Prancing petroglyphs and traditional Khakass motifs welcome you to Abakan’s best self-service cafeteria and most satisfying cheap eat. Appetising sweet-and-sour chicken meatballs, plov (meat and rice), steaks, sausages and many other Russian favourites mean packed tables inside and out at mealtimes. The Russian-only menu is posted at the entrance, so you can decipher at your leisure.
