Only certain places had pizza and that was already int eh 80's. We had our own good food we didnt need Western food. We had restarauntes and stores with good Russian food. Different types of Russian sausages, cheeses, meats, the best of course is Russian bread, caviar, vodka, beer, the list goes on. Of course we didnt eat as fatly as Americans do thats not a secret but we all remained in good shape. In America if you light a small fire you immediately get arrested. In Russia we as kids used go to places light a fire maybe ten of us or so and bake potatoes in the charcoal. That was the best taste. I remmember going to football games as a spectator and buying a loaf of Russia bread and good Russian lemonade. We also used to eat vobla/taranka (salty dried fish) and drink beer or kvas ont eh street. On weekends go farther to the country side and make shishkebabs on an open fire. Those were the days.

Russian food culture really is quite good. I don't think there was a belarussian dish that I didn't like. although the cow's tongue wasn't too good.

Wheelchairman,

You are right Russian food is mostly good. I like cow tongue if its cooked right. If you had in my house cooked by my relatives you would of liked it. Does anybody here eat green borch. Not red which is more common but green. Its very good and I prefer it over Red a hundred times.

No it doesnt taste like Red borsh. I personally dislike red borsh but green I love. Go to a really good Russian restaraunte and they will have it. Order it and you wont regret spending the 5 dollars or so. YOu will even want a second plate. Its made with shavel (I dont know how to translate it maybe another Russian can help on this site), potatoes, eggs, and I dont know what else.

Russian food is great! Being Ukrainian I love Varanikey, nalasnikey and borsh. Also Easter offers a great variety of meat. Sorry for the spelling of Ukrainian foods.

Nevksy is right though, if cooked properly you can't beat Russian food. Why even their liver (the cow's of course) cooked by Russians is quite delish.

I love Russian foods and Ukranian foods except for sauerkraut! (which my babushka indeed loves). Oh yes and green borscht is the best I had it on a vacation in St.Petersburg
