Featuring some ambiguously-Russian themed fare, USSR Restaurant may not be the most popular restaurant along Perdana Quay but it is surprisingly good. After a few days of local cuisine, seafood and Western fare of the pizza and pasta-kind in Langkawi, USSR Restaurant is actually a good way to break out of the rut. While Russian cuisine is a rare delicacy in many parts of Malaysia, be a little adventurous and try the Zakuson – a salmon salad platter or the Kaurdak – a lamb dish. With a red-themed interior and USSR flags and pictures adorning the walls, USSR Restaurant’s overall atmosphere is friendly and casual.
