1A Xiyangguan Hutong
Modelled on a rural Russian log dwelling, or izba, Traktirr’s snuggly interior and doting service softens our idea of Russian hospitality with a warm, bucolic atmosphere we can see ourselves hunkering down in during the winter months – all just 100m north of Dongzhimennei Dajie. A safe space for Muscovites and Russophiles alike, Traktirr’s menu runs the traditional gamut from a stodgy Stroganoff (56RMB), to potato and pickled mushroom dumplings (22RMB), to that rare sweet spot in Soviet gastronomy where its three central virtues – quality, value and terror – culminate in something called a Man’s Prank Salad (20RMB). Traktirr Pushkin is a favourite amongst the capital’s naturalised Russians and a revelation for anyone struggling to hold weight. Pro tip: a mug of Yanjing will run you just 7RMB.
