Local food is the cultural mirror of a region, reflecting its history, geography and folk custom. The Kashgar food has a long history back to the days of the ancient Silk Road. Kashgar is a natural post-house for the businessmen from around the world. Caravans and monks from the east or from the west would all take a rest in this small town in order to continue their journey. When they were happily enjoying the great hospitality of the local people, they brought plenty of exotic food from their motherlands. Their contributions together formed the diverse flavors of Kashgar delicacies.
