Food Crawl: Bukhara

Bukhara, Bukhara Region, Uzbekistan
12 Kudos
Bukhara has an amazing food scene! There are lots of restaurants that offer local food and also some small eateries you can find just walking around some of its famous sites. Luckily I was with my local friend/guide who knew some of the best places in town. The variety of salad at the restaurants in Bukhara was endless. Just before the main course they brought us some. I love variety so this was good for me. Of course I had the plov in Bukhara. My friend and I also had some street foods that was some of the regions famous dumplings. and on my last day we did n adventurous foodie day and had some typical goat dishes. Overall it was a very interesting foodie experience in Bukhara.
