Kat Kaffe

Kat Kaffe (address: St. Petersburg, Stremyannaya St. 22/3; telephone: 571-33-77, 970-69-12) was recommended to me by my friend Margot. It’s a tiny place, that from the outside looks more like a club or a bar, not too far from my hostel and the train station. But when you enter inside, you’re transported to another world, even in Russia.

I was handled two menus, the regular menu that has random English words/explanations/translations and a summer menu that was pictures of “summer” foods with the name in English, which were usually translated Russian, and Russian, of course.

After consulting the waiter, I decided on satsiwi – apparently chicken in a nut sauce, that tasted like watery hummus made from pistaches and lavash – a special oblong Georgian bread.

And I also had an interesting Georgian lemonade that was bright green and not lemony or limey at all. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what was in it.
