    Danilovsky Market
    Stop: 3 hours -
    Our tour begins in the little-known Danilovsky district of Moscow, which is home to one of the most prominent examples of constructivist architecture in the city. Parisians have long argued about the beauty of the Eiffel Tower; the Muscovites have polarised opinions about the Ship House. Having learned a little about the lives of locals here as we walk, we’ll arrive at the tastiest part of our tour — the food market — and this particular one attracts both trendy chefs and savvy locals alike. Our degustation menu for the day will include sour, spicy, cheesy and sweet treats for your delectation. We hope you’re hungry! We’ll start with nature’s bounty: Russian honey served with herbs and berries. Next it’s on to appetisers and you’ll try the freshest cheeses and curd from the Caucasian region. You’ll be surprised by the number of milk products Russia and other countries from the former USSR used to consume every day. You’ll then try juicy tangerines from Abkhazia if it's winter or delicious apples in summer from the gardens around the city. Then it’s on to two proper Russian delicacies. First is smoked lard, which sounds a bit odd to the western palate, but trust us, it’s rich, fulfilling and delicious! Then, red caviar from the island of Sakhalin, an absolute must-eat while in Moscow. Next we’ll time travel to the Soviet era to take a peep at a typical kitchenette with stripped tablecloth, cut glass and toffees for children, plus plenty of jars of pickles and homemade jams. You can then taste the secret cure to every Russian’s hangover, salty cucumbers and sauerkraut. After these salty delicacies, a Kvas or fruit-drink will banish your thirst. We’ll then head south to explore our favourite dishes from Uzbekistan and Dagestan, pilaf and chudu (scones) with cheese or pumpkin, finishing off with tea and pies. We recommend the sweet pie with poppy seeds. Yummy! Happy and full, you’ll be guided to the metro station or you can of course stay and shop for tasty souvenirs too! Don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see, do and where to eat during your stay in magnificent Moscow.

Was taken through the Danilovsky Market by Alexandra. She knew the perfect order in which to try the food, picked out some of the best bread I’ve had in my life, and was wonderful company. In addition to Russian standbys such as borscht and pelmeni, we also tried crepes from

Enjoyable tour of the Danilovsky food market with Olga although the start of the tour was delayed. The instructions about where to meet were confusing as there are at least two entrances - one main entrance and one side entrance.
