I had dinner at Fu Run in Flushing with a large group last week. While I don't plan on writing about the whole meal, I want to highlight the "Muslim Lamb Chop," a cult favorite among Flushing food fans.
From what I can tell, the lamb "chop" (it's actually a whole breast of lamb) is braised, then fried and covered in heaps of cumin and black and white sesame seeds. The meat, which pulls right off the bone, still retains a bit of chew, while the familiar Northern Chinese flavors of gamey lamb funk + cumin fills your nostrils. The best bits were the chewy, crusty edges slathered in cumin. Even after being devoured, a pile of cumin remained atop the fully soaked piece of lettuce.
It's the dish so nice we ordered it twice.
