Hearty Dishes and Lunchtime Crowds Abound at Xinjiang Meatball Soup, Chaowai Soho | the Beijinger

Hearty Dishes and Lunchtime Crowds Abound at Xinjiang Meatball Soup, Chaowai Soho | the Beijinger: It’s hard to imagine a place that deals in the heavier, meatier elements of Xinjiang dining would be busy during lunchtime, especially one tucked away deep in the labyrinthine Chaowai Soho. Don’t get us wrong, we love to feast on dapanji from time to time with friends and family, but with colleagues at lunchtime near the office? Pushing it. In our minds, it's a wee-hour, beer and baijiu kind of meal.
