The menu has a wide range of
Russian and Uzbek dishes. Borscht (beetroot soup) is a
great introduction to hearty Eastern European flavours.
Plump beef Russian dumplings in chicken broth served
with sour cream and herbs is wonderfully comforting
and could be a meal in itself. Order a basket of yeasty
home-made bread to enjoy with these soups. Authentic
stroganoff has tender strips of beef and onion in a
beefy sauce, served with french fries or rice. Chicken
kiev is a plump and moist chicken breast that oozes a
superb buttery sauce when cut. A side dish of potatoes,
fried with onions and garnished with dill shows how
something so simple can deliver such satisfaction. A
dessert of crepes is nice and light, but deserves a higher
quality of ice cream.
The dearth of Russian restaurants in most
Southeast Asian cities makes Podkova's Russian and
Uzbek comfort food noteworthy for homesick Slavs and
curious newcomers. Decor is down-to-earth, but handpainted
illustrations of Russian folklore add whimsy.
Service is friendly, but slow.
