Ikura

A fairytale view of the Trubnaya Square, coconut sake, bao buns with crab meat, meditative semi-darkness, and the glitters of the gas torch adding final gloss to the food. Restaurateur Boris Zarkov and his team have long become experts in the Izakaya nikkei format that skillfully mixes a Japanese tap room with the Peruvian-Japanese Nikkei hybrid. We all remember how marvelous the Chicha restaurant once was. Add to this the curiosity of Moscow residents and the perfect boulevard location of Ikura (anyone walking along the boulevards is bound to bump into the sign) – and the restaurant is sure to enjoy popularity, it just needs enough seating.
