Taste Migas’ Culinary Highlights Over the Past 6 Years
It’s hard to believe that Migas has been around for 6 years in Beijing given what a great job they do continually reinvigorating and refreshing the food, bar and rooftop. It’s true what they say – time really does fly when you’re having this much fun (at Migas!). That being said, never look a gift horse in the mouth, it’s party time!
In line with the “Migas style” of doing things, they are throwing a weekend long celebration for their 6th anniversary and are offering up 2 big parties on their rooftop, 2 food events including a Pintxo-Pote deal and a special 6-course menu for the 6 year birthday starting this Thursday, August 25 through Saturday, August 27th.
“One more anniversary! Being in the Beijing scene for six years is a big milestone, and we could not be more grateful. To every single person who has had a fun night on the rooftop with a drink in hand, or a memorable meal in the restaurant with tasty bites… Thank you! You keep us inspired and motivated. It’s been six wonderful years and we have no intention of slowing down! See you at the anniversary celebrations!” – Team Migas

Now that the temperature has hit 30 degrees, Beijing’s 2 week long Spring is over and we are into Summer!
To celebrate the warmth, Migas have updated their already stellar “El Asador” meat-fueled brunch with a new Pintxos & Tapas Weekend Brunch. Widely regarded as having one of the best terraces in the city, now there is no reason to ever leave! Arrive for a late brunch on Saturday afternoon, enjoy a bit of day drinking and then just continue straight on into the evening! Migas, we know your dastardly plan!
We All Can’t Seem to Get Enough of Migas

Particles Kitchen Falls Short on Big Promises
Always on the look out for new restaurants to try, we heard from a fellow foodie birdie that Particles Kitchen (PK) was a fresh new spot in Sanlitun’s Nali Patio with a very reasonable lunch set and soft-opening discount specials. She went for lunch and had the Smoked Salmon Salad. Reported back that it was a bit too sweet for her taste with mango dressing in addition to fruit in the salad, but she thought the portion was a decent size for a light lunch. For those who like a more substantial lunch, she said they also offer a combo lunch deal – where you can have your protein of choice along with your choice of sides (which are displayed for viewing pleasure).
With a bright and airy space and industrial feel, we were excited about the discovery of a hip new spot and keen to get the full dinner experience.
Coming during their soft opening period, note that our dining experience at PK may not be representative of the finished product. On our visit, we noticed that they have quite different menus for lunch and dinner – lunch is “casual” and dinner is “fine dining” so our dinner experience may also not be representative of a lunch at PK either.
