Crescent Moon Muslim Restaurant
You can find a Chinese Muslim restaurant on almost every street in Běijīng. Most are run by Huí Muslims, who are Han Chinese, rather than ethnic-minority Uyghurs from the remote western province of Xīnjiāng. Crescent Moon is the real deal – owned and staffed by Uyghurs, it attracts many Běijīng-based Uyghurs and people from Central Asia, as well as a lot of Western expats.
