Jostle your way through the crowd while enjoying the pungent aromas at Muslim market, a street packed with shops and food stalls. Paved with dark blue-grey flagstone, the 500 m (1,640 ft) long street offers local must-try specialties such as roujiamo (spicy marinated beef) and yangrou paomo (Uyghur pita bread soaked in thick lamb soup). Extending north from a landmark tower, the street marks the gastronomical hub for the area, its market serving the 20,000-plus Muslim community here. Watch craftsmen make ornamented bread or candy, which you can take as a souvenir.
