World Fusion @ Samarkand, Charlotte St

My posts on Dishy Delishy seem to be getting less frequent, it’s not that I’m not still munching my way about town, it’s just I’d rather be more selective about what I write about these days. It needs to be special, exciting, pretty and more than anything make people think, damn girl, I need to go there. That is exactly what Samarkand was.

I met Zoe for slightly different Friday dinner. Que trendy Charlotte street and Uzbek cuisine. The dining room was so on trend, my ideal copper haven with this glorious spirt cabinet.

These guys are crazy for cocktails. You have to wait a little longer but they are insane.

We sat and chose a selection of traditional starters. Beef & Lamb Somsa parcels with tomato dip.

Now for the main event. Our chatty server encouraged the plov, a recipe which has been around the Uzbek block for generations. Sold.

Huge juicy beef short rib sat on rice and was cooked with carrots, onions and chick peas.

Of course we added sides. More tomatoes and truffle potatoes.

To truly finish us off a chocolate textura plate and baklava cake.

Wonderful eve at Samarkand. Totally different, fancy, tasty and fruity. Lush vibe too.

If not for the food I would defo head to the bar for drinks, people will think you are super cool for finding this underground cave of wonders.
