Shades of purple opulence and such comfy armchairs. We found it hard to pull ourselves out of those velvet chairs when we were ready to pay the bill.
Extensive bar and more private curtained seating booths beyond.
Divine strawberry mocktail for the fat pregnant lady (that'd be me!)
Cinnamon and Apple Pie cocktail (absinthe, cinnamon, Zubrowka, butterscotch liqueur, vanilla sugar syrup and apple juice)
Russian Pelmini for starters- boiled dumplings filled with pork and beef and served with garlic and herb butter and fried onions.
Moldavian Lamb Pilaf with pomegranate molasses, grilled eggplant, feta, lemon...so good!
Hungarian Beef Goulash with tender slow braised beef cooked in red wine and served with mash. Hearty and melt in your mouth goodness.
My husband got shat upon by an overhead gecko-couldn't help laughing raucously! (they are everywhere in Queensland, probably not Eastern Europe though!)
Dessert to share because we were so full of our yummy filling mains. Russian Blini filled with vanilla ricotta cheese.
