Ningxia holds claim to a large population of Hui Muslims. This restaurant’s ownership by the autonomous region’s Beijing government office ensures the kitchen can get hold of fine ingredients – such as lamb from Tanyang that’s raised on mountain herbs including liquorice and alfalfa, rendering the meat less gamey. You can order the whole roast animal or battered, fried parts that are lightly sweet and herbal. Chicken from Zhongning, the land of goji berries is sweet and the basis for a basin of grandmotherly soup. The mix of bitter greens is available year round along with award-winning Ningxia wines. Most employees here are Hui Muslim students from hotel and tourism school, so be patient.
