I’m going to amend my previous post to include an important Central Asian menu option. The three main dishes offered at lunch or dinner are:

1) Noodles with mutton

2) Rice with mutton

3) Mutton on a stick

#3 is shashlyk, a skewer threaded through chunks of meat, usually served on a bed of onions. Shashlyk can be any meat on a skewer – beef, chicken, even pork (which seems odd in Muslim countries). But mutton seems to lie at the heart of everything.
