Tengri Tagh is just about the only restaurant in Midtown right now that fits into the Venn diagram of somewhere that’s new, exciting, and affordable. Pair their Uyghur noodle dishes - like the stir-fried noodle with thinly sliced lamb and sauteed peppers or the pearl noodle made up of chunky kernels of chopped noodles and more sauteed peppers - with one of their baked buns or lamb and cumin buns, and you’ll have a filling meal for under $20. And since they’re open from 11am to 8pm, people who work in Midtown should start memorizing Tengri Tagh’s menu. This is a lunch spot that stands out in a sea full of surrounding chain restaurants and forgettable delis.
