Pizza Express Taikoo Li is now fully up and running and have introduced two set lunch menu options: RMB 65 gets you the light lunch set (a half-portion main and a drink), while RMB 98 gets you the executive lunch set (one starter, one main and a drink). Mains cover salads, classic pizzas and a few pastas.

We got wind from Chinese lifestyle site that Niajo have launched a new unlimited weekend brunch in the style of its other Spanish neighbour in Nali Patio, Agua. Order as much as you like from a menu of freshly cooked dishes for RMB 248 per person (not including drinks). We’ll be back to check it out soon. 

Elsewhere in the realms of eating as much as possible on a Sunday afternoon, the DoubleTree by Hilton over in Xicheng have kicked off their “Live and Artistic Outdoor BBQ Pool Party”. Pay RMB 228 per person and get access to their frankly very lovely rooftop garden, indoor swimming pool and free rein on the BBQ meats. Add RMB 128 for free flow wine, beer and two kinds of cocktails. Every Sunday, noon-4pm (rain permitting).

Finally, there is a new player in Beijing’s burgeoning fresh juice market. Launching in late July, the Saturday Juice Project promises to deliver fresh squeezed juice to your door every Saturday morning. Check out their website and sign up for a free trial (although for now they can only drop off in and around the Guanshuyuan compound).
