Almaty, Kazakhstan - Traditional Kazakh meal at Kishlak

klyeoh | Nov 23, 201407:57 AM    

Dining out in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan must be so rare on Chowhound that the CH moderators have directed me to post on the Middle East & Africa board. Anyhoo, here goes - my first meal in Almaty. My hotel concierge highly-recommended Kishlak, often rated one of the top 10 restaurants in Almaty.

Pretty atmospheric restaurant - traditional decor, and wait-staff in Kazakh costumes. What I opted for this evening:

- "Beshbarmak", a traditional Kazakh dish which consisted of boiled "kazy" (horse-meat sausage), "zhaya" (rump of horse), flat sheets of pasta and potatoes, with an onion-dill dressing. It's accompanied by a "shorpo" (mutton broth). The "beshbarmak" was served in a large, traditional Kazakh bowl called "kese". Very tasty indeed, I could have this every day and not tire of it.

- "Manti" - a boiled pasta dumpling, with minced mutton, squash and onion filling, flavoured with black pepper. Very good rendition here.
