Peculiarities of the Far Eastern Cuisine 
Far Eastern cuisine is a new gastronomical phenomenon that emerged on the Pacific coast of Russia and absorbed the traditions of immigrants and indigenous people, original cuisine of the Far East, along with Asian adoptions.

From the middle of the 17th century to our days, the gastronomic history of the Pacific Coast of Russia can be pictured as a multilayer pie. The first layer is the culinary traditions of the indigenous peoples of the Far East. The second layer consists of Russian and Ukrainian dishes, adapted by settlers for local products: pelmeni with squid, borscht of sea kale or fish soup with salmon. The third layer is made from borrowings from Chinese (wok), Korean (pyan-se and spicy snacks) and Japanese (raw seafood and sauces) cuisines. And finally, the fourth layer is a common home cooking of the Far East of the Soviet and post-Soviet period.

Vegetable Delicacies of Vladivostok
In addition to seafood, Vladivostok also offers a number of unique edible plants (the so-called wild crops), which are found only in the Far East and some parts of Siberia. They include wild garlic, fern, lemongrass and pine nuts.

All these plants are also widely used in both native Far Eastern dishes, and Asian delicacies. They are not only very tasty and fit almost any other ingredients. On top of all, they are extremely salutary.

Street Food of Vladivostok

The pyan-se steam pie - the Russian version of the ancient Korean dish - was inventedby ethnic Koreans living on Sakhalin in the early 1980s. The dish quickly spread throughout the Far East, having become branded street food of Vladivostok since the end of the last century. Vladivostok pyan-se means a lot of cabbage, a little minced meat and spices. In any weather, they are sold on the streets by women in famous light green aprons with thermos boxes.
