My throat is no longer swollen shut so I headed out again. First stop the national art gallery which was a surprised. Packed with room after room of really interesting work, most of it Central Asian and of the best quality I have seen since Istanbul.
This humble looking plate of meat and veg and noodles is lagman and the one in the pic below is the best thing I have eaten all trip, better than anything in Turkey, better than anything in Georgia, just amazing.
Flavoured with sumac and some heat and I think bayberry, wonderful.
Dinner was followed by the best tea I have ever had, the waiter just called it traditional Uzbek tea, looked like green tea but sweet, I think he said “sweetened with apple”.
