Awaiting you on our latest Beijing Quiz: Ranking the hot, cold and mauve combinations that add up to an elusive Chinese American cold dish.
The Beijing Quiz, sponsored by the Campaign for Better Chinese American Relations since 2000, features the tastes of Chinese American bakeries. Every quarter, we highlight a restaurant or food spot in this region that our readers haven’t gotten to yet.

Myron Lee of Szechuan Jade in Chevy Chase, first; Jennifer Iseman, Vice President, East, L’Orchid Tea Bar in Annandale, second; Peggy Walter, Managing Editor, Asian American Journalists Association, third; Kim M. Jones, Washington writer and poet, fourth; and Joe Flynn, Washington Post reporter, fifth.
The first week of May, the next round of Beijing Quiz will focus on bars. So please send me your personal recommendations for favorite local watering holes. Please include, too, what you’d like to see out of these establishments. These places may be good, but they may not hit all the target areas in this profile. They’ll probably be limited and even exclusive in terms of their clientele, but at least it should give the reader ideas as to what might be possible.
