There are not many restaurants and cafes in Russia where you can try true Russian cuisine. Nowadays Russian food is a mixture of cuisine from neighbouring countries and former Soviet republics: such as Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine and Central Asian countries. You can try pancakes and pies with different fillings, delicous khachapuri (traditional Georgian pie with home made cheese suluguni), caucas kebabs, Uzbekistani plov (rice dish with meat and vegetables) and soups (traditional Russian schi with solty cabbage or Ukrainian borsch with beetroot). Your leader will arrange group dinners in different places to get the most out of this gastronomic mix throughout your journey. Restaurant Chekhov in St. Petersburg and Cafe Chekhov in Moscow can be considered as places where you can try real Russian cuisine (fish soups, solty black milk mushrooms, aspics, poultry, jellies). Vegatarians are well catered for in Moscow and St. Petersburg but less so outside of these main cities. Meals are generally good value and you can expect to pay GBP10-15 pp.
