Global Warming: Beijing’s Soups are a Melting Pot of Flavors

If you’re looking to chase off the chill and want to switch things up from the usual hot pot or malatang, you’re in luck. From potage and purées to gumbos and chowders, Beijing restaurants are rolling out soups in a fusion of flavors just in time for winter. 

Head to NOLA near Ritan Park’s South Gate and warm up with a bowl of Chicken & Andouille Sausage Gumbo(RMB 58). The chicory-colored roux, fresh okra, and peppers make NOLA’s a spot-on rendition of this spicy Cajun dish, a blending of African and Caribbean influences popular in Louisiana. Order some sweet beignets for dessert and pretend you’re in New Orleans.
