Yesterday we had a friend visiting from Sweden. He wanted to try a russian restaurant that was recommended to him.It is really close to were we live so with a short stop in the biergarten we walked there.
I had the potato cakes with smoked salmon, horseradish and quark with herbs. The others ate sort of russian ravioli with three different stuffings; feta cheese, spinach/potato and chicken. For dessert we had the blini with almond curd and warm cherries.
We didn’t have the vodka, perhaps a mistake…But we did try the russian beer, Moskwa.
The restaurant, Pasternak, is situated in a very nice area in Berlin called Prenzlauer Berg. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with reasonable prices. The staff speaks a little english and they have their menus in several different languages.
The neighbour is also russian, a bar named Gagarin.
