After our trip to Uzgen, where we learned about the value of brown rice, Atabek invites us into the best Plov restaurant in the city. It lies on the southeastern outskirts, on a small mountain. The name is Panorama Restaurant and, as the name suggests, it offers a magnificent panoramic view of Osh. In the valley below is the technical University of Osh.
First, we enjoy the view, but it is still a bit early, as the restaurant only serves food after sunset. So, we decide to take a walk in the neighborhood. The restaurant is in the district of Amir-Timur, or On-Adyr for short, which is mainly populated by Uzbeks.
Most houses are enclosed by a wall, but we succeed in the one or other look into an inner courtyard. Everything makes a kind, clean impression. As a rule, fruit-trees or vines are in the inner courtyard.
A resident invites us for a tea on his terrace, unfortunately, we can not accept because the food is already ordered. To our surprise, he speaks German. He worked for several years in Germany.
He shows us the beautiful pomegranates growing in his courtyard. His wife proudly presents the grandchild.
We go back to the restaurant to watch the sunset on the terrace.
The landscape is dipped in marvelous colors.
Then comes our food. Of course, we eat plov, made of the famous brown rice from Uzgen, with lamb, beef, yellow carrots, quail egg, and dried apricots.
The plov is accompanied by the National Kyrgyz salad, called Shakarap, made of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and red basil.
It tastes delicious and we let out last evening in Osh fade away comfortably.
