Food & Dining

Our trips are mostly full board and include 3 meals and 1.5L of mineral water per day and per person (the extras are charged).
In Ulaanbaatar, we always have our lunch and dinner reservations in restaurants with great reputation to the quality of their cuisine, who offer European or local style menus adapted to the tastes of Westerners. At the end of your trip, you may be offered a “farewell dinner” at a higher standard dining to celebrate one last meal with your fellow travelers & travel team. All meals are accompanied by your guide. The most interesting and hot discussions might take place at the dinner table. Who knows?
Some of the local restaurants we work with: Grill StudioBD’s Mongolian BBQ & Modern Nomads
In the Countryside, you will have the opportunity to taste the true local cuisine in “canteens” along your route.
Since the typical Mongolian diet is made up of many fatty meats and dairy products, often a little time is required to adapt to Western palates. That’s why we do not impose local menus at every meal, but instead we will offer menus that are adapted to your habits as often as possible.

We always travel with produce & ingredients that we buy during our stops in the countryside villages. That’s why for lunch and/or for dinner, depending on your accommodation, a fresh, tasty little meal is prepared for you in the great outdoors by your guide or your cook (optional in groups of more than 6 people). If you plan to stay overnight in yurt camps or host families, you can also dine and have breakfast there.

For those who want to home-stay with the nomads, the Mongolian diet is mainly based on sheep meat, dairy products and flour. This is traditionally related to fighting the cold climate in the winters by helping locals gain a high caloric intake to keep warm and healthy.

If you or your fellow travelers are vegan, vegetarian or allergic to any food, especially dairy, please let us know in advance!

In the capital Ulaanbaatar, it is possible to find many different types of food and restaurants for your taste, but in the countryside, the commodities are less diverse and fresh products (fruits and vegetables) are rarer – apart from local dairy products.

Well then, bon appétit!
