Kirov 2018: where to eat?
Our clients often ask us: what is the best place to go for a lunch? And we always give a detailed answer. We even have a whole digest of places near the hostel where you can go to eat or sit with friends. Some visitors are shy to ask and of course we can not leave our clients hungry, so we decided to write this blog. No advertising, only personal impressions of the author and the editorial staff!
Blinnaya near Tsum
In our opinion this is one of the most underestimated places in Kirov. There are not so many seats, so it is better not to visit it in prime time. But after 3.00 PM this place is heaven. The pancake house has the atmosphere of the post-Soviet dining from the nineties and is open until 8 PM. But for some reason we put it in the first place… ah yes, the kitchen! The way they prepare the food. Of course we recommend you to eat there pancakes. For those who love sweet food – order pancakes with mashed strawberries, or same with salmon. In addition to pancakes there make great bouillons, soups and delicious pelmeni – the dumplings. And a bunch of additional dishes. We highly recommend this place. The prices are surprisingly low, the average check is about 150-200 rubles, and it is in the center of the city!
Dining Room Eshka
Perhaps the nearest point of replenishment of the energy in the area. The cantine is located just 200 metres from the hostel, so we recommend it to those who are in a hurry. Prices are good, the quality of food offered is quite high. Eshka works from 9 AM, so you can even have breakfast if you get up early. The average check is 200 rubles.
Hot Dog Chaos
Located on the corner of Moskovskaya street and Karl Liebknecht. It is only 500 metres from our Hostel Dostoevsky Kirov. The place has a nice atmosphere. Here you can definitely pass the time in a pleasant company, facilitated by leather sofas and relaxing music. There is also an opportunity to play board games. And of course let’s get to the food. For the metropolitan citizen the prices may seem ridiculous, for the local – acceptable. The average check is about 350 rubles. The menu consists of hot dogs and burgers. What esle would you expect from a café with such a name, right? The authors recommend the Italian hot dog, but there is a lot to pick from, including an offer for vegans.
If you come in a bigger company, this is the best place. The prices are reasonable, the food is tasty, you can even order pizza in here. Don’t be fooled by the name, even though it is a cantine, it is a really nice place to go and sit with friends. There is an additional bar that serves milkshakes and spirits, although we would not advise to drink alcohol, since you live in a hostel. The canteen is just a little farer than Hot Dog Chaos at the corner of Karl Liebknecht and Engels/Preobrazhenskaya. The average check is 300 rubles.
If you need urgently to run somewhere and have no time to sit down, we recommend you to go to coffee to go “ Coffee Like”. You will find it near the cinema October (now leisure center) and the bus stop. You can quickly order a flavored drink there, and even some sweet stuff to eat.
Our Hostel Dostoyevsky is located in the heart of Kirov, so there are a lot of places around, offering food and recreation. We recommended you those that we use ourselves, and which our excellent administrators will tell you about too. And of course our city has a world-famous chain McDonald’s and KFC which you will not have difficulties to find.
