Shashlik in St. Petersburg

Uzbek Restaurant St. Petersburg is part of the Quest Around the Globe Trip Report.

Do you recall when TPOL lived in Mongolia? The work situation wasn’t ideal but the food situation was. One of my favorite restaurants was an Uzbek restaurant located at the ground floor of a condemned building. Day and night they would make shashlik on a BBQ that was on its last leg.

Looking to relive the glory days of good eating, I went to Baklajhan, an Uzbek restaurant in St. Petersburg. For a taste of Mongolian home, I ordered shashlik and a bottle of Georgian wine. No longer on a poor man’s budget, I sampled other dishes as well. The food was great as was the atmosphere.

If you’re not in the mood for Uzbek cuisine, there are always alternatives.
