Uzbekistan Day 6: Food and Attractions Tour of Khiva + Unforgettable Family Meal!
Khiva is another ancient city of Uzbekistan, known for its mud walled city. It’s another great city to explore for a combination of the history and food. And the food was different in Khiva than in any other city I had been to so far in Uzbekistan.
Islam Khoja Minaret - We started the day in Khiva old town, visiting some of the famous sights, and climbing to the top of a minaret. My legs are still sore!
Hotel Malika Kheivak - At a small and peaceful restaurant, we lounged on the traditional Uzbek tables and ate gumma, something similar to fried dumpling pockets.
Djuma Mosque - Known for its hypostyle hall, this is a landmark mosque and museum to visit when you’re in Khiva.
Tea House Mirza Boshi - For mid-morning snack, we headed over to a teahouse in the center of the old city to try a dish called shivit oshi, an Uzbekistan Khiva speciality of green dill noodles topped with meat stew. It was delicious.
Shivit oshi - 20,000 UZS ($2.42) per plate
Fish Restaurant - For next lunch we headed out of the city a little ways to a river and pond to eat fish. The fish was fresh and we had both a fried fish and a grilled fish, both of which were delicious.
Total price - 135,000 UZS ($16.33)
Family home cooked meal - We woke up the next day and were invited over to a local family home to cook and eat. They took hospitality to the next level, welcoming us into their home, preparing special tuhum barak (egg stuffed dumplings), and a surprise plov at the end of our meal. It was one of the most memorable and special meals of my entire trip to Uzbekistan. Thank you to this amazing family.
And that wraps up this entire Uzbekistan Food and Travel series. It was an incredible trip, full of delicious and massive portions of food, hospitable people, and immense history. Again, thank you to Bekruz and the Ministry of Tourism Uzbekistan for making this trip happen.

Thank you for watching!
It was awesome to see all series of your documentary about Uzbekistan, Mark! But next time also visit Ferghana Valley region located in East of the country. Those places and people living there are also beautiful. Thank you for your videos!
The only reason why i "disliked" this video is because you drank coca-cola & yet misled your viewers by saying that it's "red wine" at first...& then "sweet local wine" after having it! :D Come on Mark, have some respect for our intelligence!! Just because they served you Coke on a wine glass, does NOT mean that you have to play along with it by uttering a lie!!
We can all literally see the coca-cola bottles on the table...& absolutely NO wine bottle at all!
Furthermore, those hosts are probably Muslims...some of them even wear headscarves...so it's very offensive & downright UNacceptable on your part to represent the Uzbek culture that way...coz any practising Muslim family might take objection to the fact that their hospitality has been wrongly interpreted as "red/local wine serving gesture" in front of the world!
You know the taste of Coca-Cola very well...& yet you lied! Not cool at all, Mark...sorry, but for the first time, i'm really disappointed after watching one of your videos!
Hope you'll be more authentic from here on, mate! Cheers! :)
Hi Mark....Recent past i have been observing you have turned your self into Travel Vlogger than a Food Vlogger, no offence keep up the good work and i appreciate it. But i kind of loved your old videos where most of the videos were completely on food.
I really appreciate the way you accompanied by Ur family... specially with a toddler... hats off to u n Ur wife...she seems to be so cooperative n sensible... otherwise generally good reviewers don't travel much once they have married or kids...but Ur son n spouse seems to enjoy it too...but it takes a lot of courage n money too to travel the world with family the way u do...
