Risotto
Risotto

This dish comes from Northern Italy whose climate is ideal for growing rice (riso means 'rice'). The key ingredient is semi-rounded short-grain rice cooked with meat, fish or vegetable broth. Try risotto with parmesan cheese and white wine. Add saffron for flavour and yellow colour.

This cozy, authentic restaurant has a lot of Indian vegetarian dishes to offer which you wouldn't normally get to try in common life. Non-ordinary recipes are conjured by vegetarian chefs (a mandatory requirement for employment), and the suppliers of food undergo a strict selection process: no pesticides or GMOs, only fresh, certified fruits and vegs! Sattva insists that its highest standards of purity in cooking have a huge impact on the taste of the food. Go and check it for yourself! Try the sumptuous pumpkin risotto in coconut sauce, the incredible zucchini and cashew cream soups and the hearty maharaja thali, a traditional dish of India and Nepal.

Enjoy non-typical tastes and flavors, the Muscovites are not accustomed to, accompanied with hypnotizing sounds of tamarind and live vocals. By the way, the restaurant has its own cashback program, which will make your visit even more pleasurable.

Biscuits
Biscuits

Biscuits are small, crisp cakes made from flour, salt, and butter. They are typically sweet and can include such ingredients as chocolate, jam, or cinnamon.

This “delicate eating” cafe, as it calls itself, started with desserts and has evolved into a full-fledged conscious eating restaurant. You won't find artificial ingredients, refined sugar or gluten in their dishes. The chef of the restaurant is famous for her innovative thinking and is constantly experimenting with flavor combinations and superfoods: green and blue matcha, Peruvian maca, chia seeds and hemp. By the way, if you have a friend who never went vegan, he’ll also have something to eat here: their vegan menu has dishes with seafood, fish and eggs.

Be sure to try the new Era's sugar-and gluten free dessert collection: you can eat these biscuits even after 6 p.m. without feeling guilty at all. Also, check out the corners with dried flowers and stylish home goods located in the same location!

This conceptual place in Stoleshnikov Lane will not leave you indifferent. The main principle of KM20 chefs is producing healthy and tasty food for metropolitan citizens.

On the roof of the three-storey restaurant you’ll find one of the best Moscow summer verandahs with nice panoramic views, and below there’s a concept-store with designer streetwear and sneakers.

Make sure to have banana fritters with coconut caramel or acai-bowl with granola and fresh berries for breakfast, and bulletproof coffee as a drink (this special recipe from Tibet accelerates metabolism, clarifies the mind, charges with energy and helps to lose weight without dieting). During the evening meal, do not ignore the wine list of the restaurant, where each wine is a real pearl with a living soul. By the way, taking care of its guests, the restaurant has released a detox line of shots based on fresh juices and kombucha packed in beautiful branded cans.
