  Cooking by the Lake
by MrRandMcnally

I've tried to point out some good resturants in Bishkek but as many other visitors to Kyrgyzstan have pointed out, nothing in the country is better than eating out in the Country. Lagman,spicy noodles, and shashkyk, kabobs,are available at cafes around Bishkek and in the mountians you can find smoked Fish, Bread dumplings, Mutton, fresh jams, and really amazing Mellons. Put a 30 pund water melon in a mountian stream, put a rock on it to keep it from floating away and enjoy a chilled treat.

Favorite Dish: The Best meal I had in Kyrgyzstan was freshly made Shashlyk with bread, melon, and lots of Vodka cooked outside on the shores of Issy Kul.
