When staying at The Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street, you will never go hungry. Jet-lagged guests visiting from the States who find themselves awake during odd hours of the night can easily enjoy tasty treats in their room at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. As befitting a luxury property, the room service menu offers a variety of foods including Western favorites as well as Chinese dishes. For guests who want to stick with what’s familiar, the menu offers a classic Caesar salad; a club sandwich made with chicken breast, aged cheddar and crispy bacon; or a Wagyu burger made with Australian beef and topped with tomatoes and melted cheddar on a sesame bun. Local options include a crab salad appetizer that’s on the lighter side of the dishes offered and is made with Asian greens, tobiko caviar, peanuts and topped with a lemon dressing. Soups that will suit either type of eater are the hot and sour seafood soup or creamy mushroom that’s served with rye bread and mascarpone cheese. Vegetarians aren’t overlooked and can order the wok-fried broccoli that’s also served with tofu in a soya sauce. The menu also features grill items from both the land and sea, like a prime tenderloin or red snapper served with your choice of sauce. Waking up with a sweet tooth? If you want something more than the treats the mini-bar offers, try the New York cheesecake or the double fudge chocolate cake.
