An exemplary Hui Muslim restaurant, the food here keeps in tradition. Baodu (爆 肚), a classic Hui tripe dish, is available along with a plateful of tangliu juanguo (糖溜卷果), chunks of sweetmeat with yam, dates, sour plums and walnuts that are sticky with hints of Silk Road flavours. The lovable mung bean mush with lamb fat, madoufu (麻豆腐), goes well with garlicky slices of lamb head cheese called suantouyangtou (蒜头羊头). This is also where to order you xiang (油香), golden fluffy Muslim beignets doused with sugar.
