The DC area is home to a lot of restaurants, and among them are hidden gems that many Washingtonians aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food players to share with us their under-the-radar recommendations for Dining Confidential. Are you a chef with a suggestion? Shoot us an email.
For this edition of Dining Confidential, Sushiko and Daikaya's Daisuke Utagawa shares a road trip-worthy dining destination.
"My Russian wife and I make periodic trips to her favorite Russian supermarket called International Food Market right outside Baltimore. And every time we make that trip, we go to Choyhona Silk Road Bistro on Reisterstown road. Choyhona is an Uzbek restaurant that serves excellent food for a very reasonable price and the service is genuine. Inside the restaurant, the main language spoken by the customers seems to be Russian or Uzbek.
My favorite menu items: Samarkand salad (beef tongue and cheese), eggplant salad, Lagman soup, manti and lamb kebabs They serve no alcohol but they make very good fruit compote and they also allow BYOB."
