Bishkek

Bishkek, formerly Pishpek and Frunze, was ruled by Kokhand and from about 1860 by Russia and capital of Kirghiz ASSR (independent 1991) since 1926. The massive Soviet building stye, sometimes quite interresting, you see everywhere. 

From the arrival hall to the right (most likely all the taxi drivers hanging around there will tell you there is non, but if you wait a while there will be one, #380, going to Molodaya Gvardiya av. corner Chui av. and back to the airport from there, 40 Som.

A taxi from the airport is 400 to 500 Som (after some bargaining), going back 600 Som, the driver will most likely have no change!

The Jalal Abad is a quite good local food with traditional seating or regular chairs and tables. Unfortunately no English menue and no English speaking waiters.
I had Plov (rice with mutton), which was quite good, because is was the easiest thing to order. 

Togolok Moldow Street, between Kievskaya Street and Chui Avenue
