Uzbekistan (Sunset Blvd)
Joan went to the restaurant Uzbekistan for breakfast earlier this month. This time we're bringing a group of 7 to try more of their Eastern European food! We've witnessed an odd extreme difference between the insane amount you get from their $8 Lunch speical v.s. the rather pricey (but really good) entrees.
Since everything sound exotic so we tried a sampler plate Assorted Cold Appetizers $14 Taslikent, saute, cabbage salad, chicken roulette. Everything is very tasty, light yet flavorful. I especially like chicken roulette (the pate thing I assume). Even though 7 of us share this, we still had half a plate left to take home.
Two people at our table got their $7.95 Lunch specials. The nonstop and huge portion of 'courses' had everyone astounded. First it started with 1. Bread and Spread, then followed with:
2. Soup of the Day - Vegetable soup I notice they used a lot of dill for their flavors. 3. Salad Combo.
4. Samsa with Potato and 5. Liver Kebob. Not in picture but it comes with 6. Vanilla ice-cream at the end too. All these for only $7.95~ Yes these are all for one person only
I got the same thing Joan got last time, it's the cold appertizer Blini with Caviar and Cured Salmon $16 Too good, too good~~
The Entrees are definitely on the pricey side (almost all are over $20) but they all sound so delicious.
One person from our group got the Oxtail Stew $24. There's a burner underneath to keep the stew cooking while served. It's so tender and melty, absolutely delicious~
Karsky Kabob $28 - lamb chops on a skewer is amazing. Beef Strogonoff $24 - slices of filet mignon and mushrooms over fries. Very creamy and rich. Everything is so good here.
One surprisingly note: the plate presentations of some of the entrees are surprisingly 'highend' looking. There're still so many things on menu to try here.

Yeah seems like it's the same menu for dinner and lunch. The portion is definitely dinner size.

The Oxtail Stew and Beef Strogonoff look good! You get so much vegetables too.
Maybe if you are ordering the entrees, you should go for dinner? $24 is not bad for a dinner entree.
