Olga, the young Russian owner, speaks both Mandarin and Russian. Growing up in Uzbekistan, she followed her Taiwanese husband to Taichung and now makes home-style dishes from her home country for local diners. To make her Taiwanese customers more aware of where her distant home country is, Olga has labeled her menus with a detailed map of Russia and Uzbekistan.

Many Russian dishes are prepared with naturally-flavored potatoes and onions, while food from Uzbekistan has some similarities to Middle Eastern and Southwest Asian cuisine, using a lot of spices, especially cumin. There are six set meal choices here, all coming with Olive Shurpa, Russian Salad, fries, dessert and a drink.


Oh My God Russian Restaurant Russian Dumplings (NT$100)-These dumplings are stuffed with ground pork, diced mushrooms, salt and pepper. Drizzled with garlic-flavored mayonnaise, the delicious ground pork is flavorful with a black-pepper fragrance.
Oh My God Russian Restaurant Uzbekistan Lamb Pilaf (NT$150/small, NT$250/large)-The Lamb Pilaf is only available during festivities and is cooked with rice, chick peas, carrots, diced and sliced lamb and plenty of cumin for two hours. A perfect combination of rice, lamb and cumin creates a delicious set meal that includes salad, soup, fries, dessert and drink.
Oh My God Russian Restaurant Olive Shurpa (NT$80)-This refreshing, sweet-and-sour olive soup is cooked with tomatoes, sausages, onions, pickles and black olives.
Oh My God Russian Restaurant Russian Salad (NT$80), Uzbekistan Salad (NT$40)-Potatoes, carrots, hard-boiled eggs and pickles make the Russian Salad especially refreshing. Delicately cut, paper-thin onion slices with tomatoes are part of an Uzbekistan home-style
salad.
Oh My God Russian Restaurant Kebab of Minced Meat (NT$110)-Minced pork is marinated with spices and onion slices, with the acidity of the fermented onions accenting the appetizing pork aromas in this boldly-flavored Russian dish.
Oh My God Russian Restaurant Traditional Russian Baked Eggs with Ground Pork (NT$90)-Ground pork is mixed with diced onions, cumin and salt to taste, stuffed with a perfectly hard-boiled egg, wrapped in foil and baked. The outside is meaty and crispy with onion dices while the inside has a fluffy egg yolk.
