I rarely like to head into the heart of Kuala Lumpur during rush hour but when I got the invite for the launch of Vladimir’s Place which is an authentic Russian restaurant, my curiosity got the better of me and so I headed down to KL on 11 June 2015 to see what Russian food was like.
Vladimir’s Place is a new Russian restaurant and bar, which has taken up one of the old bungalow lots along Jalan Inai, and is that the owner claims is the first true Russian restaurant in downtown Klang Valley. Vladimir’s Place is headed by Chef Vladimir’s Anuchin and Dmytro Koba, both hailing from Russia, and have many years of culinary experience in the United States.
The restaurant is pretty spacious, approximately 7,000 square feet, and seats 70 guests comfortably. There is the main dining area and the bar area which both share the same Russian decor which is somewhat reminiscent of what I saw in movies depicting the era of the Tsars.
The menu features some classic Russian dishes which includes Borsh with Sour Cream, Oliver with Chicken, Salmon Steak, Grilled Sea Bass with Vegetables and famous Dumpling with Sweet Cheery and Sour Cream Dessert. Unfortunately we didn’t get to sample the dishes as we were served canapes during the event but if the quality of the canapes reflects that of the food then I think the food should be pretty good.
Might head back sometime soon for a full review of their food so stay tuned.
