Hi all

Are there any Xinjiang/Uyghur restaurants near Boston (within 1 hour drive)?

    Thanks all! Guess I'll just have to take a trip to NYC one of these days. :)

      No, I don't believe that there are. You'll find dishes like Cumin Lamb at Golden Garden in Belmont, and at Zoe's and Wang's in Somerville. Since Beijing Star closed, you can't get yang rou pao mo in the Boston area (yes, that's more of a Xi'an dish, but those kinds of lamb stews are not uncommon further West in China too). The excellent bread at the Helmand or the excellent da bing at Formosa Taipei in Lexington has reminded me of breads from Kashgar.

      Beijing Star Restaurant
      835 Main St, Waltham, MA 02451

      Formosa Taipei
      315 Marrett Rd, Lexington, MA 02421

      Golden Garden
      63 Concord Ave, Belmont, MA 02478

        The closest one is probably in Brooklyn's Brighton Beach. I ate there last year.
