Xinjiang Style cuisine in Dallas?

pgwiz1 Dec 4, 2009 06:08 AM

I was reading about Xinjiang cuisine somewhere and it sounds awesome. Anyone know of a place in dallas? It's basically western Chinese cuisine, with a heavy influence from Kazakhstan/Tajikstan/Pakistan. Any thoughts?

    I doubt there is any Xinjiang/Uighur cuisine.

    I know we have Sichuan (Sichuanese, Little Sichuan, Royal Sichuan), Shandong (Chef Hsu), Jiangsu/Shanghainese (Yao Fuzi, Shanghai), Cantonese (Many), and Hunan (Little Hunan? Not sure of the name but it is across the parking lot from Jeng Chi in Richardson) with a bit of Taiwanese (Umeko and First Emperor) style thrown in some places. We have 5 of the 8 culinary traditions which is a good respresentation.

    Most of the culinary traditions are the large or coastal provinces in the East. There is very few people in the west because of the arid terrain. It would be nice to have a restaurant though just I don't believe we have that many immigrants from that area, if any at all.
