This is undoubtedly the best-known restaurant in the neighborhood; to the point that even those that are not necessarily fans of Uzbek or Russian cuisine know about Fortune. With a bakery and café on the first floor and a full restaurant on the second, Fortune has been the go-to place for many a fan of shashlyk (Russian-style skewered meat). In Russia, this garlic, black pepper, oregano and sea salt meat and vegetable dish is often cooked outdoors over an open fire and served during the summer—giving a slightly charcoal feeling to the meat. However, if you aren’t a fan of skewers, the extensive menu leaves you with plenty of options from potato dishes to soups and salads. The borscht (a beet soup of Ukrainian origin) here comes served with a side of sour cream, which is the perfect addition to this dish.
