This was my lunch a few days ago when I was out and about. I stopped into a Xinjiang lunch spot and enjoyed my dish of some peppers and a bit of spicy beef over rice. The soup is complimentary. Xinjiang is the northwestern-most province in China: a gigantic, underdeveloped and wild but beautiful part of the world. There are numerous non-Chinese local languages spoken there, predominantly Uighur but many others as well. Also the native people from this region are caucasians. This region borders on Tibet and the Stans as well as other far western areas of China. Kashgar on the Silk Road is a major city in Xinjiang; the capital is Urumqi.
