Ever wonder what folks eat in Uzbekistan? Well, then, Samarkand is your place. Run by two Uzbek expats, Samarkand serves killer kebabs, everything from lamb chops and chicken to captain fish (sea bass) and salmon. In addition to the skewers, you can order from a list of salads - including carrot salad, mushroom salad - and funchoza, made with Chinese rice noodles. For dessert, there's hot tea made with a mixture of black and green tea leaves, and sweet cakes of ground walnuts. Yum. All hearty, delicious, and very cheap.
