Cheburechnaya, Rego Park, Queens, New York

92-09 63rd Drive, Rego Park
This Queens restaurant specializes in Bukharan Jewish cuisine from Uzbekistan.  Before the collapse of the USSR, there were 45,000 Bukharan Jews in Central Asia.  Uzbeki xenophobia led to massive emigration.  Walking the streets of Rego Park, you see blond hair and hear Russian language as well as Hebrew.  The samcy, savory flaky pastries filled with lamb and ribs are like nothing you've seen before !
