Introduction to Uzbek food on Vasilievsky Island

Well. I love food therefore the countries where the food culture exists. One of these countries is Uzbekistan for sure. There is huge community of Uzbek immigrants in St. Petersburg. During the tour I will tell you stories about Central Asia and Uzbekistan. We will visit local market with traditional Uzbek bakery and Central Asian shops. Finnaly we'll go to a local Uzbek chaikhana. Don't expect a fancy restaurant. The place is mostly popular among immigrants.

Alex was very good and informative he explained with use of pictures and maps about Russia and the surrounding countries and of course Uzbekistan. It was very interesting and it helped us understand the area and the history of the regions much better. The meal was wonderful our compliments to the chef and the restaurant owner was a delightful man. Keep this trip on your books as I am sure many future visitors to St Petersburg will enjoy it. We certainly did. 😄

Not only knowledgeable, Alex was very nice and understanding. Due to the long waiting at the custom control, I arrived the meeting point later than expected but the group was still waiting for me. Definitely a must-do tour.

Alex told me a lot of things related to central asia, I didn't know anything before so it was quite an experience. The uzbiek food is great, it is very similar to the food xinjiang province in China, I enjoyed a lot. After the trip he also gives me information about the city. I really like this trip!

Aleksandr was like a window on central asia. He tells you about the people through the delicious food that is on offer on the market and a small market with handlers and products from the region. Combined with his smile and open mind he makes a great guide. If you are looking for a rather different view on st Petersburg this is wortwhile. Jorik (The Netherlands)
