Mutton-focused Uyghur cuisine from Western China is the unusual specialty at this neighborhood noodle shop. Handmade leghmen noodles, long thick noodles topped with stir-fried meats and vegetables, are perhaps the most famous dish of the region, but the real standouts here are the beautifully spiced lamb and other kebabs.

The meat pies (gosh nan) are also worth a try, as is the voluminous wonton soup, filled with plump and meaty dumplings. Service is friendly and casual; budget around Y2500-3500 for dinner with a few drinks.
