Village Voice's Description
Named after a lush desert oasis in Xinjiang, China, Kashkar is the city's first Uighur restaurant. Soups are meal sized, including chuchuara-filled with buttery mutton dumplings-and mampa, a stout beef broth rife with irregular homemade pasta. Lamb is king, kebab-wise, with charcoal grilled ribs, tender chunks of shish kebab, and full chops all being offered. Also excellent is goiro lagman, a dead ringer for Chinese carryout lo mein, only the noodles are homemade.
Tips from foursquare
One of New York's only Uyghur restaurants. Lamb on skewers, lamb in dumplings, lamb in hand-pulled noodle soup, and other recommendable non-lamb things.
Try some lamb dumplings. What's that, you don't want lamb? Well how about some lamb skewers. No? Perhaps a lamb pot pie? A lamb-stuffed roll? Lamb soup? Lamb with noodles? Lamb lamb lamb.
Look past the shabby décor and dive into a delicious assortment of Kababs, the lamb was succulent. Try the Laghman noodles and the Carrot Salad. BYOB.
the best Uzbek cafe ever! must try manty and samsa!!!
The lamb ribs and salads are amazing.
