Full description
The Muslim Quarter’s narrow lanes are full of butcher shops, sesame oil factories, smaller mosques hidden behind enormous wooden doors, men in white skullcaps and women with their heads covered in colored scarves. Steeped in history, the neighborhood has housed a largely Muslim population since the 7th century. Many of the dishes served have changed little since that time. With a group of 7 people or fewer, this tour will offer incredible smells and tastes.

Chefs stir-fry lamb and spices in hot woks set over blazing hot coal ovens. Nearby, hawkers roast walnuts or sell prunes of varying prices and degrees of quality. Stacks of bamboo baskets filled with mutton and beef dumplings steam away next to fresh fruit vendors and old ladies stir-frying potatoes.

In addition to tasting the exquisite local cuisine, you can also choose the option to explore the largest and best-preserved of the early mosques of China like the Great Mosque, which was built primarily in the Ming Dynasty when Chinese architectural elements were synthesized into mosque architecture.

After walking through the main street, your tour guide will lead you to the small lane in the quarter to the Sajinqiao area, where the real delicacies are.
