Tibet Tour from Beijing - Beijing Food Notes

Beijing acts as the capital of many ancient dynasties of China, thus the food here is also called Capital Cuisine. The rules are almost from the northern nomadic tribes, except the Emperor of Ming Dynasty. At that time, the ruling class controlled the dishes available from Beijing's catering trade, which mainly was meat. The Mongolian rulers of the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) were especially fond of mutton, and 80% of the dishes in their palace were made of mutton. In fact, the cuisine at that time is totally dominated by ruling class to cater to their eating habit. This diet habit still exists today such as stewed mutton, instant-boiled mutton, quick-fried mutton tripe, and fried dumplings with minced mutton.
