Obentos: New Liangmaqiao Branch + New Dining Concept
Since the opening of their second branch in Liangmaqiao’s Grand Summit shopping center, healthy Japanese restaurant Obentos is upping their game with “healthy” dishes never looking or tasting this damn good.
For all my fellow bento-pushers out there, fear not. Obentos’ signature bento lunch boxes, gorgeous salads and healthy smoothies are still there, but there’s now a whole new menu of delightful dish creations ranging in size and categorized into: 6 small plates, 6 main plates, 6 sides plus 2 desserts.

Obentos Releases New Summer Menu Specials!
Obentos has done its Spring cleaning. After updating their smoothie menu, they’ve also completely given their food menu a facelift with both brand-new and revised signature salads, bento boxes and an awesome grain bowl addition (pictured above)!
In anticipation for summer months, they’ve incorporated a lot of seasonal ingredients into their menu choices, which has re-vamped their menu almost entirely. But even though they’ve shrunk their menu options, Obentos regulars can rest assured that they’ve maintained their principles and dedication to healthy meals by narrowing their focus and really boosting each dish with greater taste and nutrition.
“For this summer we have created a bunch of new dishes with our typical signature Obentos health twist. Expect fresh whole foods packed with flavour that will help you tackle the summer heat and make you feel good from the inside out.” - Obentos

I’ve Never Seen a Restaurant Filled with So Many Flowers
Known to serve healthy, well-prepared Cantonese cuisine, MySoup 卖汤 restaurant in Central Park (just next to Jamaica Blue and Lime Cafe Thai restaurant) is much more than its name implies. Their menu covers seafood dishes, claypot rice dishes and both soup noodles and boiled dumplings. Their featured soup of the day (RMB 68) changes regularly, but you can always order their Fish Maw Chicken Bouillon Soup (RMB 88).
Ok, but enough about the food because what struck me most about MySoup was not what’s on the menu, but what you see once you step inside.
Walk through the tall glass doors of MySoup is an unbelievable amount of plants, trees, bushes and flowers hanging from the ceiling, from the walls, on the tables, beside your seat, everywhere. It’s an incredible sight and to dine surrounded by so much floral foliage is a luxury that we Beijingers are very much deprived of.
