Halal Food in China

Halal food has a long history in China. The arrival of Arabian and Persian merchants during the Tang and Song dynasty seen the introduction of the Muslim diet. Chinese Muslim cuisine adheres strictly to the Islamic dietary rules with mutton and lamb being the predominant ingredient. The advantage of Muslim cuisine in China is that it has inherited the diverse cooking methods of Chinese cuisine for example, braising, roasting, steaming, stewing and many more. Due to China's multicultural background Muslim cuisine retains its own style and characteristics according to regions. In Beijing there is the well renowned Donglaishun hot pot, Yueshengzhai's spiced beef and mutton is also a must try along with famous snacks such as Tasimi. Lanzhou's Beef Lamian (hand pulled noodles), Xinjiang's lamb kebab and Xi'an's Yangroupaomo are just some of the representative Muslim dishes in China.
