Minor Somsa has operated for many years in Tashkent. It was one of those places I postponed to visit as a local. But last month I stopped by the spot and it was the best “food” decision. Somsa is just amazing there.
Here they make it in tandyr, there is a lot of meat inside, and the dough is crispy and thin. By the way, beef somsa is the only option you can have here. You can have your somsa in a cosy outside area during spring/summer/early fall. There is the option of getting a special tomato sauce to add flavor to the already delicious somsa. As for drinks, they offer hot black/green tea, kompot (during summer), water and coke.
The least pleasant part is waiting in the long line. There is only one counter where you can buy somsa, and some locals take boxes of somsa (around 50-60). Be patient – it is worth it!
I hope you will enjoy the number 1 somsa place according to my local taste survey. Meanwhile, I will be scouting other yummy somsa spots!
