If you want a foretaste of your future Trans-Eurasian adventure, come here to sample food hailing from all cultures affiliated with Mongolia – Buryat, Kalmyk, Tyvan and Tibetan. For a safe introduction, try Buryat buuzy dumplings. Brave diners tuck into Kalmyk lamb giblet soups and main courses, watering them down with kumiss – fermented mare's milk.
