1. STREET-SIDE STALL: Dehydrated Yogurt Balls
ADDRESS: On the side of the road driving from Tashkent up Greater Chimgan Mountain

⚪As we wind our way up Greater Chimgan Mountain, part of the Chatkal Mountain range, we decide to stop, stretch our legs and try some local handmade food. These yummy little dehydrated yogurt balls come in an assortment of flavors including basil and chili flavored. Most of the stalls are family run, passed down generation by generation.

?PRICE: 5 USD per kg/41,610 UZS per kg
2. SAZANCHIK: Mutton Meat
ADDRESS: Chimgan Mountain of Tashkent
OPEN: April – September | 8AM – 1AM

Sazanchik boasts traditional nomadic food, which guests eat in one of their yurts to get a glimpse of nomadic life in the mountains of Uzbekistan. This restaurant is known for their incredible mountain lamb, considered the wagyu of lamb in Uzbekistan. Due to adapting to the extreme weather and living conditions, the mountain lambs in Tashkent have less fat than typical lambs.

?UZBEK MOUNTAIN LAMB: Prepare the lamb using mountain herbs and lemon before wrapping it and allowing it to marinate overnight (12 hours). After fully marinating, place the lamb over a fire to roast for 6-7 hours, until the meat is fully cooked and the skin nice and crispy.

?PRICE: 350 USD/2,911,168 UZS for whole sheep | 18 USD/149,717 UZS per kg
3. SAZANCHIK: Beshbarmak (Flat Noodles + Horse Sausage)
ADDRESS: Chimgan Mountain of Tashkent
OPEN: April – September | 8AM – 1AM

Beshbarmak means “five fingers,” and refers to the fact that this traditional nomadic dish is meant to be eaten using your hands. The woman preparing this dish for us for us has been making besh barmaq for 30 years. While the dish itself is tasty, it also serves a very practical purpose: the flat noodles fill you up and keep you full for long time while the horse meat keeps you warm in the cold mountain weather.

?BESHBARMAK: Mixing chicken eggs, salt and flour, create the dough for the noodles. Knead the dough and then roll it with the largest rolling pin you can find. Cut into square pieces. Boil the flat square noodles in horse stock and place them on a large round dish. The sauce contains horse fat extract, dried potatoes, onion and horse stock. Finally, pour the sauce over the noodles and then pile on horse meat, horse intestine and horse sausage.

?PRICE: 4 USD/33,281 UZS

Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.

I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I’m a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.

Don’t forget to subscribe to Best Ever Food Review Show, so we can connect through food and travel and become Bestys!
