    The bright orange awning says Eddie, but the menu says Elza. In gender nonconforming NYC, it seems right that Your Mother-in-Law is sometimes called Eddie and sometimes Elza. Not a full blown fusion cuisine, Korean-Uzbek cuisine still defies expectations by spanning the Asian-European spectrum. The fusion is subtle or DIY. Top the excellent chewy and crusty tandyr bread with chim-cha, a dill enhanced kimchi. Guksu is translated into kuksu, a cold sweet and sour broth with somen noodles, pickles and beef topped with boundary crossing dill. Julienne carrots also make repeat appearances, as the star in the refreshing and vibrant Korean carrot salad and cameos in the chim-cha and other banchan-like dishes, such as the spicy tripe "hye". The coriander seeded carrot salad isn't Korean, but is the Korean-Uzbek gift to Eastern European cuisine. Stalin helped to prove what the family of immigrants know - the longing for one's ancestral food can survive longer than language and culture.

      Thank you for sharing these articles. I boned up a little bit on Koryo-Saram history ad culture. Knowing the background will make our meal even more enjoyable. Few people know about it, and few can access it.

      Public transportation information is included in every announcement. For this dinner, the best option is the Q to Brighton Beach.

    Sally: these emails arriving under Central Park Sketching label, not Global Dining. Strange.

    If I meet a single Uzbek-Korean woman, this would be perfect.
