“Most of the customers in this area are Fujianese people or Cantonese people, that’s why Xinjiang style food has never opened up around here. I persevere and try to get people to try these flavors because I’m excited to share this type of food.”

Meet Chef/Owner Pang Gil Hwa of Xin Jiang Prosperity Kebabs, a street food cart tucked under the Manhattan Bridge in New York City. A 2012 Vendy Awards Finalist.

On this very busy, very noisy corner of Chinatown, Pang Gil Hwa barbecues over a dozen different types of kebabs with her special Xin Jiang spice and smoke treatment. Her lamb kebabs (only $1 each) are the reason she’s known in these parts – tender, juicy and full of distinct flavors that remind Pang Gil Hwa of her home province in China. Enjoy her story!

Congrats to all the finalists. Be sure to get your tickets to the NYC Vendys Awards on September 15th.

Thanks so much for watching food. curated.! Happy Eating!
