Xi’an’s bustling Muslim Quarter is home to a community of Hui – one of China’s many ethnic minority groups – who have been living and working in the winding lanes for centuries. Food is an integral part of this neighborhood, and many pajama-clad residents can been found cooking all the local specialties, from hand-pulled noodles and fried persimmon cakes to grilled meats and bread. The air is thick with the scent of coal smoke and spices, and it’s impossible not to sample a few items as you stroll along. This is also a great place to pick up hand-shelled walnuts and dried fruits.
Do you like to eat street food when you’re traveling?
They are to be commended for being so industrious and turning out all that food on such premitive stoves. I love how they display their wares. Mom
I love exploring through this neighborhood. It’s an impressive place!
