they dont have food in russia, let alone celery

i remember a interview years ago when 1 of the players said dimitri kharine keeps nicking all the left over biscuits etc and sending them home in a food parcel

I think that may have been a joke.

But.......If you like smoked lard - Russia is the place for you icon_wink.gif

English people making fun of other countries' cuisine? Oh my... icon_lol.gif

And what wrong with a good old british fry up????

Nothing much, but it's not like the traditional English cuisine is known for its exciting flavours, now is it? I mean, fish and chips? icon_lol.gif

I'm not an expert on Russian cuisine and having never been to Moscow, I couldn't say for sure what you should expect to get at or near the Red Square. I reckon traditional Russian food might not be very easy to find near places like the Red Square, but I could be wrong. Usually in big cities the sites that attract a lot of tourists tend to be populated by "the golden arches" and other multinational fast food restaurants instead of restaurants that offer the more traditional local cuisine.

But about the Russian cuisine...various soups are likely to be available. I've always liked fish solyanka. I reckon that English might like the pirozhki pies as they're somewhat similiar to the pies you have in England. Pelmeni's are something I've quite enjoyed, but it depends on the fillings and seasoning. Blintzes are something you're likely to find if you go looking for Russian cuisine and I recommend you give them a chance. I've always liked them whenever I've tried them.

But like I said, I'm not an expert on Russian cuisine, so try this link for some information:

It's not all peasoups and borscht, you know. 247.gif

You gave the world 'The Rasmus' and want to slander English cuisine!

I'm sorry, I fail to see the connection, unless you're suggesting they're both bland? 247.gif

Not a fan of their music, but rather Rasmus than McFly! icon_wink.gif

You're joking, right? I mean, what's the point of travelling there(other than seeing the final ofcourse) if you're gonna be eating at the Golden Arches? 300.gif

i agree

but for people travelling on a budget it may be useful to know

vareniky (minced meat in a savoury pastry) and strogonoff is what i'd be trying if i was going

Good point, although there are other options for those that are travelling on a budget:

"...three-course dinner will be about $10 per person..." (Mu-Mu Cafe)

About £5 for a three course meal doesn't sound too expensive. icon_wink.gif

Oi! What is wrong with Pea Soup? The Dutch version, with "rookworst" and "roggebrood" of course, is delicious! One plate of that will keep you going for at least 24 hours.

Absolutely nothing. I haven't tasted the Dutch version, though.

And to add to my post above, here's a bit of info about fast food in Moscow(from the same site as the earlier link)

http://www.waytorussia.net/Moscow/EatFast.html

I see absolutely no point in going to eat at KFC or McDonalds or something like that over there, unless ofcourse you're afraid of trying something new.
