Yueshengzhai was founded in the forty years of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1775 AD). It has a history of 233 years. It is an old Chinese brand dealing with Muslim meat. Its founder is Ma Qingrui, a Hui nationality in the Qing Dynasty. The secret recipe of Yueshengzhai is the coagulation of the wisdom of several generations of imperial doctors. By drawing on the traditional Chinese medicine theory of "medicine and food are the same origin", it combines cooking skills with diet therapy and food maintenance, forming the unique characteristics of meat, soy sauce, medicine and oil fragrance. When Yuesheng Zhai was cooking, once the pot was uncovered, the fragrance was overflowing and the fragrance was ten miles long. Officials and people rushed to buy it. Zhu Yixin, a scholar in the late Qing Dynasty, wrote about "Yueshengzhai" in his Zhi Manuscript of Jingcheng Fang Lane: "Mutton restaurant with household registration is famous all over the world with spiced mutton sauce." However, Yueshengzhai has never been crudely manufactured because of the popularity of things. Instead, it clearly stipulates that only seven or eighty kilograms of food should be made every day, and no more should be done until it is sold out. This is because the production technology of Yuesheng Zhai is very rigorous, preferring quality to quantity. Qian Anming believes that Yueshengzhai can flourish for a hundred years and never fade, which is closely related to its business philosophy of "to be pure, to be sincere and to be sincere" since its inception.
