Prana Bar St. Petersburg
29 August, 2015
Looking for an inexpensive, tasty, vegetarian restaurant in the centre of St. Petersburg? Then look no further than Prana Bar St. Petersburg. The Sanskrit word for “life force”, the term prana is at the heart of the menu, which breathes new life into traditional Russian, Italian and Japanese cuisine.
Situated on Kazanskaya street, you can escape the hustle and bustle of St. Petersburg’s centre in this vegetarian restaurant. At Prana Bar you feel as if you have been transported to a Caribbean island as there’s a television screen projecting images of waves crashing against golden beaches under an azure sky.
Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, or simply want to try classic dishes with a meatless twist, you will not be disappointed at Prana Bar. The menu is varied from hearty Italian pasta dishes, to fresh, simple sushi. I definitely recommend the vegetarian plov. Although vegetarian plov might sound like a complete contradiction, the chunks of adygei cheese and use of chick peas really enhances the flavour and texture of the dish. The freshly prepared soups are also a big hit. Anyone who loves the homeliness of a bowl of tomato soup should definitely try Prana Bar’s take on this classic, which uses arugula and drops of balsamic vinegar to add some sophistication. If you fancy a guilt-free yet indulgent dining experience, Prana Bar is the place for you.
