Eden Silk Road Cuisine
39144 Paseo Padre Parkway
Fremont, CA 94538
Why did we dine here? – Eden Silk Road Cuisine is a new Chinese Uyghur Halal Style restaurant in Fremont. There are very few restaurants serving authentic Uyghur food from the Xinjiang region of China, unfortunately best known for ethnic violence. Uyghur Taamliri in San Francisco is located in a bar. This restaurant is part of a large catering firm from China. Interesting decor that is clearly from China. They promise to open more Uyghur resturants in the US soon.
Insider Tip – Come if you are interested in regional Chinese food.

Eden Silk Road Cuisine Signature Dishes – Leghman, Lamb, Chicken Kordak
Eden Silk Road Cuisine’s Menu is wide ranging, but we avoided all the non Uyghur dishes. This is important to follow.
Eden Silk Road Cuisine Food Picks:
Note we had a large party, so we received larger orders of many of these dishes.
Gosnaan ($8.95 for lamb) are little bite sized appetizer pastries with a bit of meat inside.
Lengpung – Cold green bean noodles ($5.95) a variation of the Beijing style dish with cold ‘jello’. Somewhat spicy.
Leghmen ($10.95) Uyghur noodles w/lamb, onion, peppers is a signature dish and clearly showed off the hand pulled noodles.
Chicken Kordak – Da pen gee ($28.95 for large) – Nice flavorful pieces of chicken with bell peppers, and large wide noodles. A must get.
We had this dish in Xian, China. They took it to another level there.
Lamb leg with polo ($11.95) – A traditional Uyghur rice pilaf dish with raisins sprinkled on the rice, mixed beans, and a huge piece of lamb leg that was both juicy and succulent.
Lamb shish kebab ($9.95) was a popular dish. Good quality lamb, cooked just right on a sharp skewer. A Must order. Compare this to Shalizaar’s Lamb
Naan wrapper Lamb ($38.95 for large) was less impressive as the other lamb dishes, but still ok. The naan got pretty moist and mushy.
Xin Jiay milk tea has a sweet – salty flavor. Interesting, not exactly like T-Pumps.
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Oven roasted double whole rack of lamb ($79.95) Order the other lamb dishes instead. This one was a bit dry.
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
