to try Peking duck, swallow nests and black eggs in Moscow – Afisha-Restaurants

  • Last month, it became clear: interest in anything Asian will increase. We have gathered 8 Chinese restaurants in Moscow, where lovers of authentic Chinese dishes have been going for many years, where they play mahjong, cook hobo soup and sing karaoke.

  • JZ Peking Duck
  • JZPeking Duck is a large-scale three-storey Chinese restaurant occupying no less than 2000 sq.m. in the center of Moscow – on Tsvetnoy Avenue. At the first level is the bistro of the Tsyn Fyn Bauzy chain, founded more than seventy years ago by the China Institute of Healthy Eating, with affordable prices, large portions and a healthy concept. Here you can try, for example, Chinese noodles, rice, soups and snacks. In the second – a room with 60 seats with white tablecloths, karaoke, a tent, a children’s room and private areas. In the third – 15 VIP rooms with premium service (but very slow service) and separate entrance from the parking lot.

  • You can easily spend half an hour studying more than two hundred dishes: the JZPeking Duck menu presents the culinary traditions of all regions of China, with a separate chef in charge of each. The famous Beijing duck is highly respected: chef Lu Dian Hua, who has devoted his entire career to cooking this dish, is responsible for preserving the recipe for centuries.

  • Tofu bags with minced vegetables – 850 r.

  • Beef tendons in spicy sauce – 930 rub.

  • Chinese black eggs – 1300 r.

  • “Old Sichuan”
  • “Old Sichuan” on Vernadsky Avenue is the reincarnation of the legendary “Druzhba” restaurant on Novoslobodskaya Street, where tourists from China and lovers of Asian gastronomy, karaoke and mahjong have been going for years. Despite the change in location, the idea (and the team, by the way, too) remained the same: affordable prices and huge portions, worth going with an extremely large group to share authentic specialties – carp in sweet and sour sauce, jellyfish, stomachs pork and, of course, hogo soup, is a Chinese samovar.

  • The location is not obvious, but the value for money is worth it to go to the “South-West” or arrange the delivery of Chinese cuisine at home. By the way, if you happen to be nearby during the day, take a look at a business lunch – their regular guests are especially appreciated.

  • Fried minced pork with starch noodles “Ants on the tree” – 700 r.

  • Dofu with seafood in a Chinese pot – 900 rubles.

  • Noodles in spicy Chongqing broth – 400 r.

  • “Chinese News”
  • For the color of the Beijing district with neon signs and bright posters, head to China News. The first restaurant of the chain, which spreads affordable and understandable Chinese cuisine for every day, opened in 2015 in Konkovo, the second – a little later in Novy Arbat. A great place for when you want to feel the Asian atmosphere and drink a bite of homemade noodles or branded Xiaolongbao pasta without claiming authenticity and following ordinary recipes. Here even children will be taught how to eat Chinese food: young guests are offered special sticks with a touching teddy bear.

  • Sour and spicy soup – 570 rub.

  • Seafood in wok in Hongshao style – 1100 r.

  • Tofu in the style of “three glasses” – 510 r.

  • “Chinese letter”
  • Rappoport’s formality dominates Chinese letter restaurants in Sretenka and Barvikha – it’s a good idea to come here with family or friends to try out Europeanized Celestial versions of exotic dishes. Among the many appetizers, there are many reasons for gastronomic experiments: black eggs with tofu cheese, pressed cheeks, torn heart, chicken legs, roasted duck tongues and the list goes on. The order must be completed with a cocktail, once made by Vasya Zheglov, and the always relevant chun-chu dessert in the form of a golden frog (the main symbol of wealth in Chinese culture).

  • Beef tongue on crispy pork ear – 380 r.

  • Black tree mushrooms – 420 r.

  • Red fish according to the recipe of Empress Tsyn – 1300 r.

  • “Zodiac”
  • It is worth going to one of the oldest restaurants White Rabbit Family to try the Chinese (and not only) cuisine interpreted by Chef Ruslan Magomedsharipov. For three years after the opening, the restaurant was staffed by Chinese chefs, so the restaurant managed to gain the loyalty of Chinese cuisine fans almost immediately. The menu is tailored to the preferences of Russian visitors – a little less spicy and not as sweet as the original. The chef especially suggests trying the Peking duck (Zodiac wisely offers half a portion), and fried rice with seafood in XO sauce

  • Despite its location on the first floor of the Smolensky Passage, the Zodiac is isolated from the hustle and bustle of the city – it has a rather intimate atmosphere, an interior made of natural materials and beautiful aesthetic presentations (just dim sums and a set of dianxin desserts are worth something! ).

  • Crushed cucumbers from Grandma Lak – 490 r.

  • Spicy chicken kung-pao – 690 r.

  • Dim sum “Rainbow” – 710 rubles

  • Flammable tangerine
  • For ten years, the Mandarin Combustible chamber bar has been serving cocktails and wines with the most popular and understandable dishes of Chinese cuisine, most of which are based on two ingredients – noodles and duck (it is no coincidence that the eponymous Rappoport restaurant operates in one of bar rooms for several years). But other than that, there are plenty of interesting places in Lubyanka’s bar: traditionally pressed pork ears with coriander, an alternative to Peking duck – a burger with shiitake mushrooms and black bean paste and miso risotto.

  • Crispy eggplants with tangerines and cilantro in sweet chili sauce – 400 r.

  • Black noodles with smoked eel in oyster sauce – 1100 r.

  • Broth with glass pasta, duck, pok-choy cabbage and egg – 850 r.

  • Hong Kong
  • Not a single center – for good Chinese cuisine it is not a sin to cross the Boulevard Ring. Thus, in the Hong Kong restaurant, on the 24th floor of the Holiday Inn Hotel, you can try authentic Chinese dishes tailored to Russian tastes overlooking the city panorama and Sokolniki Park. For those who want an extensive culinary experience, there is an appetizer set on the menu – the opportunity to try everything at once: pork ears, beef heart and Sichuan chicken.

  • Tuna with carrot-ginger mousse and gooseberry sauce – 820 rub.

  • Squirrel carp in sweet and sour sauce – 2100 r.

  • Jellyfish salad – 480 rubles

  • “Chuanyu”

  • The Chuanyu restaurant on Michurinsky Prospekt offers authentic Sichuan cuisine, which is popular not only in its homeland but also abroad. Chefs from China, under the guidance of Chef Li Bing, prepare mao-xue-wang (a dish with pork blood, beef tripe, ham, pork artery), Chongqing noodles in a spicy sauce, fried green beans with minced meat and turmeric with dried red pepper, hard tofu in a stone pot and boiled amorphous flower. Half of the restaurant’s hall is dedicated to the legendary Chongqing hogo, which is served for 2,480 rubles along with an unlimited amount of products.

  • Chinese yam fried with tree mushrooms – 960 r.

  • Swallow nest soup with Chinese dates – 4380 r.

  • Braised goose in soy sauce with bamboo – 2100 r.
