Elza Fancy Food
New York, NY 11235
Village Voice's Description
This Brighton Beach miracle isn't much to look at, but it offers a fascinating and entirely obscure cuisine at bargain prices: the cooking of Korean expatriates to Central Asia, who have been arriving, first in a trickle, later in droves since the first decade of the 20th century. On your plate at Elza Fancy Food you'll find standard Uzbek dishes like manti dumplings and lagman soup, but Korean-inspired potages are more unusual, including one called yug-gyadya, which you basically construct via a series of little bowls as it sits steaming in front of you. Another favorite is mash hurdy, which is a minute steak wrapped in a mayo-smeared omelet. Gut-bomb time! Georgian standard chicken tabaka is also particularly dope.

"У Тещи" (At Your Mother-in-Law’s).
As sketchy as it may seem, the food was some of the best Russian/Korean cuisine I have ever had. The prices were fair and the service was great. I felt like I was eating at my great grandma's house.
Awesome Uzbek food and Asian fusion in general. Must try when in Little Odessa.
