Street eats, local secrets and more: Discover buzzing Shaanxi

The Muslim Quarter, also called Huimin Jie, is located close to the Bell Tower. This area is renowned for its savoury snacks, fresh noodles and traditional Muslim dishes. The street truly comes alive at night, playing host to an array of unique shops. The enticing smell of rou jia mo, kao rou, roast baked spicy dou fu and fresh baked Muslim bread (tuo tuo mo) are sure to tempt your taste buds. The food and drinks served here are strictly halal so there’s no pork or alcohol.

After the Muslim Quarter, be sure to check out the Yongxingfang Food Street. Located in Shuncheng alley on the north side of the Zhongshan Gate of Xi’an City Wall, it is built in the architectural style of the Ming and Qing dynasties. This street is the perfect place to enjoy various local delicacies, such as the Shaanxi sandwich (rou jia mo), cold noodles (liang pi), dumplings stuffed with hot gravy (guan tang baozi), honey glutinous rice (feng mi zong zi) and many more.
