Perm is not just an embarrassing hairstyle of the 80s – it is also a city in Russia, your gateway to Asia on the Trans Siberian journey. While it isn’t very well known, it is a fascinating place worth visiting. When you do stop to explore, you will get hungry in no time, and when you do, here is a list of the seven best restaurants in Perm.
Located on the corner of Komsomolskaya and Lenina Streets, Sister’s Bar is a restaurant in the very heart of Perm. Its modern interiors match its experimental cuisine. Their large terrace is open in the summers, giving a wonderful view of the city centre. Sister’s Bar is not only a restaurant and a bar, but it also hosts events and lectures.
Another unexpected place in Perm’s culinary scene is PachaMama, a cute little café serving a variety of vegetarian, vegan and raw vegan dishes. It is also the centre of the vegetarian and vegan community in Perm, organising workshops, concerts and lectures. It is a cosy, slightly quirky place definitely worth visiting when you get a little tired of traditional Russian cuisine, which tends to be on the heavy side.
Khutorok is a chain of affordable restaurants serving traditional Ukrainian and Russian cuisines. The interior is very cosy, and the food is delicious. There is always a Khutorok somewhere on your way; therefore, it is a perfect place to have a meal on just about any day of your trip.
