If you want a genuine feel of Soviet Russia, Varenichnaya №1 is the place to visit. The menu is a prime example of authentic Soviet cuisine at its best: generous helpings of delicious pelmeni, vareniki both sweet and savory and traditional Soviet desserts. Hailed as some of the best dumplings in Moscow, you can get them in 15 locations around the city. The interior has a jolly atmosphere, with bright colors and nostalgic items from the Soviet era decorating the inside, and book shelves full of tattered but loved copies of Russian and Soviet literature. A popular and affordable eatery for locals and tourists alike.
