Donkey was first eaten out of necessity and remains a favourite. This restaurant chain from Hejian, a Hebei province city famous for donkey, is popular all over China. The donkey meat here is hand-sliced to order before being sandwiched inside a crisp bing (a northern style flatbread) and served warm or at room temperature.

The order lingo is huo shao (4RMB), but add a side of broth (qing tang; 2RMB) for the ultimate soup and sandwich combo bargain. This is China’s answer to an Irish corned beef or a New York-style pastrami sandwich.


9am-10pm daily
