My My restaurant is a self-service restaurant, serving proper food at affordable price. The place is packed with people and there are many selection of food to choose from. The good thing about it, they have English listing of the food available at each section. There were about 6-7 men, all very much taller than my 5ft 3" frame, reminds me a lot of the mafia with their black leather jacket, black shirt, black glasses and jeans standing in front me at the line. One of them heard my friend having problem ordering her food, turn around and helped her with it. It takes a while to get used to having your food weighted before it's served to you. I guess this is the way for them to ensure you get what you pay for; no more no less.
A funny incident happened to me at the GUM.
If you happened to visit the Vodka Museum, you have to try the caviar pancake. It is one of the most delicious dessert I've ever had... Do take note if you want to have the vodka testing experience offered by the museum, you have to call in and book ahead of time. We couldn't believe our ears when we were told we have to book ahead of time.... one would thought they have ample of vodka stocked at that museum...
I didn't manage to visit the Kremlin as for some unknown reason, it was closed to public that day.. what a bummer. I was really forward to visit the Armoury Chamber.
