Altun Jam

Uyghur in Kashgar

This popular Uyghur restaurant may well be a little far out, but its striking appearance and good food make it well worth a trip. The ornate bar is quite a sight to behold, and the people-watching is superb with some seriously well-attired locals. Try the gān biàn dòu jiǎo (dry fried green beans) and the roù bǐng (fluffy lamb pie).
