One of Shanghai's oldest halal mutton hotpot restaurants. Hong Chang Xing was established in 1891, offering mutton and beef hotpot, also plenty of hot dishes. Good for proper dinner or a quick meal. Upstairs are private rooms, often hosting family events like weddings or birthday party, with a minimum spend around 1000rmb. The restaurant also has a pastry house, deli, and take away snacks. Hong Chang Xing tends to get really busy around 12pm and 6pm, and there's always a line in front of their niurou jianbao (牛肉煎包, pan-fried beef buns) window.
