This food stall inside the New World Mall food court in Flushing serves pretty much every Uyghur staple - from rice and noodles to samsas. But the one thing you have to get here is the kebabs, which come wrapped inside aluminum foil. The aluminum foil acts almost like a little sleeping bag, keeping all the juices, cumin, and chili flakes packed in with the meaty kebabs. Make sure to try their lamb soup too - it comes with a small lamb shank and a broth full of carrots and spinach, topped with lots of cilantro.
