The Mongol culture is not really passed on through the food that they eat. It is not as rich or as awarded as other cultures, however, Mongolia’s cuisine should still be on your must-try list, just to complete the whole experience. So, here are seven dishes and beverages to try out while in Mongolia.

  • Buuz


    Buuz is the traditional Mongolian dumpling. Expect them to be filled with ground meat, just meat. They are dense, larger than the dumplings you might expect to see on a dim sum menu, and the meat inside could be pretty much anything depending on what the roadhouse has at the time. Mutton is typical but also expect goat, yak or even camel meat. Quite often they are made to order, by hand, so you may wait 30 minutes or more after ordering to get your steaming hot buuz.

  • Airag


    Airag is Mongolian traditional drink. Rural people making summer time in it. Mongolian people used to airag in Naadam festival, wedding, New Year and others. Some people can drink 2-3 letre one sit. Airag has included 7-8% of alcohol. So you will drink a lot of airag maybe you hang over. Airag is Mongolian respect and safely drink so you never to spit and drop it outside. During the Naadam and New Year festival who win the wrestling competition, people present him with one big bowl airag.

    Specially served up during the Naadam festival as fast food. Harder to find in restaurants. Yes, the white pieces are not mushrooms, they are pure fat! This is the closest thing we found to “Mongolian BBQ” in Mongolia, if you are having Mongolian BBQ in your home country, it hasn’t got much to do with real Mongolian Food Culture, other than yes, they do BBQ meat some of the time.
