We arrived in Moscow this afternoon and headed straight out to eat because the BA inflight meals were stranger and more terrible than ever. We went to Yolki-Palki (apparently translated as “fiddlesticks”) which is a chain serving fairly cheap russian foods, with a fun interior and stuffed chickens all over the place. My mum had the zakuski buffet and I had pelmeni, both of which were delicious. Afterwards we went for a walk around Red Square and to GUM to stock up on russian chocolate. Completely different to UK/US chocolate, but I love the stuff since I ate it when I was little. Photos from GUM tomorrow as I’m going to flop in to bed with my Vogue Russia and do some very very slow reading!
possibly the most s/s ’08 on-trend chocolate wrappers ever.
