Gril' (more fast food in Bishkek)
This is the second entry in my series on fast food in Bishkek. All over Bishkek there are stands selling gril' or whole rotisserie chickens grilled over open flames. The chickens are marinated in some sort of spice mixture and sold with a remoulade sauce and lavash. The latter being a tortilla like bread that soaks up a lot of the greasy juice from the chicken. Since they only serve gril' in units of whole chickens I did not eat my first one until yesterday. I can not eat a whole chicken by myself. But, last night my girlfriend and I ate one together. It was quite tasty, but really heavy on the grease.
