This is not exactly the Russian Tea Rooms, New York, and few A List celebrities visit to dine, drink and discuss Dostoevsky. Instead this place is popular with local Chinese people and the Sino-Soviet influence is evident in the large tables and cramped seating plan. Borsht, of course, is on offer, a soup as synonymous with Russia as kimchi is with Korea, though far less pungent. Zakuska, a Russian salad, is also popular, and the shashlik, marinated lamb pronged Kebab-style with eggplant and onions, is worth a shot. A three-course lunch set costs around HKD60 and the cakes look tasty.
