Thanks to my Kazakh friends, Aigerim and Aika, I was able to eat my favorite Kazakh dish called beshbarmak here in Saigon. The last time I had this dish was in Tennessee with my Kazakh friend, Murat, and his wife. Back in my Peace Corps Kazakhstan days, I used to eat beshbarmak nearly everyday with my Kazakh host family in Karatau. Boy do I miss this dish. Everything Aigerim made tonight was homemade including the noodles. It was very delicious, all the guests were full as per Kazakh custom. It has been awhile since I ate horsemeat as well. 🙂
It is nice to have my favorite Kazakh dish in one of my favorite countries, Vietnam. Kop rakhmet Aigerim and Aika!!!
