For example, a dish “fried potatoes” is beef liver and pork roasted with red potatoes and mushrooms, we serve it in the pot, with fir twigs, with an original infusion. The guests receive a dish with the smell of taiga. We work with local suppliers, so all products are fresh and highly qualitative.”
