RMB 188, includes a three course lunch, coffee or tea.

Food writer Jen Lin Liu travels the Silk Road, immersing herself in a moveable feast of foods and cultures and discovering some surprising truths about commitment, independence, and love.
 Feasting her way through an Italian honeymoon, the author of Serve the People: A Sti-Fried Journey Through China and founder of Beijing's Black Sesame Kitchen was struck by culinary echoes of the delicacies she ate and cooked back in China, where she'd lived for more than a decade.

Who really invented the noodle? she wondered, like many before her. But also: How had food and culture moved along the Silk Road, the ancient trade route linking Asia to Europe-and what could still be felt of those long-ago migrations? On the Noodle Road chronicles her discovery of the connections, both historical and personal, eating a path through western China and on into Central Asia, Iran, Turkey, and across the Mediterranean, sharing recipes in private kitchens where the headscarves come off, hearing stories and gaining a new appreciation of her own marriage, and love freely chosen.
