This was one of the most memorable meals we had on our trip to China. The restaurant is huge and brightly lit and you sit at communal yellow tables. We were the only westerners in the restaurant and locals were definitely eyeing us suspiciously but we had read how to prepare the mutton stew so we at least looked like we knew what we were doing.
The food here is cheap but absolutely delicious. We had lamb dumplings and their specialty, yangrou paomo (shredded bread soaked in mutton stew). You tear the dense bread into small pieces in your bowl which the servers then take away and fill with hearty mutton stew causing the bread to expand into delicious dumpling morsels. It is such a hearty, simple, but addictive dish. I dream about this stew.
