Aura

Whether you're looking for pan-Asian bites near the Zil cultural center, a burger and beer fix in the center or somewhere to enjoy a craft beer before catching a movie at the Pioner summer cinema, we've got your culinary cravings sorted.

Aura

Pan-Asian at Avtozavodskaya

Aura is worth a visit if you find yourself around Avtozavodskaya, a rather trendy neighborhood since the opening of the ZIL cultural center. Start with the wonton soup (350 rubles), then continue with tender chicken curry (590 rubles) or the rich spinach palak paneer (450 rubles). Pair your meal with a fragrant masala tea (340 rubles).

Beer and burger fix in the center

Get Jerry has the feel of a dive bar that scrubs up well. The staff are friendly, the decor is modern and the menu has some of the cheapest bites you’re going to get for such a central location — special mention to the dirty cheeseburger (320 rubles). Beer is the star of the show, with countless varieties from both home and abroad.
