Chorsu Samarkanda

UZBEKISTAN 🇺🇿

Quick Instagram Dispatch from Gravesend, Brooklyn:
Literally meaning "four streams" in Persian language, but signifying a crossroads, "chorsu" is the perfect name for this establishment at the intersection of Kings Highway and McDonald Avenue and the F train. Named after the once-famous bazaar in Samarkand, the cultural capital of Uzbekistan, you can expect portions of all cuisines enjoyed in the country to be here. Uzbek food in Brooklyn can sometimes be hit or miss, but usually hits the spot even when the meal does not wow. Thankfully this meal was a hit and did a lot of wow-ing. Our table of four went for a bit of everything, Uzbek favorites mixed with Russian items, Korean-influenced fish, and even a Greek salad. Chorsu Samarkanda had been on my to-do list forever, glad we finally stopped in to enjoy it. BYOB.
