Uzbek food is a distinctive and well known feature of Uzbekistan Culture. Though the traditional Uzbekistan Food comprises fruits, vegetables and pasta type dishes yet the different preparations of meat have added largely to their diet recently.

Traditional dishes in Uzbekistan, which are usually regularly prepared are bread, rice, thick soups, stews sometimes served with noodles or dumplings. Meat pastries and shashlik (mutton or liver cooked on skewers) are also the popular dishes of Uzbeks.
