LAMB, LAMB, and more LAMB (and some beef! LOL)
Old Mandarin Islamic is a family-run and Northern Chinese restaurant that’s been open since 1997. Due to the Northern Chinese/Beijing-style of the cuisine here, lamb figures prominently, along with a very aromatic cumin, which the restaurant imports from China. Specialties include the cumin-smothered Mandarin lamb, delicious beef or onion pancakes, & cucumber bean curd (reported to be the best tofu dish we'll ever eat). No pork here!
Family style is recommended so we can try more dishes.
