Definitely not the best plov we have tried in our two-week trip in Uz. As stated in the headline, the meat was so-so - on our way out we had a chance to see what locals got, their plov seemed to be full of decent...More

Based on my personal experience, best meals are mainly offered where locals eat. This Osh markazi (Plov Center) is one of them, where you can hardly find a seat during lunchtime. We were lucky to a) get a table for a large group (8 people);...More
