Homegrown food offers the best value for money

One of my most interesting foreign friends in Beijing is a German woman named Marianne. Despite being quite well-off, she lives among ordinary Chinese folks, renting a flat in a plain, 1980s-vintage six-story complex, that has been completely remodeled into a tasteful blend of East and West.

This space provides her with a comfortable environment for one of her passions: designing furniture. And when she's not doing that in her spare time, Marianne is out and about searching for new and unique Chinese culinary adventures in Beijing.

On a recent evening, she took me to one of her favorite finds: a unique hotpot restaurant specializing in fish. Although I had never seen this place reviewed in the new restaurant listings in expat magazines, they served the best hotpot I have ever eaten in China.
