Uzbek Goodness

 While we were lodging our friend Nicole and her broken leg, she needed to go downtown to the candy store to get candy to take back to the States.  We decided to do lunch downtown, too, at Caravan.  We hadn't been there for a while, and the decor of little tents hadn't changed.  All three of us ordered tea, and we were served tea and what I know as chruscki from my Polish American side and jam as sweetener.  There were cherry and apricot jams, and both were excellent.  We ended up going through two full pots of tea.

What's a Moldovan lunch without pickles?  So we ordered some.

I had salad, a manty, and chuchvara soup.  I love chuchvara!  It's got a very good lamb broth with little tortellini type things filled with meat in it.  The broth has a very rich texture to it.

Andreas and Nicole both had pilaf.  The pilaf is fluffy and full of pine nuts, pomegranate, raisins, meat, and other good things.
