The Russian first fish fast food restaurant is to open as part of the Global Fishery Forum and to offer a Magadan shrimp burger and fried sprat on the menu.
Operating under the Russian Fish brand name, the restaurant will emulate the format of global fast food chains and will feature two kinds of burgers – white fish and shrimp, cod liver and calamari salads, smoked fish soup and tom yam, as well as pollack with home-cooked potatoes on the side and crucian cutlets. Fried sprats in tartar sauce will serve as an alternative to popular potato fries, Russian News Agency TASS reported.
All meals will be prepared from Russian-sourced fish only using special recipes by the Fahrenheit restaurant chef Viktor Titov.
Prices at Russian Fish will also surprise in a good way. The average check for a three-dish meal will come at about RUB 600–700, on a par with other fast-food eateries.
For a more sophisticated experience, the exhibition’s food court houses the Russian Fish restaurant, where guests will be offered an exclusive menu of Russian fish and seafood developed specially for the Forum, including Kamchatka crab, cod and mackerel salads, baked mussels, oysters, scallops, Karelian trout, Murmansk cod, and a lot more.
The Russian Fish restaurant project is supported by major fishing companies Magadanryba, FOR Group, Norebo, Murmanseld-2, and FEST. The FOR Group, one of Russia’s leading producers of pelagic fish that supplies 60 per cent of its output to the domestic market, is also a partner of the Forum business program.
The II Global Fishery Forum & Seafood Expo Russia, organized by Russia’s Federal Agency for Fishery, is taking place at the Expoforum convention centre in St. Petersburg from September 13 to 15.
