Say cheese at Swissotel
Escape the chill of winter by warming up with Swiss cheese fondue @ Cafe Swiss. It comes paired with garden salad, air-dried beef and a choice of dessert or fruit. It’s the familiar hotpot with a difference, a tradition from Switzerland that is simple but fun to eat. Chunks of bread are speared on unique “Swiss” fondue forks and dipped into a pot of melted cheese. There are also crisp gherkins, baby potatoes and cherry tomatoes. The promotion is available every Saturday and Sunday evening from now until Jan 31, for 496 yuan ($82) for two. The Swiss Raclette set includes crispy salad, raclette with baby potato, cocktail onions, cherry tomato, bread and a glass of house wine. Swissotel Beijing. 010-6553-2288 Ext 2127.
