Jiang Yu and Ellie Bouttell check out some of Qingdao’s best lunch and brunch spots As the weather warms, blossoms bloom and everyone starts to relax a little, REDSTAR thought it was high time we honored the tradition of taking your time over a breakfast lunch. Below are some little tips for must-eat lunches in Qingdao.   The Brunch Club The Brunch Club is the out and out winner here for the quality of the all-day brunch they offer, as well as the environment that you can eat it in. Situated just by Guoxin Stadium’s south gate, the interior is warmly decorated and stocked with a mouthwatering menu, including smoked salmon, pancakes with real, gooey maple syrup (delicious!!), waffles, burgers and salads, as well as Bloody Marys and Mimosas for those in need of some hair of the dog. Most importantly, floor to ceiling windows mean that the entire place is full of sunlight all day long. Mix this with great service, and The Brunch Club cements itself as a Qingdao gem and a great place to chill out. Address: Inside Guoxin Stadium South Gate 国信体育场南门内 Phone: 8889-5517   PuGan Ocean View Coffee A more hidden place for a relaxed lunch and coffee is PuGan. Situated high up, with windows that peek over other buildings to the sea, this PuGan is full of homely, stripey chairs, plants, and wooden...

When times are hard, I always think about those promises and her reaction when...

It’s not often that the City of Beer gets excited about a new beer place opening, but there’s definitely something different in the air with the opening of Qingdao’s newest bar. T’9 (young-people shorthand for ‘tonight’, perhaps..?) is Qingdao’s first “beer supermarket”. It just had its debut in the middle of April, and has already struck a chord with bargoers all over the city with its winningly simple setup. T’9 flaunts a fabulously fangbian way of selling drinks: the same way you’d buy them at 7-11. Simply come in, choose your drink from over 100 varieties of imported and...
