Chinese Lamb Dishes Menu


Lamb or mutton is a less common meat in China, and is only commonly used where there are large areas of pasture, such as in Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang. However, expensive restaurants and Muslim restaurants in larger cities throughout China now can offer sheep meat on the menu, because of China's well-developed infrastructure.

Lamb skewers are a tasty and widely available item on side street barbeques.

See Chinese Common Dishes for other meat dishes and vegetarian dishes.
