Walls decorated with old newspapers from the “cultural revolution” period; wait staff kitted out as revolutionary heroes; and red flags and stars all around. It’s fair to say that the revolutionary-nostalgia restaurant genre holds little appeal for fans of subtle design. Genjudi mainly specializes in Hebei cuisine, but does offer dishes from many other parts of China. Prices are reasonable, although getting out to Daxing inevitably adds to the total expense. Try the baked donkey meat cake (驴肉火烧, RMB 4) and shoubai chang (手掰肠, RMB 16). Revolutionary “model operas” daily 12.30-1.30pm, 7.30-8.30pm.
