Craig LaBan ventures to Feasterville and the basement of a strip mall off of Bustleton Pike, where he finds a tantalizing lamb feast at Samarkand, an Uzebeki restaurant that entertains.
There’s no sense in avoiding the lamb-fest, especially with some of the best lamb chops in Philly (“chalagach”), whose thick pads of meat are sublimely tender and crusted with seasoning. It’s worth the $25 splurge, considering most entrées here top out at $15. Though for just $4.99, you can savor a more rustic nibble of true Uzbeki soul and gnaw on the meaty fat of lamb ribs. The chunks of boneless lamb leg, tenderized with a splash of seltzer, are also worthwhile.
