With a population of over 17 million people, Beijing is one of the oldest and largest cities in the entire world. As the capital of the world’s most populous nation, Beijing has developed its own unique culinary culture, and is the home to Peking Duck, fuling jiabing (a pancake-like snack), and many other Mandarin dishes. Given that the capital attracts so many immigrants from other parts of China, and around the world, it easily adapts other gastronomic traditions into its own repertoire.
