Niu Jie (牛街)- the Muslim district in Beijing

Even Dong Lai Shun (东来顺), the largest hotpot chain in Beijing and possibly in China, takes on a Muslim architectural look.

Jian Bing (煎饼), a local street delicacy. Now made on a big turntable.

Niu Jie Mosque, all built in Chinese architectural style, now with Arabic engraving.

Niu Jie Mosque is the largest mosque in Beijing. Pictured here is the Worship Hall.

After visiting the mosque, we went for Muslim food in a local restaurant. This chef, probably from Xinjiang, is making lamb skewers (羊肉串).
