I've lived in China just shy of two months and in the northwest, it's hard to find good American food. I kept my expectations low because I know it's hard to get all the right ingredients for western food in China, but Jesse blew me...More

It’s directly across the street from the old North Gate. So have a taxi driver drop you at Xining Bingguan and then keep walking east on that side of the street until you find elites.

American style western food with homebrew beer and cider along with mixed drinks Menu Includes fire grilled steak and burgers, smoked bbq ribs, Italian thin crust pizza along with fish and salads. Deserts include tiramisu, chocolate cake, cheesecake and brownies. 95% of what we make here is from scratch and authentic in western American flavor. Most meals range around 50 yuan for pizzas, sandwiches, burgers etc. Steaks are also priced very competitively and have been chosen after years of trying to find a good quality meat and we cut it thicker than anywhere in China that Ive been to. Recommended Foods Include: Extra Tender Filet 128 yuan 250g Rib Eye 168 yuan 350g Top Cut Rib Eye 298 yuan 350g Chicken Wings 58 yuan for a large order Smoked BBQ Ribs 158 yuan for a large order Almond Crusted Salmon 98 yuan All prices subject to change. Elites is known for its true western flavor and is the go to place for local expats to experience the flavor of home.
