Uyghur restaurant brings new flavor to Herndon

A new Uyghur restaurant is bringing some new flavors to the Town of Herndon.

Bostan Uyghur Cuisine, which also has a location in Arlington, quietly opened its doors in November at 1141 Elden Street.

A representative for the business told FFXnow that the restaurant aims to bring a different taste to Herndon.

“There is not any Uyghur food [in] Herndon,” the business representative said.

Uyghurs are a majority-Muslim ethnic group native to Xinjiang, China, where they’ve been subject to persecution for years. A sizable Uyghur community congregated in the D.C. area over the years, leading to an emerging food scene that also includes Mim’s Food and Eerkin’s in Fairfax and Dolan Uyghur Restaurant in Chantilly.

Like at its Arlington location, Bostan in Herndon serves halal food. Items on the menu include a mix of Uyghur kabobs, noodles, laghman — a mix of pulled meat, noodles and vegetables — and dumplings.

The Herndon location is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
