On our last evening in Kyrgyzstan, one wants to show us something special and invites us to the Ethno-Complex Supara for dinner.
The Supara is a restaurant that not only values traditional Kyrgyz food but also reflects the entire ambiance of nomadic life.
The restaurant lies on the southern outskirts of Bishkek at the foot of a small dam of a reservoir. The proximity to the water promises pleasant temperatures even on hot summer days.
Different replicas of yurts can host different parties. Weddings with up to 200 guests can take place here.
A large outdoor grill ensures the supply of fresh grill specialties. All yurts have different furniture and design. Traditional Kyrgyz music and dance groups are also provided. Many guests wear Kyrgyz clothes.
There also are outside areas where you can eat on terraces in the open.
A man of giant stature in warlike clothes shows guests around and explains old domestic and agricultural devices. Normally you see these things only in museums. He proudly shows his sword.
In one of the pavilions, we eat grilled skewers that tasted very good. But, our hunger kept in limits, as we are not used to eating so often.
Soon after dark, we leave this beautiful place again, as we have to reach our flight to Tashkent very early the next morning.
