  • Xinjiang Fanzhuang Xinjiang Fanzghuang flies fresh mutton in from Urumqi every day and caters to officials from Xinjiang who are visiting or resident in Beijing, so short of making your own journey to the west this is the most authentic desert eating you are likely to find.

  • Grape Restaurant Some people come here for the excellent mutton kebabs and noodles, others come to watch the belly dancers.

  • Vanilla Garden Vanilla Garden has good tea and coffee as well as high quality vegetarian food. Good service and that wonder of wonders, an English menu. Sit here, sip your coffee slowly and take advantage of the free wireless Internet. There’s a second branch called Lily Vegetarian.

  • Still Thoughts Vegetarian Restaurant Why do vegetarians eat mock meat? You’ll be too busy wondering how they make it so convincing to worry about that. As the name suggests, this is a quiet and friendly place, well worth a visit.
