This is an International restaurant, the serve risotto, pastas, Mexican, sea food, Croatian, breakfast and more. Located just outside the center, Bistro Toc is a great place to make a detour to. They have a small raised Shamiana outside the restaurant where you can sit and enjoy your meal on a pleasant day. The Shamiana has cool funky art, warm stone walls and lots of beautiful plants.

We immediately gravitated to the Mexican options, as almost all our other meals were Italian. The waiters were super helpful, and happily catered to our needs. They serve fresh guac with chips and even the bravest of hearts can’t resist that. We ordered the vege quesedilla, taco salad and chips with salsa. Read more

Who would think that I would find a good, veggie friendly, Mexican restaurant in Beijing! Believe it or not, I did! Located in the ‘upscale’ and ‘modern’ part of the city, Cantina Agave is your local neighborhood Taqueria and Tequileria. An outpost of the famed Mexican restaurant in Shanghai, Cantina Agave is taking the youth and expats of Beijing by storm.

Fashioned with brightly painted walls and stenciled graffiti of lizards, dancers and all things ‘Mexican’, the interiors of Cantina Agave are a welcome sight to the weary non-Chinese traveler. The place has a fun and carefree vibe that encapsulates you while you are there. And if that did not dispel your weariness, the extensive wall of Tequila choices definitely will. The eatery bravely displays its 3 lever tequila bar to it’s customers, mixing potent Margaritas and Mojitos amongst other lesser known, but equally toxic cocktails.  Read more
