Yue Lu

10 Lotus Ln.
Beijing , China

Chinese artist Fang Lijun dips his brush into both the culinary and visual arts, and this Lotus Lane restaurant is an example of his work as a restaurateur. While Fang’s visual art is harshly real, the Hunan food at this Lotus Lane restaurant is far from it. Located in the trendy Xicheng District, Yue Lu's covered outdoor dining area overlooks Hou Hai Lake. The Hunan-style cuisine tends to be pungent and flavorful, and includes such dishes as stir-fried mutton with spices like chili and coriander.
