TOP 5 PLACES TO GET A NICE HOLIDAY MEAL

7

Article By XIANEASE

2018 is coming to a close and, though we still have a dreary December to trudge through on our way to 2019, there are plenty of reasons to get a nice dinner. Christmas and New Year’s Eve are obvious occasions to dine finely, but whatever reason you have for treating yourself, Xi’an has no shortage of great places to eat. As you make your holiday plans, perhaps this list can give you some ideas. Oh, and since we’re making this issue before December happens (so that you might have it in December) this article will be light on specific details about holiday specials. For that, you’ll have to check our WeChat as the holidays approach. HINT.

01 DUO
西班牙主题餐厅

The Gran Melia hotel’s Duo restaurant is locally renowned for its great food and for being the only authentic Spanish restaurant around. Their authentic Spanish chef will delight your taste buds with steaming servings of paella and to-die-for tapas.

02 ALLEGRO
吃喝玩乐意大利餐吧

The Grand Hyatt hotel’s Allegro restaurant is so good it made one of our reviewers go crazy. Rich and indulgent dishes are the norm here, complemented by grand vistas of the southwest of the city (air pollution allowing). You’ll be spending a pretty penny for the experience, but you’re not likely to find a more fitting occasion to splash out than the holidays.

03 ISOLA DEL NORD
意大利餐厅

Isola was one of Xi’an’s first authentic Italian restaurants and still boasts high-quality food for relatively affordable prices. Holiday specials at the restaurant are always a treat but, regardless, you can’t go wrong with a plate of pasta or a finely cooked piece of filet mignon, both of which are always on the menu.

德国赫佰仕啤酒坊

If you’d like to have a banger in the mouth for this holiday, look no further than Hacker-Pschorr. Surely their huge menu will have something to sate your hunger, and authentic German beers have what it takes to quench your holiday thirst. It’s not so far away from the subway, just a quick trip from Yanpingmen Station.
