Si Fang San Chuan is on the second floor of the newly opened Mercedes Me in Beijing, a Mercedes-Benz display center in which you can see car and gallery shows and experience the taste delights of four signature food and beverage outlets including SFSC.
Since opening, the restaurant, with its backdrop of swish cars replete with fine German engineering, seems to have attracted a lot of people who are no doubt expecting it to be a little different to the run-of-the-mill restaurant.
With that kind of inquisitiveness and expectation we went there at lunchtime. But before dealing with that, I should say something about the restaurant's name, consisting of four simple Chinese characters, si, fang, san and chuan.
