Uma’s is one of Rockaway's more modern, cool, and lively restaurants, and focuses on Uzbek food. Specifically, they specialize in fresh pirozhki, filled with anything from egg and scallion to green cabbage to beef and rice. Kebabs are another big fixture on the menu, in addition to a bunch of other dumplings, salads, and rice-based dishes. There’s also an Uma’s stall in the 97th Street beach concessions for when you’re too wet and sandy to enter a restaurant.
