I will be headed for China atthe end of September and will have a week in Beijing before the Elderhostel trip begins. My godson is studying at Tsinghua University [grad work] and is fluent in Mandarin. Fortunately he is fond of his godmother. Anyhow, I will be helping feed at least one impoverished grad student. Do any Roadfood members have some familiarity with Beijing, enough to recommend some good, relatively inexpensive places to dine? Language obviously is not a problem. thanks.
