Always thought opulent private dining in China would wilt your wallet? Well think again, Jen…
Nestled in the beautifully renovated courtyard of one of Beijing’s oldest hutongs is customisable private dining experience Mulu, where the dim-lit, Chinoiserie-heavy rooms can accommodate 7-10 diners and the menu can be tailored to personal specifications and budget. Hallelujah!
Of course every MTM experience must be arranged three days in advance, but you can also pop in for their set menu, which changes bi-weekly on the creative whim of hotel-trained chefs Chester Li and Pao-Gwei Mama. And without any set cuisine type, you’re in for a varied ride, with past incarnations spanning kickin’ Asian flaves (chicken in a crab curry soup with mango purée), and earthy Med ingreds (flaky cod with a fennel and sun-blushed tomato salad). Just be sure to get your private party off to a roaring start on their large twinkly-vista’d rooftop with dazzlingly witty repartee and a cheeky snifter…or two. Yes, better make that two.
