Trojka at dusk

After passing Trojka many times whilst on the High Street, I could tell it was a popular locale. The seats were always full, both inside and out – and on Friday and Saturday nights I could hear traditional Russian music being performed live.

Having never been to a proper Russian restaurant, I admit that I was slightly hesitant to give it a try. However, the longer I live in London, the more willing I am to try new things. After all, why not sample a traditional dish or soak in some Eastern European culture in the comfort of Primrose Hill instead of boarding a plane?

We walked in on a Friday night and were happy to be seated right away. Although incredibly busy and bustling, you will be happy to know they have many tables available.

As I order my Bulgarian wine, and my fiancée orders a traditional Polish lager, we settle in to listen to the gentleman play Russian music on his violin. The music gets everyone involved and certainly sets the tone for the restaurant. As I looked around at the collection of Russian Nesting dolls, Eastern European artwork and themes running throughout, I found myself getting lost in all things Russia and could have sworn we were in Moscow.

The menu is abundant, including breakfast, all with mains from £7 – 10. Thoughtfully, they have provided definitions of the Russian words, which comes in handy when trying to make a decision. My latkes were crispy in a creamy sauce and my fiancée had a hearty Russian stew that did not disappoint.

After sampling some of the fresh desserts and listening to a few more songs, we left – knowing that next time, I won't wait so long to return to Trojka.
