Droooolll ...

Along with being on of my favourite cities, Kashgar has so far catered the best food in the country as well.

I've never been a big meat eater as most of you know but here, I can't get enough of these mutton kebabs! They are SOOOO GOOOD! I'm drooling just thinking of them. Kebabs come in BBQ and oven baked varieties. We both like the BBQed ones more ... much jucier.

We've also tried various common dishes as recommended by LP such as nan (breads), girde nan (bagels), samsas (baked mutton dumplings), gang pan (rice with vegetables and meat), laghman (cold spicy noodles), souman (noodles fried with tomatoes, peppers, garlic and meat),

polo (rice pilaf),

tohu gangpan (rice with spicy chicken and vegetables).

Desserts include maroji (vanilla ice cream churned in iced wooden barrels),

kharsen meghriz (fried dough balls filled with sugar, raisins and walnuts), and dogh (shaved ice, syrup, yoghurt, and iced water).

Something neither of us have ventured out to try yet, opke (broth of bobbing goat's heads and coiled, stuffed intestines).

Not sure what this was either but we didn't feel like trying it :P.
