Beet Salad at Kench Cafe, Karakol

The large Russian population in Karakol (Kyrgyzstan) is responsible for the many Russian dishes that appear on the menus around town. For dinner last night we tried a notable beet and corn salad, a popular Russian dish found all over Central Asia.  The cooked beets were sliced lengthwise into one inch strips, and were mixed together with corn and a somewhat garlicky mayonnaise dressing. We thought the Mayo was a little overdone, we would have gone leaner on the dressing. Starving after a full day on the road, we ate it all...
