When Seen: August 2019
In a Bite: Like a fatty piece of beef or bone broth ramen crammed into a potato chip.
In a Haiku: Beefy in your mouth. Without the skewer danger. Not Mima’s mutton.
Origin Story: Shashlik are the famous meat skewers, traditionally made with lamb, found across Central Asia and other parts of the once great Russian Empire, which makes them a perfect flavor for the supermarket shelves of Kyrgyzstan.
