At the Fairy Su Restaurant, we met Bing Bing (also known by her American name as “Claire”). She and her staff were the friendliest people we met while in Beijing. She spoke fluent English and she invited John to cook a traditional Eggplant dish in the kitchen with her cooks. In exchange, John taught her and her staff how to cook potato soup.
The Fairy Su Restaurant is located within walking distance of the famous Yonghe Temple.
