Xinjiang/Uyghur Food

Where do I find polou (zhuafan) and naan (nang) in Kunming? The places I knew a few years ago are gone now, neighborhoods changed.

@ Fredr
There is a XinJiang food restaurant in Spring City 66 shopping mall. The name is 提雅寻味丝路 or something like that. 5th floor. Not sure about polou and naan, though.

Thanks, maybe have time to check it out. Only two days in KM, then to Chengdu. I know a very good Uyghur place there, folks from Yili. Used to know a good place in KM, long gone now.

Used to love Xinjiang food. There were a few places around town but all seem to have shut up shop now.

Maybe it's time a new one was started.

Didn't find anything in KM. All the places I knew gone, chai... On my way to Chengdu now, know a great place there, about here:
Will post a more accurate location in a couple of days.

For Xinjiang Uyghur food in Chengdu, here's the accurate location:

These Uyghur folk are from Yili in Xinjiang, excellent polou and naan at good prices. The places along here on the first ring road are a little below street level. This one is easy to spot because they cook the naan and shashlik (kebeb) on the steps above the door. There's another place a couple of doors farther west, fancier, more expensive, and not as good. No naan....

The place in Nanning, the Uyghur folk are from Hotan (Hetian); The one in Hohhot, Uyghurs from Aksu (Akesu).

Hope there will be a good place in Kunming sometime soon!
