On the corner of the Vijzelstraat and the Herengracht is a modern Chinese restaurant, P.King. None of your golden dragons or lanterns on the walls here but in their place, a cool decor with walls of basalt blocks and comfortable brown leather designer chairs. Go downstairs for cocktails and upstairs for the restaurant with its living room feel where its clientele of media people, students and tourists come to eat traditional Chinese dishes such as Peking duck, mackerel with black bean sauce and steamed oysters. Unlike other traditional Chinese restaurants, a decent glass of wine can be ordered
