun optional). Like corn and… chicken feathers.


And when they really really run out of food and is starving to the brink of death….

There’s a part two, where it’s an Award entry. I found the dishes so brilliant i have decided to give out awards.
