Where to get your breakfast in DC (there’s even a vegetarian option)

For a Brit like me, there is no better way to start a weekend than with a good full English breakfast. Say what you will about British food, but a good breakfast is definitely our thing. So without further ado, here is a list of places where you can get a frying pan in Beijing.

Arrow Factory

Besides making my favorite fish and chips in town, Arrow Factory also gets my vote for the best breakfast because they use English style sausage and bacon. Simply called The Full English (80 CNY), it consists of two pork sausages, two slices of bacon, baked beans, mushrooms, french fries, grilled tomatoes, buttered toast, and two eggs any way you choose.

Now, this is a great brunch for meat lovers, but Arrow Factory recently introduced a brand new brunch that is sure to become a favorite of any vegetarian. The Vegetarian English (RMB 75) has two sausages, baked beans, mushrooms, stir-fries, roasted tomatoes, and croutons with guacamole and scrambled tofu.

Note: Arrow Factory brunch is available on Saturdays and Sundays only

jing a

At CBD Jing-A, they have a special brunch menu available only at this location, which makes it big with their full American CBD breakfast (RMB 120) – not English, but still important – consisting of pork sausage, homemade bacon, Roasted cherry tomatoes, mashed new potatoes, toast with a mound of pies, maple syrup and eggs cooked your way.

But don’t worry if you can’t make it to CBD Jing-A, as all of their other locations have a breakfast plate (110 CNY) on display (not available at the new Wukesong branch until July 23). This sees homemade bacon, pork sausage, mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, hash browns, toast and two eggs cooked your way plus your choice of mashed avocado or sausage gravy all making for the perfect way to start your day.

Toast at the Orchid

It should come as no surprise that one of Beijing’s hottest brunch spots, Toast at The Orchid has stir-fry (of sorts) on their menu. Serving you a slightly less traditional, but still delicious breakfast, Toast at The Orchid has The Full Chinglish (CNY98). Here Toast’s pork sausage is served with hash browns, boiled eggs and greens alongside a slice of challah bread.

Having introduced their brunch menu just a few months ago, Beersmith is the only frying pan on this list that contains a traditional ingredient for English breakfast: the controversial black pudding. Along with black pudding, breakfast + drinks at Beersmith Pub (98 CNY) includes eggs, Cumberland sausage, bacon, arugula salad, roasted tomatoes, and baked beans. You can then also choose handcrafted coffee, tea or beer to wash everything down with.

plan B

Plan B’s skillet almost gives off a slight Shakshuka vibe with its Western Breakfast Skillet (RMB 80) that combines roasted potatoes, peppers, and onions and is then topped with bacon, chorizo ​​sausage, cheddar cheese, and two eggs. Now, you have to admit that adding cheese to the frying sounds like a great idea.

Lily’s American Diner keeps things super simple with their jumbo breakfast (RMB 95) consisting of two eggs, two slices of bacon, one slice of country ham, two sausages, toast plus hash browns. Although bacon and sausage isn’t what you’d classify as “proper” British sausage and bacon, this big breakfast is a surefire way to start your weekend, especially if you’re sick of a hangover.
