New Addictions


Tripling down on the Russian options at Pelmeny restaurant on Voznesensky Prospekt. From left to right: Kvass (very tasty), Siberian Pelemeni in butter (even tastier) and borsch (spicy and warming). I may not have the hang of the language yet, but I could survive eating like a Russian quite comfortably…

    tasty, – if only borsch was emailable.

    on another note i remember watching something on tele where Stephen Fry was explaining what he knew about the Cyrillic alphabet and pronunciation etc. It does look very complicated. Especially if you have a mono-language brain like my one. (Although you could argue that our hiberno-english is duo-language)

      After a few weeks, I’ve picked up most of the Cyrillic alphabet – it’s not all that tricky. I wish I’d had a bit more Russian before setting off, but I was pressed for time, and I’m pretty much at the end of the Russian leg of this trip now anyhow.

    I’ve heard that Borsch is the business alright.
