Feeling like you want to try something new in Glasgow that is not the latest deep-fried trend or a killer cocktail? Then come and check out Cafe Cossachok, the first and only Russian restaurant in Scotland!
Beginning its activity in 1998, the restaurant has always had a great reputation and it is known in the city for both its warm and welcoming atmosphere and for the delicious food, which has been pleasing the Glaswegians for almost two decades.
As always, I suggest taking a good look at the inside of the cafe to admire its wonderful decorations: a set of colourful paintings and a collection of authentic Russian shawls ornate the red-painted walls that, together with the handmade wooden tables, really give you the impression of a cosy, traditional restaurant.
The kitchen offers an incredible variety of dishes, ranging from the traditional mix of rice and minced meat wrapped in cabbage leaves (Golubtsy) to even more exotic recipes such as the Georgian Chakhokhbili or the Bulgarian Gouvetch. My favourite, however, is and will always be the Blintzes: fluffy savoury pancakes that can be filled with many different combinations of vegetables and dips. Best dessert? Definitely the Blinis!
