Evidently I love food!

08 July 08

Here are the photos of GUM I promised yesterday. I was deliriously happy there because a) I love food, b) I love food halls, c) Everything is gloriously retro/I actually ate some of this stuff when I was about five and c) the typography! how good is it! It was basically great.

Wow, incredible! I’m hoping t visit a friend in Russia next year. My learning of Russian is going verrrry slowly though. All I recognized from this post was the word sugar, and that won’t get me very far! x

Oh man, I’m totally like you! Just love to wander around in food courts (especially the old ones) and look, smell and touch. It’s fab! I’m often to embarassed to take a lots of photos though, and usually I just snap some poor quick shots so that no one will se.. :S

Is this the Harrod’s food hall of Moscow? Love the milk cartons, the packaging is so retro and cute…

I love the retro bottles…they look like the old coke bottles you used to get when they were made out of glass. I do love those.

GUM is the most expensive shop in Russia.Really ? we eat sugar(in blue),fish and milk,but in other packs…=)

no i guess even Eliseevsky is more expensive, not speaking about Globus Gourmet, and Azbuka Vkusa is pretty much at the same level

Do you ever get told off for taking pictures in shops & restaurants? x

Eleanor Jane replied almost 12 years ago.

Nah, but only because I’m so scared that I WILL that I’m really sly about it! Generally in restaurants people don’t care, but in this shop I saw someone else taking photos so went for it! It helps not having a flash of course. x

I heart Moscow typography, there is something about them that just absolutely thrills me. :) Pretty!
