My Cafe

International in Almaty

Yes, this place is self-consciously trendy, with pulsing ambient music, hip young staff and decor comprising giant steel feathers, but the food is imaginative and excellent. The okroshka (cold summer soup) is the best we've ever had, the flavourful lamb burger comes in a charcoal bun and the buckwheat noodles with grilled eel hit the spot.
