It’s totally impossible to resist, I swear. One bite and you’re already ordering a second plate to take home and snack on.
But you’ll have to wait just a little longer, since in this particular Street Russian Project we’re not going inside the restaurants… yet. We’re going to stay on the street for now.
Can you read the names of these restaurants?
