Vice Burgers

Vice Burgers

Burgers by the park

Vice Burgers has a straightforward setup. Just across the road from Gorky Park, the open kitchen serves five types of burger in a simple interior with a few tables and plenty of paper towels for sticky fingers. They do one thing and they do it well: perfectly toasted buns, tasty beef sourced from a farm in Penza and delicious skins-on fries. Try the classic Vice burger with melted cheese or the vegetarian Aventura with chickpeas and guacamole (both 350 rubles).

Papa's Zoo

Papa's Zoo

Quintessential expat hangout

Behind the doors of Papa's Zoo lies a sanctuary for any expat party animal. With cheap local beer — and Guinness, too — whether you're fuelling up for the night ahead or dancing to their live music, this new joint by Moscow's famous Doug Steele will surely become one of Moscow's more raucous hangouts. Keep an eye on their daily deals on drinks and classic pub grub.

Chicken Run

Moscow's first gourmet fast food joint

Chicken Run's viral video, featuring Instagram star and actress Irina Gorbacheva, claimed that they could do any dish in five minutes. We tested it, and while it wasn't exactly five minutes, it was pretty close. The place specializes in gourmet-quality food on the cheap. Tender chicken breast with quinoa garnish will cost you 310 rubles, as will stewed chicken leg tandoori style with potato mousse and smoked cheese.
