CoVok Sovetskoe Cafe

Russian in Voronezh

This nostalgic cafe recalls the days of the USSR, not with kitsch propaganda posters, but with cosy nooks, antiques, black-and-white TVs flickering on the walls and a witty menu highlighting the best of erstwhile Soviet republics such as Georgia (khinkali), Belorussia (potato pancakes), Uzbekistan (pilaf) and Ukraine (brisket, borsch). There's also an entire section devoted to salo (lard): what's not to love?
