There’s a way of eating in Beijing that’s just made for Melbourne – it’s called shaokao. When the sun goes down, fast-casual restaurants set up outside to grill skewered meats and vegetables for families, commuters and eventually the late-night-sit-around-with-a-beer-crowd – and if anything defines ELLA's regulars it’s exactly that.
Beyond Beijing you’ll find shaokao on street corners and night markets in almost every city in China – and now at Pick-A-Sick in ELLA. To describe them simply as skewers is a disservice. The sticks of meat and veg are dusted in a tastebud-tingling spice mix (pro tip: Always opt for Szechuan peppercorns), cooked to order and washed down with ice cold beer.
