Carl's Junior Russia: Carl's Junior Russia

The California fire grilled burger joint is in St. Petersburg. It opened it's first two restaurants in Russia in St. Petersburg in 2006 with plans to add 50 more over 8 years.

When you walk inthe door you get the same beef burger grill smell as in USA and the fare is almost the same, with a slightly reduced menu.

And it is one of the only places you can find self-refill drinks. Almost all restaurants in Russia including McDonalds, Pizza Hut, KFC Rostik's and Subway charge for refills.

Favorite Dish Grilled chicken sandwich 120 rubles = $5
About twice the price of McDonald's sandwich in Russia

Free soda drink refills!!!

Pizza Hut: American Pizza Huts in Russia

One of the better Pizza places are the Pizza Huts. They are the American franchise made with local ingredients.

You can usually get an english language newspaper, the St. Petersburg Times there. It's free.

It is a bit more expensive than other pizza from Cafes, but less than some touristy spots trying to be trendy with pizza. So many cafes offer pizza now, it may become Russian cuisine soon!

Favorite Dish Try Slavanskaya or supreme pizza

Subway: Subway, American with a twist

The Subway chain of fast foods is spreading in Russia.

It is about the same as American sandwiches with a few twists.
Instead of iceberg lettuce they use cabbage.
Also, they do not have yellow mustard. Some hot mustard or honey mustard is available.

Favorite Dish Tuna sandwich without the "cabbage" lettuce

McDonalds: McDonalds

The only reason I took this picture is because I thought this was a very interesting building for McDonalds. We didn't go inside because it was too busy.
