Austin’s first Uzbekistan restaurant is here with Uzeat, a restaurant featuring cuisine from the Central Asian country. The restaurant is now open in Northwest Austin, located at 8650 Spicewood Spring Road. It claims to be the first central Asian restaurant of its kind and offers a unique blend of Uzbek, Russian, and Mediterranean dishes.
For those uninitiated to Uzbek cuisine, the menu offers helpful explanations for each dish. Traditional offerings include palov or osh (also known as pilaf, lamb and vegetables with cooked rice), manti and pelmeni (two kinds of dumplings), and blini (meat-filled crepes). All meats are halal, and vegetarian options are available. The restaurant also plans to host events with live music.
Uzeat is open from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday; from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday; noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. The restaurant offers a lunch buffet for $9.99 Tuesday through Sunday.
