Turkmenistan traditional food

The cuisine of Turkmenistan, is similar to that of the rest of Central Asia.  Plov, shorba and manty are the staple, everyday food, which is also served at celebrations. 

A wide variety of filled pies and fried dumplings are available in restaurants and bazaars, including somsa, gutap (often filled with spinach), and ishlykly. These are popular with travelers and taxi drivers, as they can be eaten quickly on the run, and are often sold at roadside stands.
