Yesterday a few bloggers met up to celebrate Nanoomi's 편집장님's birthday. We headed down to Siberia in Kyeongnidan to sample their opening day offerings.
Siberia now has two cafes, one on either side of the road heading up to the Hyatt hotel and both offer a selection of Russian beers and vodka. For their opening day celebrations (of cafe number two) they laid on a 15,000 won sample platter with a bowl of borscht, two kinds of dumplings (potato and meat), a Russian style salad and some meringue/pastry desserts.
Our Russian hosts were also kind enough to provide us with a sample of their blinis (pancakes), both savoury and sweet.
The food is... well... Russian. If you like beetroot soups and steamed dumplings then you'll probably have a great time. The food is simple and hearty and I look forward to trying some different items from their menu in the future.
The vodka flowed freely and it was a great chance to put catch up with a few bloggers/tweeters and hear some interesting tales of stealth barbecuing on the side of the Han river and of secret picnic spots in Kangwon province (only accessible by four wheeled vehicles).
If you fancy popping down to Siberia then head out of Noksapyeong station and head towards Kyeongnidan, turn right after Buddha's Belly and head up the hill. Siberia is on both the left and the right hand sides after five minutes walk. You can find them on Facebook...
