Xibei is a famous brand serving authentic northwestern Chinese cuisine. Now, it has opened its first branch in Hangzhou. The dishes of Xibei are made mainly from meat and grains. The eatery also adheres to the original cooking method of traditional northwestern cuisine, without any monosodium glutamate.
The must orders include youmian (莜面), yellow steamed buns, roasted lamb chops and sea buckthorn (沙棘果) juice. Youmian is a kind of noodles commonly seen in northwestern China. It is made of hulless oat, a cereal variety popularly grown in that area. Chefs cook them with shredded mushrooms, tomatoes and mutton soup, and they taste smooth and fragrant.
The red meat offered in Xibei is transported from the prairies of northwest China. Every lamb chop and beef rib is braised for two to three hours, and then roasted with secret recipes. The sea buckthorn juice is a beverage uncommon on the menus of restaurants. It is squeezed from sea buckthorn, a shrub widespread in semi-desert locations. As they are tolerant to salt, Chinese government grows them in deserts to conserve water and soil. Sea buckthorn juice is abundant in vitamin C, with a sweet and slightly sour taste.
