Kiroran, new Uyghur in Fairfax

At least the fourth new Uyghur place to open up in the area. I didn't test much, and I ordered atypically. I got the stewed lamb over noodles, which was a humungous bowl of shaved noodles in a week broth with some lamb on top. Some of the lamb was nice and lamb-y tasting and some was rubbery 'parts'. They warned me it was very plain, but I decided to depart from the standard orders.

The good news is that I also orderd the bbq buns. Though not named this on the menu, they are normally called samsa. Although the filling was bland, this was the first Uyghur place in town that baked the bread fresh and is serious about their bread. A good sign, and I'll be back to try some of their Uyghur staples. If you live near there, go and let me know how they do with the laghman noodles and other breads.
