    Bashkir Food

    by icepryncyss Written Mar 1, 2011

    Ufa is the capital of the republic of Bashkortostan, the national home of the Bashkir people. The Bashkirs are traditionally a nomadic people, of Turkic origin, and with an Islamic cultural tradition. And they have food that's as fun to say as it is delicious to eat!

    There are many opportunities in Ufa to sample traditional Bashkir food. My favorite place is "Pyshka" - a chain with many locations around the city, and affordable!

    - For starters, try "uchpachmak" (uch-PACH-mak) - a meat and potato pasty. True uchpachmak is made with mutton (sheep meat), but most often it's made with beef.

    - A tasty dessert if "chak-chak" - fried dough covered in honey. It's only mildly sweet, so it's perfect even for those who don't like sweets. Be aware, though, chak-chak is prepared a little differently in every cafe. If you venture into a supermarket, you will see a few varieties to choose from.
