Beijing: Agua – Just a Pretty Face
Despite the smog, Beijing ranks No. 8 of the Top 10 Global Cities this year, according to 2014 Global Cities Index by A.T. Kearney. But smog is not the only flaw of my glorious hometown, the embarrassing low quality standard of its western restaurants is also bothering me every time when I go back.
Agua, part of the Aqua restaurant group from Hong Kong, has opened its door in Beijing since 2008, as one of the upper class Spanish restaurants in town. I like its interior a lot, from colour scheme to lighting design; so elegant and trendy at the same time, pretty and refined, perfect place for a date.
