If you ever find yourself in Beijing and need some good Mexican food, The Rickshaw is where it’s at! Open 24/7, this tiny free-standing bar caters to expats, and is a welcome reprieve.
The Rickshaw is a Mexican restaurant, in China, owned by an Aussie. Oooook. Regardless, they have a great burrito, some outstanding nachos, non-Chinese beer, as well as American and Aussie sports on the tube (can I say that since everything is flat scree now?). Being open all night is a godsend! My flight to Beijing gets in near midnight, so by the time I get to the hotel is pushing 01:00 local time…but that’s lunch time when my body is still on Eastern time! Thankfully, The Rickshaw will hook me up with some comfort food, and some beer to help me sleep.
PS The Comfort Inn & Suites is right by The Rickshaw, and I’ve stayed there several times. It’s MUCH nicer than a Comfort Inn in the US, and I’d highly recommend it.
