Most likely, the gastronomical traditions of the Middle East began to make their way in the Urals long before the first Russian settlements, but became widespread only 150 years ago when the Russian Empire conquered the Turkestan Samarkand and Tashkent. The next wave of Uzbek cuisine fell onto the Soviet 1950s: publishers issued the first collections of eastern recipes and restaurants working with the Fergana and Bukhara traditions were opened in Moscow.
Uzbek cuisine was introduced in Ekaterinburg spontaneously and in the 90s was mostly present in small diners in one-story wooden houses and only later did the first conceptual places appear.
In 2004 an eastern dining room was opened in the historical restaurant Uralskye Pelmeni where the Uzbek cuisine was served on that same balcony the Belmesi restaurant resides at now after reconstruction.
Bakhrom Sattorov came to Ekaterinburg from an old Ferghan city of Quva, where the traditions of markets and choyhona exist for more than 10 centuries. Bakhrom is a skilled choyhona master and a great connoisseur of the national cuisine. He brought the best specialists on flatbreads, meat and thick soups to Belmesi.
