A Ramen and Friends adventure all the way down in Brighton Beach. That train ride was tough on a hangover. But it’s pretty cool walking out into a totally different neighborhood –big Russian community. The restaurant we were going to, Elza Fancy Food, is Uzbek – Korean. The menu looked like part Korean and part Russian. But I did recognize that Uzbek style bread.
The Borscht was great when sour cream broke up in it. The beef was tender.
The Plov looked like Beef Fried Rice, but it was better that what I expected. It was surprisingly great.Â I only ate about half of it. So stuffed from eating everyone else’s food and the side dishes that came out.
The Apple Compot drink was nice. And the 99cent beer we got from the bodega nearby was the perfect cure to my hangover.
