Upon entering the central gate of the city market you will see this gray building to your right.
It's stolovaya (a canteen) from the good old Soviet times.
This is where you can have a bite during your shopping tour or exploring the market.
They offer a lot of local dishes: cutlets, fried fish, fried chicken legs, meat pancakes, fried beef liver, etc.
The kitchen is right in front of you, so you can see how they cook your fish.
They usually heat your ready made dishes in their microwave oven. You only have to trust them the dishes/the meat/the fish are not outdated...
You can also order drinks here. Their choice is impressive.
Favorite Dish: meat pancakes and vegetable salad with a piece of salted herring: yummy!
This restaurant is a part of Comfort leisure center and is located not far from downtown.

If you feel thirsty during your city tour and want to relax like the locals do, why not make a stopover at a bistro and relax?
There are several bistro all over the city.
They are usually located at big grocer's and offer you different drinks and snacks.
Or you can merely sit at a bar outside a store (such as this one in Lenin Street: Picture #2).
You can buy a snack in the store and then sit outside talking to locals, which would be a treat to them, too...
