Elki-Palki tavern: "Russina Style" Russian Cuisine Tip by multi

Russian Cuisine, Saint Petersburg: 137 reviews and 147 photos


I like this place very much. Interior is very interesting. Everything looks like you are in the izba in a villiage. Also there is a very big oak. All food are in earthenware crockery.

At the moment thera two Elki-Palki in Saint-Petersburg - on NEvsky prospect (metro station Mayakovskaya) and on Mosvsky prospect (metro station Park Pobedi)

It'll be better to book a table as in the evening there are no free tables usually

Favorite Dish: The most popular dich is a waggon. Usually there are 2 waggons - hot and cold. Hot - garnish, vegetables, meat and etc. Cold - a lot of salads, salting (cucumbers, mushrooms and so on) and etc.
All these dishes are situated on a real waggon. So waiter is bringin you a plate. You are taking this plate and going to the waggon(cold or hot). After these you are putting as much as you can food and you can eat! You can put food on your plate many times. So it's like smorgasbord. And this cost only 7$.
Bear 2$-5$.
