A much-loved city in Uzbekistan located on the Silk Road, the name “Samarkand” is branded on a handful of restaurants in this area. With a mural of the Silk Road painted on the walls and traditional Uzbek costumes to try on, the restaurant does its best to capture its home city in both its décor and food. One of the dishes to try here is the meat pie, samsa. Order as an appetizer and bite into its hard crust to discover the well-seasoned, tender meat on the inside. For the main dishes, save room for the golubtsi—a hearty, meat-stuffed cabbage roll that comes served with a side of vegetables. A variety of dishes labeled “anju,” similar to ones you might find in Korean pochas, are served as well, so if you’re adding a bit of alcohol to your dinner, you may want to get the Russian-style fruit bowl to go with it.
