Are you making a specialty food?

Are there Xinjiangese restaurants in NYC?

I tried Xinjiangese food for the first time when I was in Shanghai last year and loved it. Are there any Xinjianese places in Queens (or other boroughs)? A Fan Ti in Flushing looks promising, but I read a thread that it's actually Chinese-influenced Korean dishes?

    A Fan Ti no longer has what you're looking for, unfortunately. It's either Korean-Chinese or Chinese-Korean, but definately not XinJiang.

        IMHO, the cart food is the best... unless you consider cumin-spiced crispy lamb, which is most excellent at Xiao La Jiao

        Fu Run in Flushing? Not quite sure what they serve now from the days that they were Waterfront International Restaurant.

          Fu Run will make most of the dishes that were on the Waterfront Intl. menu. The paper menu I have has no English title so I am not sure if it is the Fu Run menu or the WI menu..but there are dishes on it that are not on the in-house main menu. But when I asked them to make these for me, they have usually done so.

            Yeah, when I was there last year they still were displaying Waterfront International business cards and take out menus.
