Caravan Uyghur Cuisine
Samsa is a puffed dough pastry filled with minced onions and beef or lamb, and it’s our favorite thing on the menu at Caravan Uyghur Cuisine in FiDi. Specifically, the lamb samsa, which is the size of a baseball and filled heavily with sauteed onions and ground lamb meat. The other highlight here is the dumpling soup, which although it’s clear in color, is well-seasoned with various spices and aromatics like cumin and dill, bringing out the flavor of the meat dumplings. And if you like cumin as much as we do, you’ll love their laghman noodles. Topped with sesame seeds and sauteed with stalks of scallions, sliced onions, and tomato, this cumin-heavy dish is delicious and always leaves a tingling sensation in our mouths that we like.
