Can we please talk about how fried bread is the best thing known to man?
Okay, so typical Russian bar food will include basics like french fries and mozzarella sticks. Also typical in Russia is a special type of cheese known as “Checha” (phonetically for you all :). It is a salty cheese sliced into strings typically consumed with beer. (It snuck in the picture on the left…)
In addition, you may easily find pickles or dried fish on the bar menu.
Хлебные Гренки – Fried Brown Bread
Many times this is served with melted cheese on top and your choice of dipping sauces. Salty and crunchy on the outside, but still soft on the inside, the bread is not tart as you may think and it stands up well to the American french fry. Please bring this to America!! AHHH SINFUL
