Top 10 Xinjiang Restaurants in Beijing

The Uygurs are a Muslim ethnic group from Xinjiang Autonomous Region in the Northwest. There are Uygurs all over the city selling lamb shish kebob, but there are two places where they are fairly concentrated together, one is tempted to call them ghettos. These two locations, Weigongcun and Ganjiakou, abound with Uygur restaurants. If you are walking by around dinner time, prepare yourself to get accosted by 'grabbers', sort of like 'greeters' at other restaurants, except these guys tugs on your sleeve and try to drag you into their place.

Nothing hostile, just very persistent. The best thing at these top 10 Xinjiang restaurants in Beijing is the roast fried spicy mutton (chao kao rou), square noodles in tomato sauce (chao pian'r), and the round nang bing, a type of bread which is scrumptious when piping hot, and hard as a rock when cool. There is also a smaller, fatter type of round bread which can satisfy a bagel-craving. The roadside shishkabob can be delicious, too, but is not always the paramount of sanitary foodstuffs.
