The Moon under Water

Bangkok is a huge blending pot of various culture and cuisine from all around the world. I had just recently tried Jamaican and Ethiopian food which are so exotic and exciting. I love to try out food from different places just to have a sneak peak before traveling to each country in order to better prepare myself. Russia cuisine has been elusive in Bangkok for a while. I finally rush to try out Russian food as soon as I have acknowledged recently opened in Phrakanong area.

Located on second floor. The ambiance are quite lovely are perfect for spending slow a quiet afternoon.

Prop corner with Russian style hat to try out.

The menu are quite compact with main menu and special menu on Chalk board. I ordered A Taste of beet and Pelmeni with a complimentary Rye bread.

A Taste of Beets – Russian Borscht soup – chicken and pork base soup

Beetroot soup are well-known cuisine among Russian food. The base of soup contains chicken and pork base which plays a huge role in flavor. Beetroot, carrot and potatoes are fresh and provide insanely good vibe for the soup with playful sourness. Perfect appetizing menu!

Rye bread with mustard – Amazing texture and perfect with Beetroot soup
Pelmeni – Hand knead dumplings with Pork & Beef

Boiled dumplings usually contains thicker skins in order to prevent dumplings from popping in boiling process. The thickness of this dumplings are appropriate with juicy flavorful fillings.

Soup curry is a type of Hokkaido curry soup and often served with variety of vegetables along side with toppings such as chicken leg, hamburg, sausage etc. The place claimed that they are the only restaurant in Bangkok that serve Soup curry which means they must be the best in Bangkok since there’s no other competitor lol (Atleast at the time I’m writing this review)

Ordering process is quite straightforward. Choosing menu, soup, spicy level, rice and add topping as you wish. The owner are from Eniwa, Hokakido which is an area close to Sapporo which means I’m getting some authentic experience.

I’ve ordered special soup curry (330 THB) with level 3 spicy level original soup. The aroma of soup curry is quite appetizing.  There are boiled egg, potato, carrot, eggplant, baby corn, lotus root, cabbage, broccoli, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, pumpkin, cabbage and chicken leg. Simply putting, they just throw nearly vegetables in the topping section into the bowl for and awesome healthy meal.

Level 3 soup spiciness didn’t bring enough heat for me. Still the soup is well-seasoned and every vegetables are so fresh which reminds me of high quality Hokkaido locally available products.  The chicken is also tender and paired well with the soup.

They also provide vegan soup curry which I think it’s worth trying for Vegan since all the vegetables are delicious by themselves.
