# 84 The first time I came across this type of cuisine, I thought it would be similar to Chinese cuisine. But as I read over the menu, it’s more of a fusion between Middle-Eastern and Asian culinary. The main dish seems to include a variety of rice, noodles, and kebabs. I think noodle is a Chinese influence on Uyghur cuisine, but the way their noodle dish was prepared seem to be different than noodles from any other type of cuisine. Their handmade noodles are boiled until very soft and topped with stir-fried meat and vegetables in meat stock. The picture shows the traditional Uyghur braised rice cooked with carrots and onions. It is served with lamb kebabs on skewers and side salad. The meat is seasoned beautifully; it’s very juicy, tender, and succulent... Have you had or heard of this type of cuisine before?

I know that Uyghurs are a Turkic ethnic group who live in East and Central Asia. I suppose that they mixed the Turkish cuisine with the Asian cuisine. I never tried their cuisine, but I suppose they cook mutton, beef, chicken, goose, no pork and they use many vegetables and fruits.

I don't think I've had or heard of Uyghur cuisine before! I just quickly read that there is are small population of these people living in Washington DC and in Los Angeles (so there's gotta be a restaurant that has this stuff out here). Interesting about the fusion . . . I love food from both cultures - so I'm sure I'd love it!
I think I know what you're talking about... Slices of lettuce, tomatoes, and onions can also be added... Or we can order the 'lot' which usually means everything plus shredded cheese and fried egg... We can find that in every Turkish restaurants down here...
