Kubuqi Desert in Inner Mongolia
Inner Mongolia has become a touristy place so much of the local cuisine has been adapted to the pan-Chinese palate. For example, the spicy cabbage stir-fry is a Northeast Chinese dish, popular in Liaoning, Jilin, and Heilongjiang provinces. You will always find this dish at a Northeast Chinese banquet. Most of the dishes we had at the Kubuqi desert were not truly Inner Mongolian. If you don't have mutton on the table, then it ain't Inner Mongolian.
