Eating in Russia

We’re overnighting in the city of Perm and tomorrow will continue our journey east towards Siberia and Mongolia. For those of you who think that eating in Russia consists of lots of Borsch and potatoes, here is what we ate for dinner this evening.

We visited the Pasternak restaurant, located across the road from our hotel. Service was excellent with a waiter who spoke English. The menu was provided on iPads and included photos of each dish along with English descriptions.

Oh, we started out with a pint of Abbot Ale each to start, and then shared a bottle of Argentinian Malbec. Altogether, a very pleasant dinner!
