Restaurant review: Starfish in Beijing, China

A restaurant I like to patronize in Beijing is Starfish, just across the street from the Australian and Canadian embassies.

A few weeks back, on a beautiful Sunday morning, I had lunch there again, a lunch which did not disappoint me.


Starfish menu and Coriole info

I was quite surprised to find an add on my table ecouraging the diner to order a wine from Australia. In this case it was from Coriole, a winey in South Australia which I had visited some years ago. I love Coriole wines. The place belomgs to the “must see” category if you travel in this part of Australia. However, the price was a bit on the high side (more than 300 Yuan RMB).

My fish dish

I ordered a white fish dish. The portion looked small, but was perfectly able to fill my stomach, and satify my taste buds.

I ordered a bottle of the house wine, a wine from Chile. Because of a free trade agreement between China and Chile, the bottle costs about half what the Coriole wine was priced.

Long Country, Sauvignon Blanc from Chile

The Sauvignon Blanc from Santa Carolina, one of the largest wine producers in Chile, is of course an “industrial wine”.

Nonetheless, it shows an aromatic nose with hints of lemon and tangerine. On the palate, there’s the characteristic grass hints and some citrus. It’s dry and light and matched my choice of a fish dish perfectly.

The restaurant was rather empty at themtime of the day I visited. As always the service was very attentive and professional. At Starfish you get quality for your money.

    But, as an example, losing 10 pounds of water in 3
    days is just plain ridiculous; it’s bad for your
    heart, the skin, and let’s face it, it is extremely temporary weight loss.

    So, while you stock on bibs, spoons and bowls, allow me to share some things
    to hold in mind:.

  14. The best thing about using The Invisalign system is
    that it is possible to remove them. This is no longer the case; developments in the
    field of dentistry have led to another alternative: Invisalign treatment.
    Innovative dental implants look, feel and perform just like natural teeth not only giving the patient a healthy, strong and beautiful smile but also the confidence
    to recover their integral health. Seek advice from your family, new neighbors and
    friends who are familiar with the area. Veneers
    are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic that are permanently attached to the
    front of your teeth. A dream smile, irrespective of any physical obstacles that you
    might have, is possible today. But going to the dentist is a
    reality that we need to recognize especially if we want to have a really great smile.

    You will find several dental clinics offering TMJ treatment in Washington. Whenever, they need to replace one or more missing teeth and in a lot of cases all their missing teeth due to accidents or severe periodontal disease, dental
    implants can be the most cost-effective solution in the short,
    medium and long-term. If that’s not all, since
    the insurance company doesn’t provide you with insurance for these expenses, it doesn’t
    provide you with a lists of cosmetic dentists in Encino either.
