A bunch of Beijing restaurants with Canadian owners, managers or chefs will participate in Grade-Eh Week from June 25 to July 1 by featuring foods with a Canuck theme on their menus (more details here). One of these is Switch! Grill, which Adam Goodman says will have both food and drink options.
BB: What are your items for Canada Grade-Eh Week?
Goodman: Maple syrup-glazed ribs and a Caesar / Bloody Mary bar. [Caesar's by the glass during Grade-Eh Week, by the pitcher on July 1, and at the dedicated bar during brunch on July 1.]
What is the one food / restaurant you miss most from Canada?
I miss super fresh seafood and a restaurant called COAST.
What is the one Chinese food / restaurant you like most in Beijing?
Ding Tai Fung dumplings! And the Golden Attic Tripod dim sum restaurant. [Huh? - Ed]
If you could bring any food or beverage franchise from British Columbia to China, what would it be?
Clamato and Alexander Keith’s beer.
If you opened a restaurant dedicated to Canadian food, what would you call it?
SWITCH! No, seriously, The Maple Beaver? Clamato’s?
