You might remember this article about Russian food and how awesome it is. But where can you try all these delicious things in Montreal, you ask? There are actually a bunch of spots you could head to with your friends, family or your significant other for that special Russian experience.
Russian restaurants are a lot more than just a food thing. Expect dancing, singing and, you guessed it, a hell of a lot of vodka. What's not to love? Oh, and if you've never tried caviar, you're missing out on life and now is your chance to live a little.
1. Restaurant Ermitage
Borscht, blini, caviar and so much more to make your taste buds happy. Definitely a must visit. The restaurant is very cozy and inviting. The service is great. You'll love it.
2. La Caverne
The restaurant is called "The Dungeon" and that's exactly the vibe you'll get from it. You'll feel like you're in a Russian underground cottage. There is a stage where Russian singers perform on the weekend. It's a lot of fun. In addition, the food is absolutely delicious.
