China Islamic Restaurant Restaurant Review

: A sparse dining room, replete with white walls, florescent lights and a picture of Mecca, recalls all the ambience of the hutong restaurants inside Beijing's Muslim quarter. Order a “dabing” --- a large sesame pancake the size of a deep-dish pizza --- as you sit down. It takes about 15 minutes to make one, and it is the bread for your meal. The restaurant specializes in lamb and beef dishes, as they are the primary meats in the Muslim Halal diet. Lamb and bean soup with noodles to start is thick with comforting flavors. There are plenty of seafood dishes as well, but chicken in brown sauce should not be missed --- a flash-fry based on sweet bean paste, a typical northern Chinese condiment. Large plates like curried lamb or spicy lamb with hot peppers are both well-executed. The knife-cut noodles are also interesting and fun to eat: they are slippery slivers sliced from a ball of dough that can go either with a soup or as a stir-fry.
