"Baikui" was originally the surname of the proprietor whose restaurant is becoming famous in Beijing for the unique flavor of its roast mutton. It stands side by side with Dong Lai Shun, Kao Rou Ji, and Yue Sheng Zhai as one of Beijing's famous "Top Four Delicious Mutton Restaurants".
Roast mutton from "Baikui" has become famous for having a "distinct Beiiing flavor", chiefly because "Baikui" is very particular about their ingredients and their cooking methods. There are very strict standards for meat used here. The animals chosen are top quality black-faced, white-bodied sheep from Inner Mongolia, between three and six years old, and weighing 30 to 40 kilos. Their mutton is meaty and tender, with no gamy odor. During preparation, the sheep are processed and arranged, and the meat is mixed with over 20 different seasonings, then it undergoes seven to eight different processes before being finished. It is crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, with a glossy reddish glow, and not too oily; the meat is simply delicious. You can also treat yourself to genuine mung bean milk, fried dough rings and assorted stews, in addition to a large variety of roasted kebabs—this is a completely authentic snack restaurant. Besides the roast mutton, "Baikui" is also known for their unparalleled skill in creating the "Nest of Threads", a type of noodles made by hand—pulling dough. Cool, smooth, and sinewy, it is definitely worth trying.
