Eating the Globe: Kyrgyzstan

Nick, does this look authentic to you?

I was in the west end of San Francisco today for work so I decided to eat at Silk Road, a mall food court eatery owned by a Kyrgyz man. I got the lagman noodles and a beef samsa bun.

The beef samsa was excellent. It's bursting with beef and some kind of lard/fat/butter.

The lagman was sort of disappointing. The noodles tasted like limp spaghetti out of a box. The sauce was sour.

After my meal, I ended up getting a chicken samsa to go. The beef samsa was better.

Countries tried so far:
Africa: Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, South Africa
Asia: Afghanistan, Burma, China, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, 
Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Yemen
Europe: Bosnia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuainia, Sweden
North America: Canada, El Savador, Mexico, USA
South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Venezuela
Oceania: Tonga
