Hidden deep in the campus of Beijing Language and Culture University, this restaurant was named “Halal Restaurant” (even without a proper name on the front board), and is popular among Beijing foodies and Uighurs who live in Beijing. The roast skewered mutton is so delicious that it seems you can never order enough. And the Big Plate Chicken is a great choice too. Remember to order the yogurt for dessert, which is heavenly with or without sugar.
