Village Voice's Description

Sim-Sim is one of New York's rare Azerbaijani cafes, and just in case you've forgotten, Azerbaijan is an oil-rich former-Soviet republic in the Caucasus Mountains, a region sandwiched between Georgia and Iran. There are excellent charcoal-grilled kebabs, of course, of which our favorite is the ground-lamb lulya kebab, but also direct your attention to meal-size soups like dushbara, which immerses meat-stuffed dumplings in a mint-laced broth. The chicken tabaka ("road kill chicken") is available in a deluxe edition featuring a yogurt-garlic dipping sauce, and you can also score the legendary "jiz biz," a stir fry of French fries and random lamb organs, a favorite of the Organ Meat Society. Finally, find a novel slaw of green radish and shredded lamb tongue. Ouch!

    The best soup this year was Caucasian - meaning it originated in the Caucasus Mountains. Dushanabe is a mint-flecked broth rife with wrinkled dumplings. At Cafe Sim-Sim, it comes with a tiny pitcher of crushed garlic in vinegar - pour it in and swoon.

    Come here with an open mind and enjoy the extraordinary food. Be adventurous and try the Veal Tongue, Sheep Balls, Sturgeon Shish Kebab or the Gizzards.
