Russian Meal

Lana and group

My Russian friend, Lana works as public relation manager at Focus travel. She's going to Moscow for 2 weeks for a business trip which was a good excuse for a meal to catch up with a few friends. The Russian food was a bit different to anything I've had before. Some of my friends said that it was a bit rich like French food. I like trying new food and giving you guys some feed back.

Russian restaurant

Sorry, I can't really remember exactly what we ate and the food might be good for Russians but my friends and I didn't enjoy it that much. It was also quite expensive when we thought about the size of the portions, the presentation and the atmosphere of an empty restaurant. The service was poor because the staff couldn't remember the names of the dishes and they bought the starters after the main courses. The wine and beer was not cold at all and we had to wait for almost half an hour for the wine to be chilled, and my friends had to drink beer with ice. I want to mention one more time that this is not a cheap restaurant and we were the only people in the big three storey restaurant.

Russian food - dessert

Wrong choice for the meal but we had a good time together.

Russian foods are no where the same as French food. Absolutely not! I'm not trying to be a snob but French food is exquisite. You should go and try it at a real French restaurant.

Russian food is made for Russian people and Russian weather: lots of potatoes, dough, thick sauce, etc.. SO I guess it doesn't translate too well in a hot country like Vietnam.

I ate at a Russian restaurant in Chicago. I had a lamb-stuffed pastry with a carrot salad, and some very dark and delicious bread. It was the cheapest thing on the menu and I also had a shot of vodka (I mean, who wouldn't?!). The lunch was excellent and well worth going over my credit card limit for. I have never again found such a delicious stuffed pastry.

Maybe what I had wasn't really Russian food!

Hi God Knows, I like the restaurant reviews you do on this blog and I hope you do more.

I've linked quite a few from ChefMoz:

I don't know if you've checked out ChefMoz in the past. It's developed a lot in the past 6 months so please take a look anyway.

I hope you could send a link back! ChefMoz needs more folks participating in order to make it better!
