Restaurant El Copitas

A semi-secret (and the best known in St. Petersburg and Russia as a whole) Mexican taqueria and bar. Reservations are obligatory: the place only works on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, and the number of those clamoring for some mezcal and sangrita is enough to fill it for a week. Those who complete the quest of finding the coveted door without a sign in the gloomy courtyards of Kolokolnaya Street will be cordially treated to inventive cocktails and tacos. Frequent guests even get a personalized cup for regular drinking.
