Perm is the gateway to Asia on your Trans Siberian tour, and is one of the main cities in the Ural mountains. It is an extremely interesting city to visit, so you should definitely make a space for it in your itinerary. Once there, you’ll need to eat and drink, so here are seven restaurants in Perm that locals love.
If you prefer a place where the locals go to eat on a budget, look no more and head over to 100lovaya. Located on the premises of Perm State Pedagogical University’s student accommodations, and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it has saved countless students suffering from hangovers, midnight munchies and general hangryness. 100lovaya is the embodiment of the Russian concept of stolovaya, a buffet serving a selection of traditional dishes. The menu changes daily and all the food is displayed on the counter, so no guesswork is needed. It is truly a Russian fast-food joint for any meal of the day.
If elegant settings and traditional comfort food are more your style, Kompot will satisfy. Kompot is a chain of cosy family restaurants with pleasant, green interiors reminiscent of a fruit orchard. They serve seasonal Russian classics prepared with fresh, local ingredients. Each location is always filled with local families celebrating special occasions or simply enjoying a pleasant afternoon together.
