Street Vendors Tips (7)

Ice cream vendors - Creme Brulee

During summer time, you can hardly miss the ice cream vendors of St. Petersburg. They usually offer both prepacked ice lollies as well as simple cones with one scoop of a certain flavour.

One of the most popular and even typical flavours in Russia seems to be Creme Brulee (Russian: krem-brule). A cone with one scoop of Creme Brulee cost between 25 and 30 Rubles (0,80 Euro, 2005).

Directions:
You find the ice cream vendors all over St. Petersburg, especially near the tourist sights, but also in department stores or in the underground.

Street vendors: Ice Cream

Another great thing to grab when you're on the go are ice cream cones. You can pick one up from a vendor on just about any street corner and they only cost about 50 cents. They're a viable meal subsitute in my book!

Marko: Casual eating

Marko is another chain that can be found around St. Petersburg. It's a casual, family-friendly sort of place. My friend told me she used to go there a lot with her parents. This is a picture of the restaurant's mascot.

Favorite Dish Salads are good.

Beer in the park

In just about every park in St. Petersburg, there are these little refreshment stands that people can get a sandwich, soda, beer, chips, whatever. Val and I are pictured here enjoying a brewski after spending the afternoon walking around the Summer Gardens. What a pleasant experience!

Favorite Dish I really liked Balitka beer!

Convenient Kiosks

These kiosks are located on almost every corner in downtown St. Petersburg. Most are open 24 hours a day and they sell everything from snacks to toiletries. There were no rules about having open adult beverages when walking around St. Petersburg, which just killed me! You'd see people in the parks, on the streets, and in the subways sucking down a drink at any time of the day or night! It's an alcoholic's paradise! My friend Val and I would usually stop at one of these kiosks for a cool one when we set out for a night of walking around town. It was really relaxing to be able to soak up all the beauty the city had to offer while sipping a cocktail!
