- Worlds collide at the Alameda de Santa Maria La Ribera, a Mexico City park with a Moorish Kiosk at its center and a Russian restaurant, Kolobok, across the street. Owned and operated by a family from Kazan, Russia, Kolobok is unpretentious and offers the substantial, filling meals the country is famous for.
Start with a Vinagret salad, which is prettily composed of potatoes, carrots, beets, white cabbage, onions, gherkins, and olive oil. Try the Solyanko soup – an unusual blend of 4 types of meat, lime, and olives, topped with a dollop of cream. Among the entrees (or platos especiales), the Pelmeni is ever popular with the little ground meat dumplings available with or without broth. For dessert, the Russian empanada filled with green apple is tartly sweet piroshki.
Beverages include beer, wine, and cocktails.
Walk off your meal by crossing the Alameda to the Geology Museum.
