Details:

When you walk into Jiang Diner in the East Village, the first thing you'll notice is a whiff of cumin. Lamb, beef and chicken all get a dose of it. The restaurant which is serving foods from China's Xinjiang Province has a laid back vibe with wooden bench seating, exposed brick and wood plank floors. It's also crowded with twenty-somethings slurping up noodle dishes. Appetizers include hot and sour cucumber, and steamed eggplant with fresh garlic sauce. Steamed shumai, which resemble little pouches, are filled with beef or lamb. Signature dishes include stewed or fried lamb ribs, hand-pulled noodles with choice of protein and rice cakes with pickled vegetables. One drawback is the time it takes to place an order to the arrival of the food. Expect about a 40 minute wait.
