Restaurants and cafes in Moscow

One of the most important elements when considering the destination of your journey, but the most important, and we always make great expectations, no matter the place we go is the food.

Why it’s so important to know as many dining options available and choose those that best seem to us to eat and visit.

There are mainly two types of restaurants: the renowned, luxurious, with a luxury charter will guarantee a delicious meal and great service; and are the cheapest restaurants that better engage our pocket.

We must remember that the low price of a restaurant does not imply that the food is of poor quality or service is bad, but flaunt it less ostentatious and often the popularity of the place is directly reflected in the price.

A restaurant of the first type is the Expedítsiya, located in the alley Pevchesky, which specializes in own food in northern Russia.

You do not eat cheap but you are guaranteed that the ingredients are brought from Kamchatka, a remote region which already talking on our items.

With a menu full of Siberian dishes, this is an option that can not be overlooked.

Another restaurant you can not miss is the Café Pushkin, on Tverskoy Boulevard.

Specializing in the Russian dishes, this place not only offers a good quality restaurant but also a bakery and a bookstore so take a meal here could be considered a tourist spot on your agenda.

If you can not afford to spend much on food and walk in search of the cheapest options that Moscow has to offer, then there are several options to reduce costs without sacrificing quality or taste of the food.

First we have Mu-Mu, a chain of buffet restaurants offering traditional Russian dishes.

The good thing about this place is that each plate of food has a sign in English explaining what is so you know what you’re eating, a problem you can find in other restaurants.
