I've kind of posted on this topic before, but I don't care.
Xinjiang/Uyghur food is some of the most delicious stuff on planet Earth.
Unfortunately, because of its remoteness, the Iron Curtain, and now tremendous restrictions on travel and immigration by the CCP/Chinese govt,,, its really hard to find good recipes or demonstration videos online, let alone actual food in the U.S.
However, someone established a Wikibook for it..... and now it waits for someone to write in it
Do you know ANY Uyghur/Xinjiang cooks? D.C. has the largest Uyghur expat population in the U.S. outside of China. Still, we've never had a representation of them in the areas dining scene.. BLOWS. We dragged five guys half way around the globe and wrongly imprisoned them in Cuda for four years. They planned to open a restaurant in their next home, and we STILL bungled that! You have to go to the Caribbean to taste what could have been in our back yard! Guh! Your next best bet, is a small shop serving nostalgic Russian expats in Queens NYC.
It's like were living in the days before dial-up Internet, forced to languish.. our desires for gratification unfulfilled.
So, please pass this along and see if we can get some real information in there (or at least, second me on how ridiculously good the food is.)
