Xi'an - Muslim Quarter

After an exhausting hard sleeper journey from Pingyao, we arrived in Xi'an tired and hungry. Luckily the hostel had a room ready for us. We spent the rest of the day wandering around the Muslim quarter. You could easily spend a week wandering around here, sampling foods from the hundreds of restaurants and street vendors. Among other things, we tried the stuffed, fried breads (delicious and very spicy), the local sweet, sticky rice, flavoured with rose and black sesame – it tasted a little bit like Turkish delight, and another local favourite, a pea-flour based pastry – perfect with a cup of tea.

Following the “food-on-a-stick” theme, I was tempted to try the egg kebabs.


You should have seen them putting the raw eggs on the skewer – now that’s a skill.
