What is delicious in Teremok?
Russian Hearty Pancakes
In Teremok you can try pancakes with nice fillings. All pancakes are baked on the spot. [When we were writing these lines, it seemed that we could smell a browned in a frying pan pancake in Teremok – and this is the best recommendation.]
Fillings: red caviar (there is also “double red caviar”), mildly salted red fish – salmon, sour cream, vegetable oil, Meat hero (minced meat, mushrooms and sour cream), pork, mushrooms and cream.
