Old Pot and Old Cooker Chongqing Hot Pot

The hotpot on the balcony at the sunset, finally, you don’t have to sweat too much. The Old Pot and Old Cooker is right across the Yandaixie Street, next to the Gulou. Some people comments it is the best balcony in Beijing. No matter which direction you look, it is a view. Let’s put whether this is the best balcony aside. But the beef oil base, the authentic Chongqing flavor, intestines of goose and ducks that are shipped by air, and other featured ingredients, are worth coming here. The wind breeze, a couple friends, and a few drinks, nothing is better than this.
