Respond to Review of Happy Vegan Shop
by Gudrun

Review: This nice little vegan shop is located in a backyard, but not difficult to find. If you saw only the backyard you would not assume that such a great place was hidden here! The shop is located in a basement and when you approach it the entrance does not look very inviting, but once you are there it becomes all different! You enter a nice, light, clean friendly space with good products and great people. The shop is really small but I find the variety of products amazing. Everything is there: raw food items, mock meat, soy milk, "cheese", "sausages", sweets, cosmetics - you name it! Even Italian ice cream. I saw quite a few Russian brands (if you don't know them yet, try the yummy "Bite" bars!), but also a lot of international ones. The staff is superfriendly and helpful. I did not ask if everybody who works here speaks English, but the 2 guys who were at work when I popped in did. We had such a nice chat that in the end I forgot to buy the ice cream! This place is for sure worth a visit especially when you visit the historic (and touristy) Arbat area. And if you live in Moscow being vegetarian, vegan or raw foodist this is the place to shop anyway. If you live or stay longer in Moscow or anywhere else in Russia, you might want to make use of their web shop, it has a very impressive selection of products. The site is Russian only - so far - but if you don't speak Russian, you will for sure find someone to help you figuring it out...
