With so many restaurants in such a compact area, it can be hard for new places in Chinatown to distinguish themselves, but the places that manage to break free are pretty special. The latest of these is Uyghur Bistro, which serves cuisine from the Xinjiang provance in northwestern China that incorporates Chinese, Indian, and even Middle Eastern influences. Lamb is the protein of choice here, and the Halal restaurant serves it a variety of ways.

The best bang for the buck are skewers, which provide a hefty portion for only $5. A braised lamb shank fairly fell apart with a fork, and the signature hand pulled noodles provided a nice chew to complement the stir-fried lamb in another dish.
