Q: Any Middle Eastern or Arab grocery stores in Beijing?

I really feel like buying hummus and falafels, but I have no idea if I can find this anywhere.

No you probably won't be able to find Middle Eastern or Arab groceries in Beijing. They only open grocery stores that would appeal to the entire community not just a select few. Also, if there are any but I doubt it it would probably be a small local owned one. Chances are slim to none. You definitely won't find a big Arab grocery store in Beijing. I've never seen one nor heard of one.

I would imagine that there would be some, we had them in Guilin which is a very small city in the interior of China.
One good bet is to check near mosques, as they often include products from the Middle East in addition to food that is prepared in accordance to Muslim traditions.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
