Xibo gives Xinjiang cuisine an image overhaul. Order extra bread with the lamb with pumpkin to soak up the stewed goodness.

Xibo is the classiest Xinjiang restaurant in Shanghai. The space could double for a wine bar.

They serve a refined menu food and image, giving Xinjiang cuisine's reputation a much-needed overhaul.

In addition to standard hits like da pan ji, a spicy dish of boneless chicken and potatoes that falls apart in your mouth, this new restaurant serves traditional food of the Xibo minority, a group descended from Manchu archers who migrated to Xinjiang hundreds of years ago.

Don't forget to order the signature braised lamb with stewed pumpkin and steamed pumpkin dumplings.

The terrace is one of Shanghai's better outdoor drinking spots.
