Comfort food

It was late and we were hungry. Not wanting to venture far from home, we went to Uzbekistan. Erik had the most amazing beef noodle soup ever, served in a tureen, and I had potato dumplings with tomato vegetable sauce. The bread they gave us was crusty and hot out of the oven, and came accompanied with herbed cream cheese. And when they brought us the bill, the handsome waiter presented it to Erik with a “This is for you,” before placing a complimentary bowl of vanilla ice cream in front of me and adding, “And this is for you.” When we left, they told us to come again.

Uzbekistan wins a place in the new little black book I am compiling of LA restaurants.

Margaret, if you are reading this, let me know the next time you are free and we will go to Uzbekistan together!
