In China’s far western city of Urumqi (the capital of Xinjiang), the food becomes less Chinese and more Middle eastern. Here you find Muslim cuisine that shows just how diverse China really is. I was super lucky to try the lamb kebabs cooked on the street on my way back to Chengdu from Turkey.

I had a quick layover on my way back home to Chengdu from Istanbul in Urumqi. There was only one thing to do, eat Xinjiang food and compare the Kebabs to the Turkish kebab that was still in my stomach from the night before.

The total cost was 50 RMB ($7.87) for 3 awesome dishes:

5 Huge lamb kebabs
4 huge steamed pumpkin baozi
and one massive rounang bun filled with juicy lamb and onion

All in all, the food here was super delicious, except for the lamb kebabs. Ironically, I came specifically to try them, but they ended up being the least delicious of the three. The rounang took the number one spot and was crowned the most delicious Xinjiang food I tried in my very very short stay in Urumqi.

  1. The people in Xingiang are called Uyghars. Actually they are a branch of Turkish. The ancient Turkish people traveled from here, thru' Middle East and settled in Turkey. However, there were some who would not risk to take a long journey. They are Uyghars.
    Their language are more or less the same.

  2. I don't know how many times I should say that to you… they have a name. STOP CALLING THEM CHINESE MUSLIM PEOPLE THEY ARE TURKIC. Are u doing that on purpose? They aren't Chinese they are fathers of Turks
