Beijing International School Expo will serve up many schools and much education information, but as of yet no food vendors. But don’t despair! We have a comprehensive list of restaurants you can visit before and after the event. Visiting the school expo is a good excuse to check out this neighborhood in Beijing, and do some dining and shopping. The Viva mall is packed with eateries, like Korean bbq and the Italian Tomato Tree. We have collected a few spots you can relax before or after shopping for a school, with or without the kids.
Wagas offers fresh healthy food for everybody; everyday fare like pasta, sandwiches and smoothies. Wagas is a safe bet for a family-friendly lunch or dinner. I am a big fan of the green wraps, as they make me feel extra healthy.
Tiger Pancake House serves not only pancakes but also burgers, salads, and fresh juices. This restaurant makes for a great weekend indulgence. I know I can’t wait to get my hands on some juicy pancakes with ice cream and strawberries.
American food but all vegan – don’t tell the kids the burger is not real meat. This restaurant is colorful and the meat substitutions are like the real thing. The picture does not lie, all these dishes look too good to eat.
This American Diner serves – you guessed it – American cuisine. The Lilys burger with coleslaw is a tasty treat, and their all day breakfast and milkshakes make any child (and adult) happy.
Simple pizzas and cocktails, to drown away the tuition fee blues. What better way to round off the school expo than with dinner and a drink at this hip, industrial-style restaurant?
Sports bar with new added taco flavors on the menu. If you don’t feel like American fare, these tacos seem like a very good compromise.
