Chinese Islamic cuisine

There is a large Muslim population in China. Many Chinese restaurants cater to the special needs of the muslim. A Chinese Islamic restaurant (清真菜館) is very similar to a Mandarin restaurant with the exception that there is no pork in the menu.

Another difference is that lamb and mutton are more available than in other Chinese restaurants.

In the US, Chinese Islamic restaurants are frequented by non-Chinese as well. Pakistanis and Arabics are among the regular clientele.
