    Upon arrival at Xinjiang Taste Restaurant, sample 3-5 different types of kabobs accompanied by side dishes like eggplant, garlic, leeks, and beans. Then, try tanjianbing, a savory fried pancake popular among locals. Topped off with a sampling or Erguoto – a traditional Chinese white liquor.
    Continue walking down the same street to taste a number of other sweet and savoroy specialties, including sesame cakes, Sichuan kabobs, peanut milk, cold noodles, steamed rice cake, and more. Throughout the tour, learn about each dish’s ingredients and cultural significance from your guide.
