Russian / Uzbek Shirin Cafe Manalapan NJ

Stopped in here for take out last week.
It is a cozy cafe.
They do serve lunch and dinner.
It is located in the Design Center on Rt 9 across from Konbu.

This was is wonderful local surprise!
Keep in mind, everything was made to order, I only did some quick bites, not a full meal, and it did take about 20 minutes for the food to be ready.

Ordered a few items for take out
Fried Chuchvara - These are very small, meat filled, delicious morsels.
Almost like a fried tortellini.

Samsa with Pumpkin - Amazing! Puffed Pastry stuffed with pumpkin, maybe a hint of cumin spice, not sure.

Hachapuri - Amazing! Puffed Pastry with a goat cheese like flavor and greens. Wonderful!

If you have ever eaten a Russian dinner feast, you know that the food is good, they never stop bringing more food, BYOB means Vodka, and the presentation is impeccable.
They have the option at this restaurant for private parties as well but seems to be a much quieter and cozy option then the other Russian choices in the area.
The hosts here were wonderful and helpful!

In my opinion worth checking out!
