Agua’s Infinity Weekend Brunch Launches Updated Winter Menu
With the sudden drop in temperature, Agua’s taken the initiative to warm up our weekends with their updated Infinity Weekend Brunch menu which now includes a beautiful range of warming dishes including their Beef Bourguignon, Marinated Pork Belly and Icelandic Halibut with pumpkin puree.
A weekend brunch that was first launched back in April (pretty much right after they launched their Spring menu), this updated menu now highlights a lot of their new seasonal fall and winter dishes.

Support Dandelion Migrant School at this month’s BJ FOoDieS Dinner @LMPLUS
An adorable Italian restaurant that started in 2010 and has quickly grown into 3 different Beijing branches, LMPLUS’ owners Lawrence & Massimo Masili are from Sardinia and they they pride their restaurant in using high quality ingredients “with the right amount of extra virgin olive oil and passion in every dish”.
With one of Beijing’s best business lunch deals in town, LMPLUS never fails to impress and deliver consistently incredible Italian creations, which is why I’m pretty stoked to that BJ FOoDiEs will be hosting their next monthly charity dinner at LMPLUS’ Upper East Side location (it’s their biggest one!)

Savor Your Lunch Hour with Niajo’s Business Set Lunch
Lunch is more often than not absolutely manic with either a take-away sandwich or a delivery direct to my office. But if I find myself with an excuse to take someone out to a work-related lunch in the Sanlitun neighborhood, Niajo is at the top of my list for a fantastic business set lunch.
For Niajo’s three-course meal, diners have 3 choices for both starters and main courses which normally includes a soup and salad in the starter choices and a pasta, seafood and meaty dish for mains. Along with a weekly dessert special, guests are also treated to a glass of wine, beer, soft drink, coffee or tea for the all-inclusive price of only RMB 98 per person.
Not only is this a great deal, their lunch menu changes weekly and often features new dishes that aren’t even on their regular menu, which makes these lunches that much more enticing. Check out the menu below for what was on offer a couple weeks back:

Last Minute Chance to Snag a Seat at this October’s Beijing Supper Club Dinner
(Snapshot from the previous Beijing Supper Club Dinner in Houhai)
The Beijing Supper Club is founded by a group of foodies who work hard to find and secure top secret, unique spaces around town to host these one-off pop-up secret dinner and link up with Beijing’s talented chefs to give them a platform to express their creative side at a dinner party for normally up to 20-30 people.
Lucky to have had a seat at their first supper club dinner earlier this year, I’m excited to hear that their next Supper Club dinner is together with one of my favorite chefs in Beijing – Chef Rob Cunningham of FEAST (Food by EAST). Located in the vicinity of the National Art Museum (美术馆), this next pop-up dinner will be taking place this Wednesday, October 22nd.

Join Blue Frog’s Mile High Club by ordering 2 Mile High Burgers for the Price of 1 Every Monday
For most of my foodie friends, Blue Frog‘s 2-for-1 Monday Burger Night is widely known as one of the best value deals in town. Though it was all the rage when the deal first came out, it’s been around for a few years now and after going for monster burgers every Monday for a few weeks in a row, it’s not too long before you get burgered-out.

Mosto is Reborn with a Brighter, More Open Touch
I’ll be honest – when I first heard that Mosto was “shedding its skin” and undergoing renovations over this past October holiday, my first reaction was to throw my head back and scream “NOOOOOOO!!!!” while flailing my arms in disbelief. I didn’t want anything to change about Mosto. I love it dearly as one of my regular, go-to restaurants whenever I’m in the mood for something a little nice and to me, it was just perfect as it was.
But as the saying goes- “The only thing that stays the same is change.” And against my initial response, I’ve held my breath (I have really good lungs despite living here for 8+ years) and I’m delighted to share that upon my return to Mosto this past Friday, October 10th for the relaunch of the “new” Mosto, I gave a big sigh of relief to see that it’s still the same Mosto, but with a new razzle dazzle vibe or as Rani Cunningham so eloquently phrased it – “it’s like Mosto’s got her eyebrows done and everything is just a little more refined.”
The biggest change is the brightening of the whole venue space with lighter walls (see photo above), and they’ve also opened up their open kitchen so that’s it’s not so enclosed behind glass windows. Now Chef Daniel has more room to move around and diners feel a closer connection to their meal as it’s being prepped right beside them!
