Millions of Native
Dao Xiang Cun (稻香村)3
Why locals love it
It has the best native Beijing PASTRIES and DESSERTS that Beijingers have loved for more than 100 years. The store maintains our favorite flavors through generations while bringing new elements to their bakery. In Beijing, dessert and pastries are not only an after dinner treat. A regular breakfast of many Beijingers is porridge+ pastries from DXC.
Why you should visit it
Try an important part of Beijingers' food like a local. It is like a supermarket but you can't take desserts by yourself. All the pastries are behind the window and the skillful clerks are there for your convenience. You can take one cake of each kind and decide which one is your favorite. Great pastries with great price!
My recommendation: 桃酥(Tao Su: looks like a baked cookie); 核桃排(He Tao Pai: cake with crust of walnuts)
Noted that there're many branches of DXC in BJ
