Shandong Restaurants in Beijing

The majority of Chinese restaurants in Beijing feature what is known as 'family style dishes' (jia chang cai), which are basically the most common types of food that any self-respecting Chinese makes at home. Shandong style (lu cai) stems from that. Shandong Cuisine, also known as Lu cai, is made up of Jiaozhou Cuisine (mainly the seafood) from the coast, Jinan Cuisine from inland, and Kongfu Cuisine. Lu cai tastes somewhat salty and is the most widespread cuisine in the country. Shandong Cuisine can now be found in nearly every corner of China and is well liked by gourmets.
