Xinjiang Restaurant on Yushanbeilu, just next to Fantajie  Empty
PostSubject: Xinjiang Restaurant on Yushanbeilu, just next to Fantajie    Xinjiang Restaurant on Yushanbeilu, just next to Fantajie  EmptyTue Oct 11, 2011 3:41 pm

Yesterday had dinner at that place. The restaurant was full of empty, only a group of Uygurs, apparently apparently affiliated with the owner, hung out there. My party did not like lamb, however, since this is the specialty to eat in a Xinjiang restaurant, my judgement of the food may not be adequate.

We ordered across the menu, chicken and beef dishes, veggies and xinjiang noodles. Overall, food quality was OK, service very fast, friendly and the bill was very moderate.

However, when you go to the (rather clean, both thumbs up) toilet, you pass by the kitchen. In my 23 years in Asia I have seen a lot of filthy kitchens, and this was another one of those. Given that the restaurant was basically empty, the conditions in the kitchen were shocking. It appeared that no cleaning, even picking up of fallen food or garbage, nor any other activity even remotely related to cleaning to had taken place in the recent history of this kitchen.

Unsurprisingly, the apparent owner of the restaurant spent the entire evening catching flies.

Your friend and humble narrator shall not return to that place.

I found 2 more Xinjiang restaurants on Liyanggang and will test one of them this weekend. I shall report here.
