As­tana Restau­rant

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Eating Out -

Sri Pe­tal­ing is the last place you’d ex­pect to find a restau­rant serv­ing an ar­ray of au­then­tic Russian and Cen­tral Asian dishes. Both lo­cals and for­eign­ers in the know fre­quent the restau­rant; and the cosy in­te­rior pro­vides a com­fort­able set­ting for a fam­ily din­ner. The menu is filled with re­gional clas­sics like besh­bar­mak (a gen­er­ous sam­pler of boiled noo­dles and cut meats), plov (Uzbek’s rice pi­laf) and

shash­lik (grilled skew­ered meat), and the friendly wait staff will be more than happy to rec­om­mend and ex­plain the dishes to first-timers.

While there’s no spe­cific kids’ menu per se, they can opt for the manty dumplings and kho­nym (steamed pasta roll with meat and pota­toes). As­tana also serves a va­ri­ety of tra­di­tional desserts that will sat­isfy any sweet tooth. Ad­ven­tur­ous par­ents can go for the meat plat­ter com­pris­ing beef, cow’s tongue and kazy (cold cuts made from horse­meat) – truly global din­ing in­deed.
