Dungan Cuisine at Lagman House – Cuisine Without a Country
Lagman House is New York’s first restaurant to feature Dungan cuisine. “Dungan” refers not to a geographical region but rather a Muslim ethnic group that settled in western China near “the Stans” bordering Russia. The language is an offshoot of Mandarin Chinese and is spelled in Cyrillic; if you can speak “menu Chinese” and read a little Russian, you’ve got it knocked, but rest assured that English is spoken in the restaurant as well. The cuisine reflects their geographical location with elements of Kazak, Kyrgyz, Uzbek, and Xinjiang Chinese all playing well with each other; we’ll be exploring a variety of noodle dishes, a specialty. Lagman House is located at 2612 East 14th Street in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, about a block from the Sheepshead Bay subway station on the B and M trains. Remember to check the MTA website ( for service changes. • We’ll be dining family style: Everyone will share the dishes that we order. Expect the cost to be approximately $34-$36 per person including tax and tip. In order to cover our fees to, we charge members $2 over the food/tax/tip bill. • Drinks will go on a separate check and must be paid for individually by those who have ordered them. • We order at 7pm sharp; remember to allow sufficient travel time! • Please bring cash, small bills preferred. • RSVP etiquette: We often have a waitlist of people clamoring to join us. Please RSVP responsibly. If you must change your RSVP, please do so at least 24 hours before the scheduled time.

If you don’t show up and haven’t given notice, you’re considered a no-show. Two such incidents and you will be dismissed from the group. (And waitlisters who do get moved up, the same applies to you, so keep your eyes on the prize!) • Tentative Menu: Ban Thon Soup Rainbow Salad Classic Lagman (hand pulled noodles topped with beef) Tongue Salad or Ash Lan Fin (bean jelly and veggies) (TBD) Beshbarmak (lamb with voluptuous noodles) Huashi (multiple meatball personalities bobbing in a bit of broth) Jin Momo Tsomian (stir-fried noodles similar to lomein) Dungan Style Samsa Len Ban Ji (Dungan style cold chicken dish) Manti We’re looking forward to dining with you!
