Golden Peacock

Fried Potato Balls

Fried Potato Balls

The decor is sparse but the dishes served at this inexpensive Dai ethnic restaurant are packed full of flavor. This is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Beijing – I seriously want someone to go there, pick this restaurant up with a crane, and transport it back to the United States. These fried potato balls are super fluffy and light – I’ve never had anything like them before. We also had a really flavorful vegetarian fried rice, a steamed pork dish, a spicy minty salad, and a spicy potato mash that tasted a LOT better than it looked… If anyone knows of a Dai recipe book, please tell me!
