    Rostov-on-Don is the land of the Cossacks, hence the traditional Cossack local cuisine. There are many varieties of the ukha fish soup, pike croquettes and fried catfish: all fish comes from the Don River. There are also vegetarian-friendly restaurants and establishments serving exotic Asian cuisine.

    A green oasis of calm amid glass and concrete on the fourth floor of a business center: the Green Cafe is engulfed in luxurious greenery. The tables and the wall paneling are from solid wood. Though this is a realm of vegetarian and Indian cuisine, it also has something to offer for meat and carb lovers.

    Green Café's owner is enthusiastic about popularizing Indian food and culture and cares less about profit. He has travelled to India many times. In Puttaparthi, he met cook Donta Kharish. For two years, Kharish has been the head chef at Green Café.

    Most of the spices and ingredients used here come directly from India. Chef Kharish flies home twice a year. He brings homemade cheese from cow's milk, coconut oil and other delicacies. For those familiar with Indian culture, there is a separate dining hall with a Buddha statue, avatars and special lighting.

    Green Cafe is an ideal place for vegetarians, vegans and raw food enthusiasts. No alcohol or carbonated drinks are served here. Some popular European dishes are also available. As the restaurant uses only original ingredients, it was forced to exclude pizza: Italian cheeses are under sanctions in Russia. A vegetarian burger with a green lentil patty was added instead. Chefs say that most customers don't realize that this is a meat-free burger.
