Bei Jing Kabobs 串

For this week’s BuHi review, we headed out to Bei Jing Kabobs with our friends from Marie, Let’s Eat! The sign at the street says Te Wei, but the sign above the restaurant only says Bei Jing Kabobs (at least in English – I concede that it could very well say Te Wei in chinese). Referencing EatBufordHighway’s 2011 post, I think it’s likely that the place changed names or hands and that the street-side signs just hasn’t been updated, but I can’t say for sure.

This says… something about kabobs, I am assuming.

The inside was no frills – linoleum flooring and drop ceiling. The only bits of interest were the clear plastic tables, and the fact that the floor tiles spelled out the chinese character for kabob ?.

Te Wei Bei Jing Kabobs menu

The menu, kind of like an all-you-can-eat sushi bar menu. This was helpful, though, because our owner/server did not seem to speak any english.

Between the four of us, we ordered about 14 skewers of chicken, lamb and beef, plus a hot pot to share that came with more skewers in it. We skipped the ox penis kabob, and the sheep testicle kabob, too.

The corn cobs were kick ass. Take that, Long John Silver’s.

We all favored the lamb kabobs the most of all. Adam and I liked the rest of them as well, including the chicken hearts. They were all in the northern chinese style, and were all sprinkled with some sort of chili blend. And, the price was ridiculously cheap – $20 was the grand total. While the atmosphere is lackluster and the service average, the food is solid! The lack of vegetables, sides and adult beverages seem to place Bei Jing Kabobs in the dine-and-dash category, rather than sit-down meal category. And it fulfills that position well. 3 stars.

    Hmmm… I decided to stop here for supper. It was closed at 5:45 pm on a Tuesday night.
    It wasn’t a real problem, because, as you know, there are plenty of food choices at this spot.

      Strange! Do you think they are closed on Tuesdays, or that they just close ridiculously early some days?

        The sign on the door said it was supposed to be open. Perhaps they were stretching out the memorial Day weekend. Since it is only a few blocks from the office, I’ll try again sometime.
