Mei Mansion 梅府家宴
The former home of one of China's most famous opera stars, Mei Langfang, famous for his cross-dressing female roles, this traditional courtyard hidden away in a Houhai hutong serves fine food in private dining rooms. Stylish and definitely not cheap, Mei Mansion can be hard to find so set out early.
