Café Kashkar

1141 Brighton Beach Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11235
Brighton Beach


Uighur food—a Central Asian mélange of Kazakh, Russian, Chinese, Uzbek and Turkish cooking—is, unsurprisingly, a little difficult to come by in the US, even in the culinary United Nations that is Brooklyn. Luckily, Cafe Kashkar is around to satisfy your cravings for this cuisine's onion-, garlic-, cumin-, pepper- and lamb-heavy dishes. Diners praise the spot's dumplings, "lagman" noodle platter, lamb and chicken kebabs, and other tangy, authentic dishes.
