Last weekent was my first time to Simple things (Простые вещи) Moscow restaurant. It positions itself as a wine bar or gastropub and that's exactly what it is. You get a good choice of wines and simple crispy fresh French and Italian food to complement it. We enjoyed it a lot. Read more...

We recently made it to Avocado, my favorite Moscow vegetarian restaurant. I haven’t been to the place for some 4 years already. It was nice to find out it is still there quiet and peaceful with the food simple and fresh. Read more...

Since I started working several weeks ago Le Pain Quotidien (Хлеб насущный) bakery has become a place of my almost permanent residence. It is a brilliant international bakery originating from Brussels. Since they opened in Moscow I loved their shops for their beautiful fresh (mostly Italian) bread and no least beautiful fresh salads and appetizers served with it. Read more...

I met my friend a couple of days ago and she suggested we go to the Sweet home cafe. That was my first time to the place. It turned out to be quite a new cafe on Myasnitskaya street right next to MuMu restaurant, I frequented while I was still an undergrad student at HSE. The place is nice, but it's more about the setting than about the food. Read more...

Yesterday I was meeting a friend and she suggested we check out the Upside down cake Moscow bakery. I felt really lucky with this finding. We spent 2.5 hours there and since then I can't help thinking about when I'm going back to try more desserts. Read more...

I'd normally go to Dve Palochki on Kamergersky if I felt like Japanese food for lunch. These days their waiters turned just incredibly slow for some reason, so last week I went to Dai Sushi Japanese place which is also right next to my office. The place turned out to be so nice that since then I keep coming there every other day. Read more...

Since I tried my last almond croissant in Paul bakery I got more lucky. I found Orloffsky hleb (Орлоffский хлеб) bakery on Novyy Arbat by chance. It is not very visible, so I'd probably never know about if I didn't pass by. I knew I had to try their pastry as soon as I entered. Read more...

It's fine with Italian restaurants in Moscow. Good French, Spanish, Chinese or Japanese places are harder to find. Picking a right Indian or Thai restaurant can be really hard. If you are an expat in Moscow, plan travelling to Moscow or simply live in Moscow, here’s are the restaurants that might be of interest to you. These are simply places I like and keep visiting.

To me Moscow is the city of cafes and bakeries. It is packed with small and large "kofeynya's" (the name we use most often to describe these places) with pretty cake vitrines, small tables, espresso, cappuccino etc. Some of them belong to huge chains, some are stand alone. Some are completely disappointing and some are welcoming and delicious. The thing I love about these is that they are comfortable and informal. You are welcome for breakfast, lunch or even midnight snack if you wish.

This Saturday I enjoyed one more Half-a-teaspoon class. Алена Спирина taught how to make meringues this time. Not that I didn't make them before, but the class turned out very insightful for me. We did the French, Italian and Swiss meringue based desserts and Алена made sure to give a lot of detailed explanations. I never really dug as deep into the meringues before. Read more...
