Food everywhere!! Try the traditional food from the Hui people, and there's a lot of it. There is as well a shopping street where you can buy some souvenirs and don't forget to bargain.

I tried boiled noodle and dumpling. It was a surely nice experience on local tradition. They also have a variety snacks to try on. I regret that I did not have the time to try the popular cold noodle.

i guess it's nice if you've never seen muslims or chinese muslims. Some of the food is decent although most of it is for tourists. It's worth a quick look, but eat elsewhere.

We went to the muslim quarter one afternoon and couldn't believe the amount of street vendors and different types of food. During our afternoon there, we sampled different local dishes. I liked the Chinese hamburger the best. We found one covered alley that appears to be all product knock-offs like Dr. Dre Beats products, different top brand backpacks, gloves, coats,... More

There are so many streets with little shops and food stalls to explore in the Muslim Quarter. Don't miss out on seeing the Great Mosque! It is an amazing site!

It was chilly and rainy, but I just loved all the activity going on here on a Sunday morning. Lots of food stalls, and other stalls in the covered market. It was very crowded, however, but there was so much to see. The mosque with its mix of Chinese and Arab styles was also fascinating.

I think this is one of a few places I can eat street food in China. I tried plenty of food and did not get Diarrhea. I tried the biang biang mian, it's the hand made noodle which good but my favorite is the yang rou tang which is the lamb mutton soup. It is a comfort food and it's... More

This area has a distinct middle eastern flavour that's been around for a thousand years. Colour and slightly crowded on the holiday weekend we visited not with western tourist but people from around Xian - very enjoyable.
