Tucked beneath a historic bank in DTLA, stylish gastropub Peking Tavern lets you peek (pun intended) into its glass-windowed kitchen, where chefs are busy hand-pulling noodles for the restaurant's addictive Beijing street food. You'll witness the time and care that goes into the authentic dishes here -- from handmade dumplings with boiled crab, pork, and cabbage to noodle soups with braised beef shank and Chinese sauerkraut. Even the cocktails at Peking's full bar are specialty, like the Liquid Jade with xi feng bai jiu (a pea-flavored drink made from barley), lemon and celery juices, and simple sugar.
