Inside – the world of carpets, sofas, curtains and lamp shades. You can start with boston and pickled oyster mushrooms; continue with Sogdan salad (duck with apples and celery). At first – a fragrant soup made from veal or mutton. On the second – homemade (meat stewed in a pot with vegetables). And at the end to order a whole samovar with dryers. There is also a children’s menu, in which the dumplings are touchingly called kapatoshki.

The pastry chefs bake a Napoleon cake, a carrot cake, a chak-chak, and a meat pie, zur-belesh, as well as crumbling with kystybyami.

House of Tatar cooking
Yunus Akhmetzyanov, the author of many books on Tatar cooking, worked as a chef (his museum is located on the ground floor) until 1984. At the very beginning of his career, he himself collected recipes, invited housewives to the restaurant – that is, in fact, he canonized modern national cuisine. And now almost all the dishes in the restaurant’s menu are from Akhmetzyanov’s collections. Here you can try such things as, for example, kalju (a roll of several types of meat), or horse meat sausage kazylyk, or exotic taste tutyrmu (sausages from giblets in broth), or beef tails that are incredible even for Tatars. Absolute hits – kulam, soup with meat and noodles, dumplings with mushrooms in a pot, lamb manti. And also, of course, baking – peremyachi, echpochmaki – and desserts: chak-chak.
