Karamay Uyghur is hidden among shiny offices and grab-and-go lunch spots in the City. Its original branch in Leicester claims to be the first Uyghur restaurant in the UK. Whether or not that’s true, we can’t verify, but its food certainly stands up in the fiery, flavour rankings. Given its location, the space feels a little slick—its big windows look out on to more ancient bodies of the City as suits search for sustenance, and the unapologetically green chilli-filled Chinese murger comes on a chopping board. But the handmade noodles have just the right amount of bounce and given the big round tables and light-filled room, we can think of few better places for a big Friday lunch around Fenchurch Street.
