While discussing Uzbek food, the one can just swallow from hope since the names of the most scrumptious and mouth-watering dishes come as the soul of fantastic fragrance, to be specific plov, manty, shurpa, shashluk, somsa, lagmon. It is difficult to remain quiet while evaluating or essentially looking through the photos of such dishes.

Undoubtedly, the Uzbek cuisine combines cooking traditions borrowed from Turkish, Uygur, Tajik, Tatar and many other nations along with local cooking traditions making our cuisine really specific.
