Pak Pak Takes Over Jing-A’s Kitchen
Home of my choice Thai in Beijing, Pak Pak is branching out from its venue in the CBD (just across from the back entrance of The Place Shopping Mall) to take over Jing-A‘s kitchen for one night only this coming Thursday, August 20th from 7PM onwards.
Part of an ongoing series of “Kichen Takeovers”, 京A previously hosted some of Beijing’s most beloved restaurants to mix things up in their kitchen. From Moka Bros Arepera night complete with a beauty pageant to Hagaki (East Hotel)‘s Japanese night with sumo wrestling blow-up suits, I’ll be looking forward to see what Pak Pak has in store for their kitchen takeover. Though I’m sure they’ve got some good surprises up their sleeves, you can count on Pak Pak to start things off right by heating up 京A’s Kitchen with some bold and vibrant Thai flavors.
A set dinner menu inclusive of various Thai curries to choose from, two veggie sides and a dessert, this menu was designed to match 京A’s hoppier beers like the Flying Fist IPA, but according to my inside sources at 京A Taproom, they’re already working on an infusion beer specially for this event.

Look Out for Paleo Set Menus Available Around Town!
An initiative organized by the Middle Kingdom Fitness (MKF) team, The Caveman Challenge encourages their Crossfit goers to eat Paleo for an entire month that runs now until the Chinese New Year holiday in mid-February.
‘Eating Paleo’ is based on the notion that for optimal health, modern humans should go back to eating real, whole unprocessed foods that are more healthful than harmful to our bodies. Prioritizing grass-fed and pastured meats and eggs, wild-caught seafood, and vegetables along with a moderation of fruit, nuts, and seeds, Paleo avoids any pro-inflammatory foods like gluten-containing grains, dairy products, legumes, processed oils, and refined sugar.
In an effort to replace your system of all those holiday sweets with real foods, this is a chance for everyone to start 2015 off to a healthy start!

BJ FOoDiES Take On Guinea Pig Role for FEAST’s Carnivore Club
Their first charity dinner of 2014 and the Year of the Horse, BJ FOoDiEs is back with a bang as they’ve managed to lock in a pretty sweet deal with the innovative culinary team at FEAST by EAST Hotel in Lido.
Headed by Executive Chef Rob Cunningham (former chef of Capital M), the restaurant’s motto is “Simple things, done well” and with a new menu concept in the works, Rob has generously offered to test his new Carnivore Club Menu out on a group of foodies gone guinea pigs.
