Spicy Uyghur Noodle Soup and Lamb Kebabs from Uyghur Bistro in Chinatown.
This place, and Uyghur cuisine, is the perfect mix of something familiar and something new. Similar to Sichuan with some Middle Eastern influence as well. The Noodle Soup [With homemade noodles] was phenomenal, a really unique and spicy broth, with perfectly tender Beef, and the Kebab was melt in your mouth good. They use a lot of Cumin in the dishes, which is one of my favorite spices to use when cooking. Place is also Halal.
One of the "Best of" for Chinese in Houston, and a must try if you're the exploratory type!
