Xinjiang Meat on a Stick on Hubei Lu
About this place
"Rou chuan", or "meat on a stick" for those that have spent less than a week in China, is surely one of the most popular street snacks in China. Migrants from Xinjiang province serve this quick meaty treat in cities across the country.
The best rou chuan to be found on the streets of Nanjing is at one of those places that is locally famous yet remains unknown to travellers. It is called 正宗新疆艾斯卡烧烤 (Zhengzong Xinjiang aisika shaokao). This tiny hole-in-the-wall establishment has no English name and is located on Hubei Lu, right next to Hunan Road and Lion’s Bridge. These kebabs are definitely worth a trip if you are in the Hunan Lu area.
What makes this rou chuan better than the rest is that you get more meat, less grizzle and grease, and it’s quite spicy too.
One rou chuan (one stick) costs 1 yuan, which is actually 2 or 3 times the price of the average rou chuan in Nanjing.

Follow instructions to get to Lion’s Bridge (狮子桥). This section of Hubei Road (湖北路) stretches between the south entrance to Lion’s Bridge and Hunan Road (湖南路).
