I passed by an noticed this brand new Uyghur restaurant just opened and couldn't resist popping in. It is a family run place with 3 generations - the eldest cooking in the back, the daughter running front of house and her young kids eagerly greeting new customers in front. They all had a very friendly welcoming vibe, and really tried to make you feel welcome at the restaurant. They did a nice job putting up some Uyghur decorating touches too all around the mid-sized restaurant, and were playing regional music as well. Nice!
There is a good variety of Uyghur dishes available, including a display case that has girde nan, stamped Uyghur nan, and various other Uyghur baked goods. But I couldn't resist trying out the laghman when I heard they were made in house. I ordered the anam ning laghman ($9.99 at lunch).
The laghman were very nicely prepared. They had a lovely bounce to them, were cooked perfectly, and soaked up the nicely spiced lamb and vegetable topping. There was a little bit of heat to the dish, but not overpowering.
I look forward to coming back and trying out their girde nan and the polo. Nice to have a Uyghur spot in this area! I wish this very nice family very good luck with their new restaurant!
