Not for vegans

Posted on 07 / 20 / 2013

I went to this restaurant because it was listed as "vegan-friendly" on Happy Cow.

They have a daily meal, some salads, cous-cous, sandwiches and other small stuff as well as desserts.

I asked someone from the staff if they had anything vegan, when I felt that I was not understood I added: "without anything made from milk in it". The guy looked a bit puzzled but I believe my Russian was understandable enough (plus a Russian guest who did understand me explained again what I wanted). I had the idea that this was not a language problem, but rather that the concept of veganism was not really known.

After checking the menu for some time the guy came up with 2 salads. I was not into salads that day so I asked if there really wasn't anything else for me. They got someone from the kitchen who then told me that there was one little piece left from some type of vegan energy-balls with chocolate and nuts. I bought it. It was a tiny round black thing which I did not find tasty at all, and it stuck around my teeth for some time.

I asked Happy Cow to remove the "vegan-friendly" info for this restaurant and they did this.

This might be a good place for vegetarians and maybe the two vegan salads are tasty, too. I might give them a second chance when I am around. However, as a vegan there is no point of coming here just for the food - you can have salad nearly at any other restaurant in Moscow.

Pros: helpful staff, cheaper than many other veg places in M.
Cons: very limited vegan options

Not for eating

I love this place. It's a good thing just to go walk in there. You can buy souvenirs, incense sticks, amulets, the right food.
Cafe is located on the 3rd floor, is very small. Poor choice of food and high prices. Right next door the Belie Oblaka is a Thai Restaurant.

Pros: shop, activities, place
Cons: cafe, price
