Good Moscow restaurants with an average of up to 1,000 rubles – The City, 17/03/2022

Together with restaurant reviewer Alexander Ilyin, we have collected invisible places with excellent food that clearly deserves your attention. There were 12 facilities. From the pleasant: the average check on them will not be more than a thousand rubles.

“Kredelkov”

Leningradsky prospect, 78, bldg. a

Bakery, bakery and a small cafe in Sokol. One of the few shops in Moscow that deserves the title of urban legend. It looks unpretentious, literally a window on the wall, but behind this window are baked the best buns in town (although for the sake of fairness it should be noted that there is minimal competition). There are sweets (with poppy seeds, cinnamon, seeds, caramel) and filling (with cheese, sausages, ham). In addition, they prepare a variety of puff pastry, Hungarian cheesecakes and laconic buns – also, in principle, pretzel, but German and with coarse salt.


“Glass Ilyich”

ag. Sergius of Radonezh, 23–25, p. 1

A bar in a typical Moscow type “on the corner”. A purebred, untouched by all fashion, example of the old school – although it opened recently, in 2021. A person who has not seen the USSR era should get used to the design, which developed freely from the idea of ​​a place, into a strong emotional conversation, to guests who have no idea about the intricacies of secular treatment. They cook amazingly well here (the Belyashi are generally among the top five in Moscow), Zhigulevskoye is brought from Samara and the tincture map contains 51 seats. And you can also play chess.


Shawarma Bar

ag. Pyatnitskaya, 24

Coffee without seats, but with food designed according to the rules of the restaurant. An experienced eye will immediately notice the details: the shawarma is brought to readiness in the oven and not under pressure, before that it is generously smeared with butter and sprinkled with grated Parmesan. Sauces are a special story: mayonnaise of completely non-industrial origin, feta mashed with yogurt, aeolian with truffle, tahini, champagne. Not only the chicken is wrapped in pie, but also the beef stew with mushrooms and the lamb with fried eggplant. In addition to shawarma, they cook coconut curry with noodles and udon with chicken wings.


“Alyosha and Decanter”

Pastries and tinctures – so you should come here (and it is not yet known what is more attractive). Cheburek is available with both lamb and minced meat 50/50, traditional for Moscow, ie beef with pork. He orders them every second, and not only that – they leave behind the famous Druzhba in Sukharevka. As for the tinctures, their exact range can not be calculated, as new ones are constantly being invented. And “Alyosha and the Countess” has incredible witty goods – for example, T-shirts with the caption “It’s good to have Alyosha”. It is true that they release it into the microcirculation, so you have to seize the moment.


Taum Hummus Bar

Volokolamskoe sh., 6

An Israeli cafe at the beginning of Volokolamka, loved by all the locals, even if they are not Jews at all. The species is the most difficult of all – the honest kitchen. They cook everything they are supposed to be: shawarma, shakshuka, hummus and falafel. As well as patties, cinnamon kebabs on a cinnamon stick, schnitzel and – my invention – schnitzel in a bowl, a giant sandwich that can definitely feed two people. All this is recommended to be rinsed with beer and cider. Although coffee is also available.


“Pancakes” in Taganka

ag. Vorontsovskaya, 8

A monument in an unpretentious era that was considered happiness to eat something hot. It is now common for the modern public to visit the Pancake cafe on Vorontsovskaya Street only if, for example, an informal poetry night takes place there. But in vain. Because the pancakes here are not bad at all, and so is the rest of the kitchen. Clearly there is nothing to do here to look for a culinary discovery, but if you suddenly decide to miss it, go here and not to the modern day restaurants that are stylized as Scoops. Nostalgia is a pleasant feeling, but it can not be deceived.


“Dionysius”

The pearl of the RUDN gastronomic complex has been operating since 2002. Cuisine – Indian, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Peruvian, as well as vegetarian and pan-European. Prices are lower than the city average. But they do not save products, they survive due to the constant flow of visitors – in summer, there is a queue, even on the street. The degree of spicyness is adjusted at the request of the guest, but it is important not to forget it – by default, they cook quite authentically, out of habit, you can burn the receptacles.


Gioza Mazaya

ag. Novokuznetskaya, 39, building 1

There are currently three Gyodza Mazaya facilities, but two of them are market corners. There is only one cafe so far, on Novokuznetskaya. Such food is usually called Pan-Asian, although in this case it is rather Japanese cuisine with a Pan-Asian accent. You have to order, of course, Japanese gyoza pasta. There are six types and three ways of cooking – grilling, steaming, frying. It’s useless to look for parallels with something you have already tried. The rest of the kitchen is also quite fantastic. Try, for example, a rice bun with salmon and salted caramel – made only at Gyoza Mazaya.


Taco Project

Veskovsky per., 3

Mexican cafe with on-page menu on the alley near Novoslobodskaya. The spices are mainly brought from Mexico, the rest of the products are Russian. The tortillas are made by themselves – in the press, immediately after receiving the order, and these are completely different tortillas, and all the food has nothing to do with the elegant cuisine of Tex-Mex. At the same time, the owners seem to be deprived of the usual ambitions of the Muscovites and are completely happy just to feed the people good food. As for sharpness, it is slightly reduced by default. But, if nothing else, they can add.


“Acha-chacha”

Leningradsky pr-t, 9b, building 1

Abkhazian intensely family restaurant. The cuisine is partly Georgian, partly Abkhazian – and this is exactly the second half to be ordered. Get amgyal cake, smoked meat, Abkhazian smoked cheese with Abkhazian polenta and make sure you have khachapur – it’s like khachapuri, but the owners will definitely explain why and how khachapur is best. However, there is no particular secret here: the spices are completely different, even adjika, with all its Caucasian orthodoxy, is different from the usual. By the way, there are wines from Abkhazia on the wine list and they are not the same as those sold in supermarkets, but good.

The Israeli public catering in its typical form is half market, half tavern. Strong, tough market service. Large tables where complete strangers are forced to dine elbow to elbow. But these are the first five minutes, then already familiar, after ten minutes you start speaking with an accent. The menu includes everything that is eaten in Tel Aviv under conditions: hummus, falafel, kebab and so on. Be sure to add a boiled egg to everything. Kashrut is not observed, so they cook shrimp dishes – and not so expensive. You can buy Israeli canned food to go, first of all, pickles, these are really completely different cucumbers.


Kab Kao

Formal – Thai street food. Truly a Thai restaurant with perfect taste, with absolutely no sticky tourist crap. Thais work in the kitchen, so it is even inappropriate to ask a question about authenticity. I would like to order almost everything, but it must be understood that the human resources are sufficient for a maximum of one and a half dishes – decent portions, and for soups, for example, they also bring a bowl of rice. A large group, climbing on each other’s plates, will also fail to come – the institution is tiny. So there is a risk of getting stuck.
