Munire Omar in the kitchen at Omars Xinjiang Restaurant
Need a visual aid for your print edition? Jonathan Gold visits Omar's Xinjiang Halal Restaurant. ("Omar's has a large menu, with all manners of food prepared in many different ways. You will not be tasting most of it -- as in Xinjiang itself, I suspect, most of the food is only theoretically available, and you will be pointed instead to the half-dozen Uyghur dishes, which are pretty much what you want to be eating here anyway.")
