Red Square and the Moscow Kremlin
"Red Square: The square's name has nothing to do with communism or with the color of many of its buildings. In fact it derives from the word 'krasnyi' which once meant 'beautiful' and has only come to mean 'red' in contemporary Russian. Red Square began life as a slum a shanty town of wooden huts clustered beneath the Kremlin walls that housed a collection of peddlers criminals and drunks whose status left them outside the official boundaries of the medieval city. The varied beauty of the architecture and the magical atmosphere belie the square's often brutal and bloody history but the combination makes Red Square a truly fascinating place that you'll want to come back to again and again. St.Basil’s Cathedral: Every capital has a well-known landmark making it easily recognizable. In Moscow the Cathedral of the Protecting Veil of the Mother of God

Moo-Moo chain Tips (13)

Mu-Mu: Mu-Mu is a must!

For the second time , Mu-mu chain is my choice in Moscow,
Lots of reasons to go there , but the main one is to be able to see and choose your food and taste typical russian coisine.
The atmosphere is very cozy : restaurant is decorated as a rustic farm , with the wooden tables.
You go to the line and order what you want : dont miss soups ,especially borsh. I always had salads , fish (good option for vegetarians)
Price is very low - a borsh soup for example costed 92 rublos .
I went to 4 mu-mu : At the underground Shopping Okhotne riad near Red Square , Klimentov street ,Fruzenskaya square ( the first one and the biggest I´ve seen) , Domodedovo airport (prices 40% higher)

Moo Moo: Local cusine

You will recognize Moo-Moo restaurant (Russian: Му му) by its black-and-white Holstein-print decor and big cow-statue in front of. This is cafeteria-style service and is a good way to taste Russian food.
Our tour guide recommended this food change as good and inexpensive. The entire menu is self-service.
To compare: tee in Kitaj gorod is worth as reach soup in Moo Moo restaurant (69 R.ruble).

Russian chains: Moo-Moo at Frunzenskaya

Moo-Moo is my favourite fast-food chain in Moscow, because it is not really fast-food.

The service is fast indeed, but not the food: no sandwiches, no cakes baked and frozen miles away and brought back to life in a microwave, everything natural as natural can be in a big city like Moscow. It rather reminds me of an old times’ personnel canteen: they offer a decent three-course lunch, plus salads, all made right there.
Speaking about salads – I normally wouldn’t recommend them for safety reasons, but here I have tried quite a few, and I am still basically in life.

Moo-Moo has now got a license for alcohol, they serve table wine and beer. More moderate clientele will be happy with fresh-made juices, tea and coffee.
Desserts, to be honest, are not Moo-Moo’s strong point, they look and taste very fast-food-like!
That said, it’s not really the food that makes Moo-Moo a good place to have a break on a busy day; not even the budget pricing. It’s the quiet no-nonsense air – you get what you have paid for, and you don’t owe anybody anything.

P.S. They used to have an English-language site, but now it has gone :(
The holding that owns Moo-Moo has quite a few other assets in their possession, the posh ‘Café Pushkin’ among them (see my other tip)
P.P.S. Year 2015
Russian food is being sold really cheap:
Baked fish, tartar sauce + '3 bean' salad + countrystyle rye bread + fresh pressed carrot juice + green tea (tea pot) = 595 rubles, less than 10 euro

Favorite Dish For my part, the main attraction is the soup – not the least because very few budget chains serve any. My favourite is ‘home-made’ chicken noodles soup – it does taste like home. For more sophisticated palates they have cheese crème-soup with crams.

The latest venture is a pizza stand: you order one, pay at the cashier’s, go to your table with a wooden flag (they like wood there). In a few minutes your pizza arrives.

Moo-Moo: Not so hot!

While McDonalds is on the way out (I guess the authorities still hesitate, but another oil-cheapening trick may decide the fate of this Pax Americana symbol), it doesn’t do any good to its local competitor Moo-Moo.

With our office canteen temporarily closed again, been to Moo-Moo at Frunzenskaya – the second course downright cold, and so is the soup. Do they think it’s still summer, or what?
That one, mind you, is their flagship restaurant, the first and the biggest so far. What to expect at other places?

The bill, compared to the median income, is no trifle either:
Chicken noodle soup – 75
Neat's tongue, 80 g – 218
Potatoes with mushrooms – 95
Milk jelly – 82
Apple patty - 35
Disinfection serviette – 5
Total: 510 rubles (about 10 euro, or 13 USD at current rate)

Moo-Moo at Frunzenskaya: Moo-Moo Controversy

As everyone knows, there’s no such crime capitalism will shrink from with the view of 200% profit.
You will immediately notice that the personnel in this Russian catering doesn’t look exactly Russian – their labour comes cheaper.
Another issue is the name.
You folks won’t find anything unusual in having a Dalmatian-pecked cow called Moo-Moo. But anyone who had been to a secondary school in Russia knows that it’s a dog! And the name is Mumu (see 19th century writer Ivan Turgenev’s story). There’s no Hollywood happy-end there either, the poor puppy got drowned.
Real life is not much better. There used to be a “Café Mumu” in St.Petersburg, with the dog’s figurine at the door, devoted clientele and all that.
Then this mega-chain comes from Moscow, and the respected small business had to pull down the name or face legal charges, although they were the first on the market! Dog’s life, anyway.

Cafe Mu Mu

Mu Mu (Cyrillic spelling: My My) is a Russian chain of cafeteria style restaurants. They have several branches in Moscow. I once visited the place at the street ul. Arbat, which is probably one of the most popular locations.

Outside of the restaurant is a large bilingual Russian English menu next to a life size cow. The menu lists all sorts of Russian and Estern European dishes.

Once inside you have to take a tray and order and pay the food at the counter. Then you can sit down at one of the dark wooden tables in the two-storey restaurant. Before you order your food it is recommended to check if there are enough free tables available.

Café Mu Mu is a great place to try a few traditional specialities like the beetroot soup Borscht, several shashliks or pelmeni.

Depending on what you order a full meal will set you back about 300 to 400 Rubles (less than 10 Euro, 2009).

The Café Mu Mu which I visited can be found almost in the middle of the pedestrianised street ul. Arbat. The nearest metro stops are "Arbatskaya" and "Smolenskaya" on the blue line.

Address: Cafe Mu Mu, ul. Arbat 45/24, Moscow

Moo-Moo chain: Follow the cow to Moo-Moo

Moo-Moo is a budget-friendly, cafeteria-style restaurant with a rather large selection of Russian dishes. There may be menus in English at the entrance, but if you don't speak Russian, you will likely have to point out what you want once it is your turn to order because the staff's English is generally limited. However, don't let that, or the length of the queues (they move fast), deter you from trying out this friendly place.

We liked Moo-Moo's food and atmosphere so much, we ate there twice (although at two different locations) during our stay in Moscow. However, as we travelled outside of Moscow during the following weeks, we realized how sweet the drinks were at Moo-Moo. Both the kompots and kissels we tried later on seemed quite bitter in comparison -- though they were probably closer to the real thing. Therefore, those who don't have a sweet tooth should stay away from the syrupy Moo-Moo concoctions.

Moo-Moo is open every day from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Moo-Moo chain: My-My - a canteen with restaurant meals

I do not know why Moo-Moo chain was awarded at VT with a separate "cuisine" locator.

Actually this is a kind of fast-food chain, better to say self-service restaurant, as meals are of restautant quality. Cuisine is mainly local (Russian), but there are so many choises that it could be call "Eclectic/International" either.

Favorite Dish - Chicken with Pineapple salad - this is more Indian style, with carry.
- big choise of barbeque things - very good

Russian Cuisine: Restaurant in honour of Turgenev

The restaurant's name is "Mu-mu". Just to explain : Mu-mu is the novel written by Russian famous writer Ivan Turgenev. Mu-mu is a dog who's lord was deam&deaf and hence couldn't call the dog by any other name.
The cuisine is typical Russian local (soup, pelmeni, many salads, etc). But chairs are painted white with black spots, so my friend from Moscow supposed that perhaps Mu-mu was a Dalmatian :)

Favorite Dish I generally like pelmeni and salads, so let's say it was my favourite.

Moo-Moo (My My): Dig the cow decor

For a great, inexpensive Russian meal, hop into the ever present line at Moo-Moo. The restaurant is cafeteria style so you can view the food before you order it, there is an English menu on the wall and many of the servers spoke English.

For around $10 (300 roubles), the two of us were able to eat quite well

Favorite Dish The meat filled pancakes were awesome, my husband enjoyed the borscht, the pelmeni were good.
