Tribe Beijing : What a pleasant surprise to find the scene brightening up with homegrown organic food – with a selection of gluten free baked options and green juices made à la minute. I’ve been out of the scene for a while, but the young lady who served me told me they’ve just been opened for 3 months. I didn’t get to try the food here having eaten too many meals in a day, but I saw the table beside me devouring a salad and chicken wings – they looked great and I’m sure they are. I can’t wait to go back and eat there.
Brain child of Chef Brandon Trowbridge (of NOLA – one of my favourite brunch places when I was still living in Beijing), someone is finally shaking up the scene to make good and healthy food available for those who choose to.
I know some friends adamant that the gluten free diet is bullshit, but I’ve gone through so many rounds of blood tests for allergy and I am in fact gluten sensitive that makes me bloat and gives me swollen ankles from water retention. I won’t die from gluten consumption, but it certainly makes me feel bloated and awful!
Good coffees, green juices and a selection of gluten free baked goods – a great way to spend the afternoon. Oh, and they have high speed wifi too.
China View, 2 Gongti Dong Lu, Chaoyang district (its at the Hooters building in Sanlitun where the Den is located, but if you live in Beijing, you likely know exactly where it is!)
