Not only did we find chocolate, souvenirs and a very famous bakery, but Russian restaurants too. Interestingly some of the locals speak Russian.
Beef stew was delicious. Pot was actually made of iron which kept the food warm for a long time. We saw it on the table next to us and asked the Chinese tourists what it was. We couldn’t understand and they kindly pointed it our for us on the menu: ‘Cattle pot’.
We also ordered Russian sausage, mash potatoes and bread. It was our first time in a Russian restaurant since 2010. It was exactly what we needed in terms of comfort food.
A great place to escape from the cold and it felt a bit like someone’s living room.
