Xi’an Tong Sheng Xiang Restaurant

Tong Sheng Xiang (Prosperity and Fortune) Beef and Lamb Paomo Restaurant done in Tang Dynasty style, is a time-honored cuisine in the Xian Bell and Drum Tower Square. Yang Rou Pao Mo is a soup dish that involves breaking wheat flour flat bread into a bowl and adding a mutton stock.

Tongshengxiang is known for its Niuyangroupaomo, which is a steamed bun soaked in beef or mutton soup. It is a delicious Xi'an specialty that consists of a beef or mutton soup served with wheat flour flat bread. The hard bread is broken and added to the soup. The mixture is then eaten with pickled garlic cloves.

It has become a popular dish for entertaining foreign state leaders. In 1983, the dish was moved from the restaurant to the national banquet.  In 1993, a Chinese traditional painting master, Huang Zhou, wrote an inscription describing the taste. Due to this description the dish gained notoriety. If you go there to taste it, you don’t need to ask for too much because a small amount is filling.

Don't worry about ordering in this Muslim restaurant as you can simply point to a picture on the wall or look over the counter in front of the open kitchen. The most popular dish here is Yang Rou Pao Mo, a delicious lamb soup that you break small pieces of bread into. If you feel like having something special, head upstairs for the pricier selection including a whole roasted lamb that can cost upwards of 700 RMB.
