After quitting the eastern bloc of Phra Khanong, Bangkok’s only fully dedicated Russian restaurant has opened a new front across town in a trendy soi.
Chef Alesha Voronin has picked up where he left off, serving homespun classics from lamb-and-pork pelmeni dumplings and beetroot soup borscht to bite-sized pancakes with salmon caviar and “Drunken Sausage” – rustic pork sausage cured with brandy and served with pickles and mashed potatoes. In addition to dining-in, the venue currently also serves high-quality artisan products such as kefir, kombucha and some Russian tapas.
The Moon Under Water is open noon to 9pm (as per current government diktat), Wednesday through Sunday. It’s located in a small lane just off Soi Suan Phlu, a short ride from BTS Chong Nonsi or MRT Lumphini.
