Silk Road Choyhona Restaurant Review

: One of the least expected but quite popular restaurants in the metro area is this Uzbek establishment. Its menu may seem unfamiliar to most Westerners who don’t typically sample Central Asian fare, which in this case is definitely more Russian than Chinese. The appetizer samplings range from beef tongue with horseradish to pickled herring with potatoes. Also available are borscht and shurpa, a traditional Uzbek soup of lamb and vegetables, and main-dish meats (plov, narin or chicken tabaka) and manti (dumplings). Perhaps the most recognizable and identifiable dish is the Silk Road salad of sliced beef, green onions, fried eggs and a mayo dressing. And, of course, the kebabs, from the chicken to lamb and ground beef. Desserts include baklava and jam. Note: Service tends to be slow. Beverages include soft drinks, Turkish coffee, and teas, plus other options.
