Lots of good things are popping up in Rockaway, including Uma’s, serving up dishes from Uzbekistan.
What to order from Uma’s for 3 (to share!):
- Manti with Meat (dumplings stuffed with a combination of lamb and beef and a delicious yogurt sauce)
- Plov (traditional dish of Uzbekistan – rice, lamb, carrots, onions)
- Chicken shish kebabs served with side of tomato sauce with a kick
It has been really crowded for dinner on Saturday nights (45 min-1 hour wait), so we went for lunch on a Sunday after sitting in the sun for a few hours. We will definitely be back there to try a few more things, including the Manti dumplings with butternut squash.
