It was one of those days where Cuchi wanted to take a walk through the streets of Little India and have a look at some of the night scene over there. While strolling through, she noticed something unique along Dunlop street. Surprise surprise! There is an Uzbek Russian resturant call Zeffir right here! Cute Cute and Cuchi went in and got a namecard and little did they know that after a week, they were back to try the food there.
Excited by the notion of going to an Uzbek restaurant, Cute Cute could not help but recall how he was introduced to Uzbekistan because of Borat... Heh Heh... The interior was very homely and it emitted a very warm feel. Patrick, the owner, also made sure that we were comfortable.
Not really sure what to order, Patrick noted the lions' curiosity and puzzled look and came over to recommend them what to order. After listening, the lions ordered the Borsh, Lagman Zeffir (A noodle dish), homestyle potatoes, Kompote (apple and plum drink) and a Napolean dessert. Initially the Plov (a rice dish) was to be ordered but they were still cooking it and the waiting time was one hour. Darn...
The Kompote came first and it was refreshing, kinda of reminds Cuchi of the san zha drink but a lighter version of it.
