It is a rarity that Russia’s culinary endeavors finds its’ way West. But now a Russian restaurant, which wants to showcase Russian cuisine, has opened in Copenhagen. Restaurant Rusland has just opened in Teglgårdsstræde in Copenhagen's old quarter, Pisserenden.
Here, guests can get a taste of an often-overlooked part of Russia, namely the culinary cuisine as it can be when treated with respect and love for traditional dishes from the big country in the East.
The culinary kitchen, which only a few may be familiar with, brings the mind to the past, Danish farmers' food. Blinis, pancakes from the darker buckwheat flour, is of course part of the menu at Restaurant Rusland, where they can be served with salmon, red caviar, horseradish and a good lump of smetana, which is a like a thicker creme fraiche.
Borsht, the classic beetroot soup, is of course also available on the menu. The soup has boiled for a long time with bones from cow and has plenty of flavor and power that warms well in the daunting winter months.
Georgia's food culture has long excited the initiated, and now the opportunity has come to the audience of Copenhagen. At the newly opened Russian restaurant, it becomes a delicious Georgian chicken dish with lots of flavorful spices and a yellow and red mash that matches well with the restaurant's imported wines or a cold beer from the menu card.
Of course, Restaurant Russia also offers a selection of vodka that cleans the palate between dishes. All in all, the restaurant brings a seriousness to the Russian food culture, which has long been subdued, but abroad also starts to win over the international food scene.
The restaurant's entrance is located in the basement level where you encounter the (vodka) bar, inspired by rural Russia and with recognizable Russian relics along the walls. If you want to embark on the full dining experience, follow the gold steps leading up to the first floor, where red walls, the blue ceiling and the classical decor lead to the imperial Russia of Russia and its former capital, St. Petersburg.
