The 5 new age Asian diners in Saint Petersburg

Yuva

Yuva is a low-key place with some exciting food situation: massive portions, fresh ingredients, and strong pure flavors. You should try Indonesian nasi goring with shrimp paste (≈4$), pho bo made with bone broth (≈4$) and classic pad thai (≈5$). Although simple and meant for a quick lunch, the eatery is generally quite alright. Their wooden Bali cats can be bought as souvenirs.

Kim&Chi

This Korean street food eatery has an open kitchen that looks like a food truck. The menu chimes in with 50 choices of street food, like stir-fried rice cakes Tteok-bokki, Korean-style burgers on steamed buns, and Bibimbap (≈7$) — a runny yolk with traditional fermented veggies and rice. Pair your noodles and tempura with Korean corn tea, coconut refreshments or slightly alcoholic makgeolli. Dragons painted on the ceiling and bright yellow shades add a nice touch.

Nakatika

This establishment was opened by 2 friends who are fans of all things Japanese and have been visiting Japan frequently. Mimicking izakaya (a Japanese pub for after-work drinking) this place has a surprisingly vast menu of authentic Japanese dishes. It took okonomiyaki (≈5-6$) from fast-food and nabe (≈4-10$) from home cuisine, although sushi (≈2$) and rolls (≈2-9$) are westernized to fit the local taste. This is a comfy and friednly place that one would stop by on the way home.

Joly Woo

Joly Woo blends Vietnamese and vegetarian cuisines and serves the most healthy Asian food. The menu includes several Vietnamese soups, noodles with various toppings and traditional nems made of meat and rice paper. No fried stuff and even their pho soup is turned into vegetarian pho chai with tofu and shiitake (≈4$). Mango and coconut milk smoothies (≈4$) are marvelous. The eco concept is reflected in the interior with natural materials, green accents and living plants, leaving a very pleasant impression.

The signature dish here is taiyaki, a Japanese fish-shaped waffle (≈2$) that comes in ten sweet and four savory options. The must try is the bean paste taiyaki, the most popular one in Japan. For drinks, try one of their unusual lattes (≈3$): bean paste, chicory, matcha green tea or pieces of coffee jelly.
