For naan bread encrusted with spices, and spicy tofu – there’s the Muslim Bahali Xinjiang Restaurant. This combination (see featured image) costs 23 RMB and comes with a full pot of tea (more if you want). It’s more than I can eat in one go – so it’s a doggie-bag to have the rest for lunch or dinner next day.  They make the breads in a huge oven out on the street.

Lots of other things on offer – the braised eggplant is another favourite. A lot of their dishes are shown in a photographic menu, along with English description, but the basic menu is all in Chinese.
