Sometimes it seems that some restaurant owners don't want people to find their venues. Like, to get to Mashita you need to find the right turn from Bolshoi Avenue of the Petrogradskaya Storona (under the sign Rozoviy Krolik), then take your right and trust your intuition. Determined but soaking wet (oh, St.Pete rains) traveler will be rewarded with a generous bowl of hot ramen with veggies, chicken or pork. It is the place's specialty though it also offers salads and soups. But beware: you could hardly eat these thick noodles in silence. If you are still hungry take a couple of onigiri with salmon or pickled plum. A good hearty lunch will cost you 500 roubles, while a traditional Buddhist cat will wave you goodbye. Just be sure to take cash, their card acceptance policy is really sporadic.
