Cafe Russia information
Step back in time at this ivy-covered teahouse-cum-restaurant and cafe. Black-and-white photos illustrating Hā’ěrbīn’s Russian past line the walls, while the old-school furniture and fireplace evoke a different era. Sadly, staff seem more interested in napping than serving their signature Russian fare such as borscht and piroshki (cabbage, potato and meat puffs). Russian vodka is available, too.
The restaurant is off Zhongyang Dajie in a little courtyard.
