TROIKA GASTRANOM & RESTAURANT INTERVIEW
I have to say I don’t really like Russian food. This place will not convert the unconvinced, but still it is above average in its category. Best perhaps is the stuffed cabbage, and the meat dumplings are decent. It is run by Moldovans, and you are served by an Azerbaijani, and so it is not quite 100% Russian either. To its advantage! They even have a bunch of those weird, terrible salads with mayonnaise.
