Turkmen Koreans | April 10, 2008

I have a neighbor who is a Turkmen Korean. In fact, they’re a big family, with grandparents, children and grandchildren. You won’t believe me if I tell you what they do for a living. They make so-called Korean salads, a combination of salted carrot and everything else, for example mushrooms. This is absolutely stereotypical, but whatever, their salads are excellent.

Where from, how, when and why they came to Turkmenistan? I have no idea. Probably migrants of 1950 Korean war. Maybe not. It’s not an issue around here, nobody cares.

My wife likes Uyghur kitchen and Korean salads. The extraordinary mixture of cultures in Turkmenistan creates all kinds of interchanges. Your blogger here gets to live a bit of every culture and cuisine.

  2. Şol salady men ýaman gowy görýän.
    Soňky döwür ýasaýan köpeldi, bir paketjigini 3 manatdan satýalar. Yň gowysy diýeniň bahasy 5 manat. Türkmen bütün gyş şony iýip geçdi 🙂
