I've had a couple of really good lunches here at this new Bukharian (Kosher cuisine from Uzbekistan) restaurant. There are so many great "must try" dishes you need to bring a crowd. Last visit we ordered:

Lagman Soup - loaded with meat, veggies and noodles in a flavorful broth
Chuchvara - Tiny pan-fried meat dumplings with onions and a tomato sauce on the side
Belyash - Fried Meat Pie
Bojon - Roasted Eggplant
Fatir - Onion Bread
Manti - Meat Dumplings
Tabaka w/ Garlic Fries - Grilled Cornish Game Hen
Uzbek Plov - Beef, Rice, Chick Peas & Carrots

On a previous visit we tried the Spicy Carrot Salad, Lamb Kebabs and the Chenar Salad with Beef Tongue. There is so much on this menu to love!

Mmmm I have been having dreams about the chuchvara. I was not expecting them to be my favorite of the lunch but I just kept eating them and eating them and eating them and then the second Manti came out.
