Food and Drink in Almaty

Most Kazakhs, especially those who live in the rural areas, make their living from animal husbandry. This led to a meat-oriented food culture in Kazakhistan, but you need to be aware of one thing: Kazakhs frequently use horse meat in their dishes. This applies to Almaty cuisine as well, which derives from Kazakh cuisine and meat dishes in most restaurants are prepared with horse meat.

Almaty food and drink culture is very rich. While you can experience new and local flavors if you like to, those who do not want to break their dietary habits will not have trouble. Almaty hosts many world-famous fast-food and cafe chains, but you should give the local dishes a chance if you do eat meat.

Pastries are another important element of Kazakh cuisine : beshparmak is a must-try for pastry lovers. Another pastry called bavursak, very similar to the Turkish pişi, is also very popular. Lamb is another important ingredient in Almaty cuisine, and the traditional lamb stew with vegetables is a favorite.
