18 Russian Dishes You Should Definitely Try


Russian food doesn’t exactly top the popularity charts, and that’s really sad because this huge country has so much to offer other than vodka and caviar.

Here is a list of 18 Russian dishes you should definitely try if you find yourself in Moscow.


18. Borscht

What is it: A beet root and beef soup, lightly spiced and served cold with a dollop of sour cream on top.

What does it taste like: Like a chunky, cold stew eaten straight from the tupperware at 2 in the night to satiate a midnight hunger run. The sour cream balances out the sweetness, and the red of the beet looks incredibly pretty.
