uighur xinjiang lamb kebabs
I've been hunting for some good chinese uighur kebabs and stumbled on a rec for Chez Dong on this site: http://notor.me/my-top-10-chinese-res...
Has anyone tried chez dong? Are there other chinese restaurants in paris that you know of that serve xinjiang food?
Thanks for your help!
OMG I'VE BEEN CRAVING THIS SINCE I WAS 600 DAYS OLD!!!! Now that I only have 2 days left in my apartment in the heart of the 13th, I must go get some! wow can't believe I'm so lucky, I would've left yesterday if my flight hadn't been cancelled and I would've never ventured back out here just for kebabs.
I got it!! didn't take a v. close look at the menu, but with my quick glance, I didn't see any other Xinjiang dishes.
Kabobs were overall pretty good with quite a bit of meat (as opposed to the mostly fat with meat inserts that you find on the streets in China) I only have a few gripes:
1. v. minor annoyance: there wasn't enough cumin, I like it to be encrusted in cumin seeds, so I added some myself.
2. instead of dry chilli peppers, it was a chilli sauce (like chunky rooster sauce), this bothered me quite a bit because I didn't like the flavors of the sauce interfering, I'm used to dry heat.
3. this was a major annoyance for me: it wasn't fire grilled, so I grilled it a bit over my little propane burner.
I have not been, but my Chinese friends like it.
Last Sunday saw some Turkic Chinese on rue Fbg St Denis. (How do I know? I don't. The young men looked more Turkish than Chinese, but spoke Mandarin.) I nearly cornered them to ask them for a recommendation on kebabs.
Btw, I love the notor blog, thank you ! Love the take on GFC.
