Gourmet Tour: Old Russian Cuisine in Suzdal
March 19, 2019 18:35


It is no coincidence that Suzdal enjoys great popularity among tourists. This old Russian town is part of the Golden Ring and has long been a gourmet highlight of the Vladimir Region. One of the most ancient Russian cities, Suzdal was first mentioned in the chronicles back in 1024. Russian traditions, including those of national cuisine, are venerated here.

It is in Suzdal, where you can taste traditional Russian dishes just the way there were cooked in the era of Kievan Rus’. Borscht, dumplings with meat (pelmeni) and cottage cheese (vareniki), and pancakes with caviar - these dishes are well known to all the connoisseurs of Russian cuisine, but they might have never tried their authentic taste.
Local Suzdal chefs, however, know a lot of amazing secrets that enable them to turn these familiar dishes into true masterpieces. Thus, lots of traditional Russian dishes are cooked in real Russian stoves in Suzdal. Moreover, they use only earthenware for cooking. Traditionally, food was cooked in Russia in the stove with a special temperature level maintained in it for a long time.


National Drink of Mead 
An ancient Russian town with beautiful traditions, Suzdal also boasts its national drink of mead aka medovukha, i.e. honey wine. For centuries, the technology of making the drink has practically not changed. Just like hundreds of years ago, today mead is brewed and ingrained with various spices and berries. Travellers will have the rare opportunity to try several dozen various sorts of authentic mead in Suzdal. Beer is also traditionally brewed here and makes a pleasant addition to gourmet dishes.

Suzdal Restaurants and Cafes
Speaking of local restaurants, it is worth mentioning their unusual appearance. As a rule, all Suzdal restaurants are housed in wooden huts, designed and decorated in the best traditions of the old Russian style. The waiters in such restaurants certainly wear national Russian costumes.


One of the most attractive Suzdal restaurants is “Russkaya Trapesa” (i.e. Russian Feast). Here visitors will find a huge selection of delicacies and high-class service. A very pleasant place to relax is the "Chainaya" café (i.e. Tea Lounge). In addition to delicious teas, the customers can enjoy a variety of dishes. Borscht with buns and the Russian dressed herring are in the greatest demand among them. If you are fond of home-style cooking, you will surely enjoy eating out at the restaurant “Ulei” (i.e. Beehive). Complementary to your order, you will be served with a ton of various Russian pickles.
