Sanlitun's Best Place for Annual Get-Togethers is Right Under Your Nose
快3开奖结果查询As the year draws to a close, it’s time to think about celebrating with colleagues or catching up with friends you haven’t seen for a while. However, every time friends get together, the biggest headache is always choosing which restaurant to go to. Everyone always wants something different and if you’re not careful, you can waste half the night deciding what to eat.
As luck would have it, Sanlitun restaurant Café Ruhe is here to solve that problem with its globetrotting menu that features dishes from German, Thailand, Mexico, China, the US, and beyond. Put that together with a drinks menu that includes freshly-poured German draft beer served in paddles with up to 11 glasses and you have a recipe for a great get-together.?
快3开奖结果查询The name Café Ruhe comes from a German word meaning “peace.” The founders chose this name to reflect how they want customers to feel when they are eating at the restaurant: comfortable and at peace like they are in their own home. “Ruhe” (RUHE) also means something akin to “how is it?” in Chinese, demonstrating how important customer feedback is to the team.?
At Café Ruhe, you can start your meal with some spice in Thailand, take a short hop to Japan for tonkatsu, swing by Italy for pasta, and finish your meal with a classic all-American burger. Whether you’re a meat-eater who craves ribs and German-style pork hock or a more delicate diner who prefers soup and a salad, you’ll have no problem finding something that fulfills your cravings. Even more surprisingly, every dish is executed with aplomb thanks to an experienced kitchen team that has traveled the world looking for inspiration.?
The ingredients used are also high-quality, including imported seafood, Mexican corn flour, and Australian beef. Even the burger buns are made by hand every day to an exacting recipe designed to perfectly complement the rest of the burger ingredients.
Signature American cheeseburger
快3开奖结果查询The secret to a great hamburger lies in the proportions of the ingredients and the careful control of the cooking process. Café Ruhe's burger is the result of nearly five years of constant research and recipe tweaking, including multiple trips to the US to taste burgers at popular chains like Shake Shack and In-N-Out.?
快3开奖结果查询All of that has resulted in a burger that is, without a doubt, the juiciest in Beijing, so much so that they serve it with plastic gloves if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t like getting your hands dirty. The signature bacon double cheeseburger strikes the perfect flavor-to-texture balance, thanks to a 100 percent Australian beef patty, a homemade bun, and a combination of 11 different fresh ingredients and seven seasonings. This is one of the juiciest burgers you'll ever eat – smash it down before eating and see the juices literally run out almost like a soup dumpling.?
Crispy shrimp tacos
This famous Mexican dish has been given a special twist by Café Ruhe's chef too, combining homemade Mexican corn tortillas with grilled tiger prawns, as well as a pile of plentiful fillings. The restaurant recommends that you hold everything together and eat each taco in one bite in order to fully experience the wonderful flavor clash of shrimp, avocado, salsa, sour cream, and sweet-sour mango dressing.
German-style roast pork knuckle
Each pork knuckle weighs at least 1.5 kg each, enough for 4-6 people. Don’t forget to order this classic German dish one day in advance, because only a couple are available each day.
The pork knuckles are soaked in a combination of spices and German beer for 24 hours before being put into a steam oven, first at a low temperature to tenderize it and then at a high temperature to make the skin crispy. This is definitely a dish that is best enjoyed in a restaurant as the process is too complex and highly technical to do at home. There is nothing better than the combination of juicy, tender meat and crunchy, salty skin, especially when served with traditional German sauerkraut.
American barbecue pork ribs
The barbecue pork ribs are so meltingly tender that you don’t even need a knife and fork to pull them apart. The ribs are carefully selected with specific requirements for length, width, and fat content. They are marinated and slow-cooked to achieve the perfect texture, before being coated with lashings of barbecue sauce that is sticky but nevertheless doesn’t overwhelm with sweetness.?
Thai tom yum goong seafood noodle soup
Those in search of Asian flavors should start with the tom yum goong, which is as flavorful as any version you will find in Thailand. The chef worked hard to create a soup that is spicy yet fragrant thanks to a blend of more than a dozen spices, but that doesn’t simply attack the taste buds with chili heat. This is certain to be a popular option in colder weather.?
At first glance, you might think that this is a bowl of braised seafood. There are shrimps, mussels, clams, and squid in an aromatic tomato sauce, as well as a generous serving of spaghetti.
