are you a pants or shorts kind of person? ice cream on cup or ice cream on cone? rainy chilly or warm sticky weather? clothes with sleeves or without? colorfully painted or clear nails? swimming pool or sea? exploring the forests or oceans? passionate about science or arts? sand or seashell collection? hanging or potted plants?
Taurus : an entire french press that was made at home that will last the owner approximately an hour before they make another one but you can bet your buttons it was locally sourced
Gemini : iced, black coffee, with 2 packets of splenda, every day at the exact same time, from the same Starbucks on the corner. The barista knows everything and nothing about them.
Cancer : a medium mocha, left to cool down on the window sill with latte art on top that you see on instagram but the photographer spilled it everywhere right after getting the perfect shot and now has to deal with sticky clothes and half the coffee they wanted
Leo : that one pot of coffee in the office that inexplicably makes better coffee so it’s always full except when you want to get a drink and you know all the machines are the same and all the packets of pre measured coffee are the same but stillllll
Virgo : an iced latte surrounded by empty iced latte cups you find surrounding a sleeping student in the library at 8 am how long have they been there the campus coffee shop closes at midnight and opens at 6 how do they have so many empty cups
Libra : a half empty cup of mystery coffee someone left on the bus because I guess they must have been in a hurry to get off why would you disrespect your coffee like this?
Scorpio : a cup of plain black coffee when the owner actually wanted a frappuccino but screwed up so now they’re overloading it with honey and cinnamon and now it’s undrinkable but they’ll choke it down anyway to save face even though no one cares
Sagittarius : a piping hot pumpkin spiced latte drunk with friends who all have the exact same thing, they pretend they’re drinking it ironically, only one person actually likes the taste but will pretend they don’t
Capricorn : a light roast dry cappuccino from the local coffee house in a reusable coffee cup they got from a local artist with eight fucking shots of espresso in it where did they all go you will die if you aren’t careful man what are you doing man
Aquarius : it’s tea except when anyone’s looking
Pisces : it’s actually hot chocolate, can’t stand the taste of coffee except when they’re studying then it’s an americana with 9 packs of sugar and tears
Hi guys! Yesterday I went to the restaurant Yuuri and Victor taking hot pot in ep6, and the newsstand where Guang-hong has his 煎饼 and meets Leo, and the ice rink and the official hotel of China Cup.
I also post it on my twitter.Part 2 of my YOI travel of the stadium, the hotel and the newsstand in Beijing, click here.
It will be a really long report, so I decided to divide it into two parts. Part 1 is the hot pot restaurant appeared in ep6.
The restaurant’s name is “深巷子”, which means “deep alley”. But in the anime it was changed to “深老子”. (I guess it’s because of copyright? XDDD)
it’s little bit hard to find the location. So I wonder how Sayo & Kubo found it.
There are YOI posters on its gate and wall showing this is where the anime Yuri!!! on ice chose a location.
The restaurant in reality looks like almost the same as in the anime. (The background artists might cry when Sayo&Kubo showed them the reference photos of this place XDDD)
The restaurant staff know YOI and know what’s going on. They even serve YOI special meal and play “history maker” and eros as BGM. The staff said many YOI fans came here for cosplay in last winter when YOI just ended.
This dish is duck blood that Victor takes in ep6. Yes, it’s real DUCK BLOOD. I know it sounds weird for non-Chinese, but it taste really great. The duck blood they served is different from what I used to eat… it’s a dish of liquid, fresh blood, not blood Tofu. At the end pouring the blood into the pot and it clots, then you can take it~
BTW, actually hot pot restaurants don’t have crabs or drunk shrimp in their menu. Sayo&Kubo mixed the cuisine they had in China.
The full name of this restaurant is 深巷子老灶火锅（白石桥店）The address is 紫竹桥新苑街16号(白石桥地铁口6号线9号线，首体南路与新苑街交叉口东行50米路南)
You can also see the hotel “Hotel Nikko New Century Beijing”and the stadium “Capital Indoor Stadium” of China Cup in this map.
And more picture in the restaurant.
Phichit: Hello! Yuuri!
Guang-Hong: Is it to post this online?
I tool these pictures at the front door of the restaurant.
