50 Qapiq

Central Asian in Baku

Feel like you're in a Bukhara backstreet in this buzzing, all-male hang-out for big platefuls of Uzbek-style plov (yellow rice with carrot and lamb) served with copper mini-flagons of ayran (lightly salted yoghurt and water), 25q armudi (glasses) of tea or AZN1.50 glasses of fresh-squeezed pomegranate juice.

Piti, buğlama, kebabs and pomidor-yumurta (scrambled eggs and tomatoes) also available. No dish costs over AZN4.
