The foundation of the traditional Mongolian food is based on the products of the animal nomadic herders raise in the Mongolian steppes – meat and milk. Those simple materials are processed with a variety of methods, and combined with vegetables and flour.
The meal type also varies depending on the season. Dairy products are mainly used during summer and autumn. Mongolians cook the meaty meals mostly once a day in summer and autumn but use more meat in winter and spring to gain enough calories and protein needed during the harsh time of winter and spring.
As well as, there is a big difference between the meals of the local nomads and the meals served at the tourist ger camps.
Meals at Ger Camps and Restaurants
In Ulaanbaatar, we choose from finest European and Mongolian restaurants and in the countryside, ger camps serve some European and Mongolian meals. Meat is the main recipe for lunch and dinner. In particular, traditional Mongolian meals contain more meat. Tourist ger camp example menu of the meals is; tea, coffee, bread, jam, butter, eggs and sausage for breakfast. There are some cookies, cheese, cereals, pancakes and more will be served at some of the ger camps for breakfast. They serve some salads, cream/vegetable/ Mongolian soups and main courses (pasta, rice, vegetables, beef/mutton/chicken/fish near lakes/rivers), dessert and tea for lunch.
