The most popular Kazakh dish is 'Besbarmak'. It is the main dish of the national cuisine and is translated as 'five fingers', and because the dish is eaten with hands (literally, "beshbarmak" means "five fingers").
Classic recipe of Besbarmak is usually boiling a broth with several types of meat (horse meat, lamb, beef and camel meat) and rectangle-shaped pasta ( large sized noodles) and onions.
Chunks of boiled meat are cut and served by the host in order of the guests' importance. With the family’s members the guests are sitting on the floor around a low-lying table called dastarkhan.
