Jin Shan Cheng (Gold Mountain City), with a couple of dozen branches around the city, is one of Beijing’s most popular and affordable Sichuan chains. You’ll typically find groups of friends tucking into fiery hotpots washed down with beer or pungent baijiu (white spirit). You can get all the usual Sichuan favorites here – ganbian siji dou (spicy green beans), mapo doufu (spicy bean curd) and lazi ji (spicy chicken pieces).
