Uighur Cuisine ~ Chinese - Chinatown


With our obsession for discovering new places to eat, we sometimes find it hard to fit in old favourites, but we're always glad when we do. Case in point is Uighur Cuisine in Chinatown.




We can't believe we havent been here for so long, the food is so good, and so easy on the wallet.

We choose a mix of dishes - first up is sogah kaposa - white vinegar cabbage salad - $8. Mildly vinegary and sweet and very refreshing.



Suryru Iaman - Uyghur hand made noodles with fine meat and vegetables - $12. The photo doesn't do it justice, this is delicious.



Kuda tuhum kormisi - stir fried leek with egg - $12. Our friend Jane very wisely chooses this one, the leeks and scrambled style eggs work well together.



Kawap - lamb skewars - 5 for $12. This is the dish we came for - grilled skewers of marinated lamb. These were cooked medium and were quite juicy. Other places we have tried go more towards well done, we like it both ways.

  1. I love this place. I went there for my friends birthday and got the whole lamb. It fed 28 of us and there was still 8 takeaway containers of meat left. The stir friend eggplant is my favourite there.
