Vegetarian food in Uzbekistan cafes & restaurants
There has not been a vegetarian food culture in Uzbekistan historically; many dishes contain boiled or fried beef or lamb. However, we grow a great amount of vegetables and fruits under the sunny sky and now the cooks have come up with replacing meat with vegetables in common dishes.
In addition, there are many side dishes without meat that could easily replace the main dish. Actually, they are perceived like the side dishes, as the main dish contains meat by default. That’s for, vegetarian food in Uzbekistan is rather developed than it seems to.
Along with this, local chefs have mastered cooking many vegetarian dishes from international cuisine. Thus, vegetarian food in Uzbekistan is easily found in many restaurants and cafes. We have prepared a list of restaurants in Uzbekistan with popular vegetarian dishes to ease your search.
