Food Crawl: Tashkent!

Yik-Ota, Tashkent Region, Uzbekistan
17 Kudos
One of my favorite parts about being in Tashkent was trying the local Uzbek food and flavors. While International cuisine can be found in different parts of the city, (for example my friend and I had sushi at one of the well known Japanese restaurants), I still prefer eating more local dishes! On my first night, my friend took me to a proper Uzbek dinner. The restaurant had a nice vibe and almost every table had a bottle of vodka on it, lol! The menu was strictly in Uzbek so I definitely had to rely on my friend to order. The Uzbek style dumplings are always a delicious choice, and make sure to try the plov which is a famous rice dish. Each region has their version of plov and Tashkent has one of the best I have tried. Another great dish I'd recommend is lagman which is a good noodle dish good on cold and rainy days. Overall the cuisine I had in Tashkent were delicious!
