Brand spanking new in BKK .. let's check it out!

Alesha Voronin never thought he’d be a chef. He was born in the small town of Salekhard in Russia located right in the Polar circle. Though he started cooking at the early age of 3 and farming at 5, he eventually grew to study drama and continues to have a passion for the cinematic arts.

He discovered Thailand while touring Southeast Asia on a motorcycle and fell in love with Bangkok and decided to stay. An unsuccessful visa run left him stranded in Cambodia, and ultimately working in the kitchen at a resort in Ko Kong. He quickly discovered that this was his calling.

If your appetite is light I highly recommend the Zakusky Set Protected content . It comes with a nice sample of pickled mushrooms and tomatoes. But the real treat here is the smolets. Smolets is best described as a Russian pâté. It’s made with roasted pork belly that’s blended with caramelized onion and apple with cream into a thick paste. It literally melts in your mouth.

A dollop of this on rye bread with mustard and grated horseradish is a real treat! Going heavy on the mustard and horseradish is also a shortcut to curing any sinus ailments.
There’s only one soup on the menu and it just so happens to be one of my favorites, Borscht on the menu as A Tale of Beets Protected content . This soup makes me wish it were snowing. It’s pure nostalgia evoking bliss. What I like about it most is that you can actually taste the different veggies in it as opposed to other borscht experiences I’ve had where they lean on the salt pretty heavy. (experienced Borcht taster)

A simple soup of pork stock, beets and potatoes, if you’re a fan of borscht, I highly recommend you order this. (i sure will)

Returning to Bangkok he opened a simple restaurant called Pizza Bar BKK which became quite popular. But as the popularity grew so did the rent. Wanting to focus on Russian cuisine, and needing an affordable change of scene, he opened Protected content in January, Protected content .

As they say in Russian .... Nasdarovey!!
