Kashkar Cafe is widely considered to be one of the best places to eat in Brighton Beach and is known for being one of the few Uyghur restaurants in NYC. When you get there, order a pot of tea and take your time exploring the menu, because there’s a lot to try and you’ll want to try as much as possible. It’s easy to get caught up in the myriad fried, meat-filled appetizers, all of which are good - but the fried manty are the best. Get a pickle plate for some vegetables and then dive into some noodle dishes. Before you know it, you’ll be very full, and very ready to come back.
