Trainrestaurant/ Markets on the Stations
It was no problem at all to eat in the train's restaurant, but there was always plenty of very nice food, that I could buy, when the train stopped.
Favorite Dish: Specially I remember the cheese-cake, which I ate in Siberia, after 18 months in Asia. Delicious!Related to:

Cheap cafes: Avoid tourist joints
In big cities try to avoid restaurant near touristic spots because the food is bland like everywhere else x-cept high end retaurant. Find yourself a good ol'russian cafe or Stolovaya (canteen), and you should have a reasonably good meal for about 3$ with a beer.
Favorite Dish: The classics:
-Pilmeny (boiled meat dumplings served with sour cream) dirt cheap
-salianka (meat and vegetable soup, very filling cheap and delicious)
-Chieburek (deep fried meet pouch)Related to:

Favorite Dish: Russia, famous for its caviar.
It's cheaper to buy here but you can't export it.
So, for those who love it, remember to bring more US$ ;-)
I didn't get to eat them in restaurants, as u know tour groups are never crazy enough to serve you caviar!
Anyhow, you can get them in some of the bigger "tourist" stores.
Don't miss the opportunity for unusual ethnic food
Russia may be the only "easily accessable place where one can try such a wide range of hard to get Central Asian and Cuacasian food. Try something at an Uzbek resteraunt, or maybe an Azerbaihajani or Moldovian place. You won't be disappointed, and you may not have the opportunity elsewhere....
Dont ask I just know where it is: Best desserts
This place is appealing to the eyes as well as the stomach. the counter is three tiered 20 foot long, the coffee is excellent too.
Favorite Dish: All of them go there and you will see.well taste They charge by the kilo not the pieceRelated to:

The Best one in Voronezh: Gulliver
The Gulliver Restaurant is in my opinion one your best choices when you’re in Voronezh…
Delicious food …
And of course real good price…
The funny thing is that there’s a guy who works as Gulliver… he only meet’s you when you’re about to enter the Restaurant… and he could agree to let you have a photo with him…
What makes him so special..?
He is the tallest man in Voronezh!!!
2,5 meters …!!!
His role is very suitable as Gulliver…
When you don’t catch him “it could be”
Ask any waitress : “where is Mr. Gulliver?”
She will –in a witty way- answer : “he is traveling”
Favorite Dish: Favorite food… Hmmmm… truly all of them
But you can order “Cordon Blue” it’s delicious !!!
Around train and metro stations, parks and markets, there are some street-side stalls serving snacks, pies, baked potates and my favourite : SHARWMA, meat kebab wrapped in piece of crepe.
After a while, I subsisted mainly on sharwmas as they are cheap, filling, hot, fresh, delicious, have a smattering of vegetables (some lettuce, onions and tomatoes) and are served by HANDSOME FRIENDLY men of perhaps Turkish origins.
LAKE BAIKAL : SMOKED FISH
A popular snack around Lake Baikal is the smoked fish.
They are smelly but taste really good. The fish is usually wrapped in newspapers. On some train-stops, vendors can be seen holding out a 'bouquet' of newspapers with smoked fish clasped inside.
I was pleasantly surprised to have a shot of complimentary vodka served together with my order of lunch at Cafe Idiot in St. Petersburg.
They charged me for the bread but not for the vodka. This probably does not happen to every cafe and restaurant in Russia but you know you are in Russia when they serve you complimentary vodka.
If you have Roubles to burn, you will have no problems with food in Russia. If you want to find cheap and good food, it may be a problem.
Many cafes (cheaper than restaurants) have a display of unappetising and small portions of food. God knows how long the food has been sitting there. Take your pick. They microwave the stale food and plonk it in front of you. Good luck.
The Kremlin: Kill it and grill it!
The food in Russia is great. I ate at outdoor grills at the vdnkh, The Pushkin, The Kremlin, lots of places and can honestly say I never had a bad meal.
Russians like everything fresh and I was a lttle puzzled by people who missed "American food". Still it was horosho to go to the diner and have a burger and shake.Related to:

On the road...: Meat on the spit
All my pics at original size:
To me the best thing I eat in Siberia, cheap and very good meat cooked on embers! Beware of trust and weigh on balance the meat before cooking it.
Plenty of choices in Moscow
Ranging from McDonald's to high end expensive places. From locals to Internatioanal restaurants. There are so many choices. Some are not as good as we thought though. But if we can spend just a few days there our choice is go find a place selling Shashlick, whether it's in a good restaurant or just roadside Barbecue stall. It usually tastes good.
?: Try Georgian food
Unfortunately, I have no idea what the name of the Georgian restaurant we went to was. It was wonderful, however, and included a Bazooki band! Food was great - beer was great - subway trip there was exciting. I thought the Bazooki band was pretty unique - reminded me of Monty Python's cheese shop sketch! It seems to me they may have played the birthday song - it was my birthday around then!
Favorite Dish: The food was more or less like many small plates of appetizer-like dishes. Our resident Russian-speaker, who had taken us there, had also arranged that we would receive the appropriate food.
Platinum is just a sidewalk cafe just off from the Kremlin. It's a great place to relax and have a beer and watch the young people. Food is good and pretty inexpensive and the waitresses are super cute and friendly.
Favorite Dish: Veal Shashlick
