If you wanted russian food 40 years ago, you would go to the Cinderella Bakery on Balboa at 6th. They are still there today. If you want the best store bought peroshki they have them! Get the fried vs. the baked with meat. They also have an assortment of deli items from salmon roe (caviar), smoked fish and pork holodetz which is an aspic. (with horseradish). The restaurant serves home style dishes like stroganoff, pelmeni, cabbage rolls and veal dishes. They all are good and plentiful servings. Prepare yourself to be questioned while ordering as some of the waitstaff is still working on their sentence structures. The Place always puts on a good meal like your russian grandmothers kitchen on holidays! The Bad thing here is that there is NO parking anywhere in site, since every home in the Richmond now has multifamilies with 20 cars each. I usually will park around Masonic and grab the bus. Prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food you will receive.
