Lovers of laksa are in luck: Daikon, the sushi and noodle house with Moscow's best range of Indonesian dishes, has just opened its second eatery. In the former location of Plazh Cafe, the new noodle shop is smaller than the original on Prospekt Mira, with no open kitchen and seating for about 60 people. The menu, however, is the same, as is the 24-hour service.
