Xin Jiang BBQ
9260 Bellaire Blvd
Houston, TX 77036
The Chinese character for “skewer” painted prominently on the door of Xin Jiang BBQ gives visitors a hint as to the specialty at this essential Chinatown restaurant. Pronounced "sheen jung", the eatery is named for the area of northwestern China where this particular style of charcoal cooking thrives.
Dining at Xin Jiang would not be complete without indulging in their incredible lamb fat skewers, or the classic beef and lamb skewers, all coated with copious amounts of cumin. Small enough to strike the perfect level of tenderness without being chewy, and cheap enough to order as many as your heart desires, these skewers will keep you coming back for more.
Don’t forget fried rice to go along with your skewer feast, some plain steam
