We had a hankering for some Borscht and knew just where to get it. Located within Megan Avenue 2 just a few hundred metres away from the KLCC intersection was Central Asia, an Uzbekistani restaurant that we had read about online.
A diminutive, little restaurant with several tables and two eating berths Central Asia was able to weather the turmoil of the past two years thanks in part to its takeout business. We also read that it draws a fair number of patrons during the weekdays from the many offices nearby.
We carefully perused the rather extensive menu and quickly settled on:
- a bowl of Olivye Salad for RM8.50
- a bowl of Borsh for RM14.50
- a plate of Plov for RM16.50
- 4 skewers of Shashlik for RM36.00
- a can of Coca Cola for RM3.50
- a pot of Uzbek Black Tea for RM5.00
- Uzbeki bread for RM5.00
- Beef Somsa (Samosa?) for RM6.50
- Chicken Somsa (Samosa?) for RM6.00
An hour later we emerged from Central Asia eager to resume our KLCC walkabout.
Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
