Very useful shop for vegans in St. Petersburg - Edit

We used to go to this shop a lot while living in Saint Petersburg. They sell a lot of products that aren't easy to find in other places of the city: plant based milk, sausages (delicious salami!), soy yoghurts, vegan cheese, deserts, peanut butter and other nut butters, sauces, veganized typical Russian food (pelmeni with soy instead of meat, typical desserts). A lot of food they sell is made in Russia, they often add new products to their stock. Besides the fact that the shop seems very small, you can find a lot of interesting foods there, sometimes it's better to ask the staff for help if you're not sure they have a certain product like vegan cheese (they often have it, it's just not displayed) or sausages.

Pros: A lot of tasty vegan food available, Typical Russian food in its vegan version, Good price compared to other shops in the city

Useful For Vegan Milk - Edit

Doesn't seem to be a lot of options in St Petersburg as far as vegan groceries goes so Adi was useful in that regard. They don't have a lot of options, themselves, but I did buy some vegan milk and a package of roasted seaweed. The prices are quite high but, then again, most things are in Russia.

Lots of Asian products so that could be of interest. The store is quite central and easy to get to.

Pros: Location, One of few options in city

Cons: Prices, Product variety

only 2 kinds of simili-carne - Edit

Very small organic store sells only 2 kinds of simili-carne and soya milk. No vegan cheese, no margarine. Krishna's quiet ambiance with incense burning. Located just next to the vegetarian restaurant Khrishna's Rada and K.
This is the only correct shop we found at the beginning of september. We are used to fantastic big organic and vegan shops in Paris, London or Berlin, where you can find 50 kinds of vegan cheese and vegan meat. We were disappointed by the low options in Saint Petersbourg. But in this shop, people are kind and the little they sell is better than nothing. Poor vegan russians. How do they do ?

Pay attention, in front of this Krishna shop, there is one other organic shop but no vegan simili, expensive prices, their only soy milk costs 4 euros, like old organic shops in the 70's in France.

Très petit magasin bio. Vend seulement 2 sortes de simili-carne et lait de soja. Pas de fromage vegan, pas de margarine. Ambiance Krishna avec encens et silence total. Ce magasin est juste à côté du restaurant végétarien Rada and K, du mouvement Krishna. C'est malgré tout la seule boutique correcte que nous ayons trouvée début septembre. Quand on est habitués aux fantastiques magasins bio à Paris, Londres ou Berlin, proposant 50 sortes de fromages vegan et fausse viande, on ne peut qu'être déçus devant le peu d'offres vegan de Saint-Pétersbourg. Cependant, les vendeurs étaient gentils et le peu qu'ils vendent est mieux que rien. Pauvres vegans russes, comment font-ils ?

Attention, il y a une autre boutique bio juste en face qui elle, ne vend aucun simili vegan, les prix sont exorbitants, leur seul lait de soja coûte 4 euros, un peu comme dans les magasins bios français des années 70...

Cons: no vegan cheese, no margarine, only 2 kinds of simili carne

Great cafe, disappointing store - Edit

The cafe next door is excellent and has a decent selection for vegans. The store was disappointing and was stocked mostly with packaged Chinese imports and a lot of different teas. The cosmetics section looked okay although I did not dwell there. The store had soy milk without added sugar, and also oat and rice milk (with sweeteners). The staff was not especially courteous although not hostile. This is not as good a store as Veganika.

Pros: Great cafe next door

Cons: Few choices unless you want tea, Apathetic staff

Good little shop - Edit

This little shop next to Rada and K sells a range of vegetarian and vegan healthy products, including tofu, vegan salami, spices, seaweed, coconut milk etc. The workers are happy to explain and point out the vegan products in English.

Pros: Tofu, Vegan salami, Spices

Vegan soy-free salami - Edit

You heard me. The salami that even the cat wanted to eat. And some other great sausages as well - not all of them are vegan though!

Pros: location, easy to find

Cons: expensive
