[Kuala Lumpur] A Taste of Kazakhstan at Astana Restaurant

klyeoh | Dec 17, 201404:21 AM     2

Astana Restaurant at Bukit Jalil is a haven for Central Asians students there looking for some comfort food from home. The restaurant offers a wide variety of Kazakh and Russian dishes, including 'kazy'(horse-meat sausages). What we had this evening:

Samsa

A baked Kazakh pastry filled with minced beef-mutton-onions and spices. The crisp, flaky pastry enclosing the fennel-scented meat-onion filling were delicious.

Olivie

A Russian-style potato salad. Very well-done here - loved the corn kernels mixed into the salad.

Lagman

Hand-pulled noodles, cooked with beef, celery, tomatoes and spices. Very well-done - the noodle was chewy as it should be, and the broth was hearty and delicious.

Lepeshki

A round naan-like Kazakh bread.

Pelmeni

Boiled dumplings of minced beef in unleavened dough wrapper, served with 'Smetana' (sour cream). Very well-made here.

Plov

Central Asian rice cooked in mutton broth and fat, with mutton and grated carrots. Delish, also comes topped with 'kazy' (horse-meat sausages).

Manti

Steamed dumplings filled with minced beef-mutton-fat and onions.

Samsa cut open - with meat-onion filling shown.

Very good service and nice ambience. Astana also has a good selection of Eastern European-style cakes: Medovik, Spartak, Anechka, and Oreshki.
