How is Mongolian food

Mongolian cuisine is based on mutton and flour in all sorts of forms… mutton with noodles, fried mutton pancakes, steamed mutton dumplings, fried noodles with mutton chunks etc. The mutton dumplings (called: buuz) aren’t bad (tip for cholesterol watchers: drain the fat before eating). Second best is goulash, which tastes better than it sounds. In summer there are lots of dairy products like dried cheese and airag (fermented horses milk). If you think you’ll need more fruit and vegetables in your diet, you’ll need to fend for yourself (local markets offer a decent selection of greens). In the countryside you’ll be car camping most of the time so before leaving the city stock up on fruit, veggies, pasta, snacks and plenty of bottled water.
