Samsy (more quick and cheap eats)
Samsy are the Central Asian version of Indian samosas. They are not nearly as spicy as their Indian cousins, however. They come stuffed with a choice of lamb, chicken, cheese or mushrooms. I usually get the chicken ones. At 15 som a piece they are undoubtedly the cheapest prepared food available in Bishkek. This morning I ate two while walking to work in the rain.
