Uzbekistan Day 2: Tashkent
Thank you to B. Hamzaev - Head of Marketing and Promotion of Uzbekistan Tourism. Check out Bekruz: goo.gl/M14aZW

On Day 2 of our food tour through Uzbekistan we were spent the day eating our way through Tashkent, the largest and capital city. The day before (Day 1) we were also in Tashkent, but there was still so much more to eat.
Somsa - Uzbek somsa, or also frequently called samosa, is probably the national snack or light meal of Uzbekistan, and of Central Asia. It’s something that’s so common, I don’t think I went even a single day without eating one or many when I was in Uzbekistan - the good news is they are incredible delicious. In an area of Tashkent called Minor, I think they make the best version, famous for their teardrop shape as they droop down in the tandoor oven. The little pockets of dough are filled with mutton, onions, and light spices. They are incredibly delicious.
Price - 3,000 UZS ($0.37) per piece
Mutton fry - Next Bekruz took us to one of this favorite restaurants in Tashkent, a place located above a car wash specializing in meat, lamb of course, and fries. You order by the kilo, and we got a kilo of lamb fried in lamb fat, and a kilo of fries. But before the main platter feast we ate some kebabs, which were spectacular as well.
Total price - 48,000 UZS ($5.89)
Besh Panja- 5 fingers kebab - Another interesting kebab to eat in Uzbekistan is the 5 finger kebab because it’s prongs with 5 skewers in the shape of a hand. It was another meat snack, and it was delicious.
Price - 44,000 UZS ($5.41)
Sheep organs donut - Since it was close by, we stopped for an Uzbek snack of what Bekruz called a “hardcore Uzbek donut.” Again a pocket of dough filled with a mix of chopped up organs, and deep fried. It was tasty, especially with tomato sauce.
We then on the spur of the moment took a detour and headed out to this meat market to sample some more lamb, chicken, pickles and potatoes. People were extremely nice, and it was very fun.
Uzbek Choyhona - Experience an Uzbek Choyhona was one of the most memorable meals of my entire food tour in Uzbekistan. Along with an entire table filled with food, the main dish was an entire oxtail cooked in its own melted fat. It was insanely good. Thank you to Baha and Rashad for putting on the feast.
Thank you for watching Uzbekistan Day 2!

It looks like he has no joints in his jaw. Almost as if he could open his mouth and swallow a lamb whole, like a giant snakeman.

In india it is samosa and it is oil fried and fill with boil potatoes and peas instead of meat.

Guys, do you know that in Uzbekistan there are some uzbek fast food brends like Les Ailes (instead of KFC), Evos (instead of Makdonalds) and indeed these uzbek fast foods are much better than famous kfc and Makdonalds...
