A bakery has hidden. These young bakers are brothers that like Russian football.

They get up very early. At 5:30 the first batch of cakes is ready. And bakers go to bed also early, of course if they do not watch football.

Cakes are made from Kazakh flour, it is better than Uzbek one, and the Russian one is the best variant, as bakers say.

  1. That place looks filthy. Look how dirty that green-blue bowl is. I can see it’s been a long time since they washed those rags that cover the walls. I wouldn’t eat those cakes or whatever the Hell they are.

  2. Hawe always been fashinated by those breads stuck on the ovens walls since i was a child (common in many contries i think). Hawe som versions here too, allways interesting wathing how that stuff are made in other cultures.

  3. The #6 reply is absolutely right, it is not cake but flat bread. More accurately its called leposhka or in Uzbek as you can see it written in the picture above in Russian letters, “HOH 500c” or NON for 500 som (Uzbek currency), means bread same as Idian Naan also means flat bread.

  4. It is, actually a flat bread, extremely tasty. There are open bakeries at Uzbek markets, where you can see how its done, not filthy at all 🙂
