We are chatting with Ali Azimov of Lagman House about his family’s restaurant, and introducing our listeners to Dungan cuisine. As Ligaya Mishan pointed out in The New York Times, “Lagman House is likely the first and only restaurant in the city to offer the food of the Dungans, Chinese Muslims descended from seventh-century Arab and Persian Silk Road traders who married Han Chinese.” Doron Wong of River and Hills Hospitality Group will also join us to share his experiences cooking and eating in Kazakhstan.
