Russian Cold Soup Okroshka
The cold soup Okroshka. In fact, I had never tried before a cold soup and it was so interesting. In other words more than be a tasty soup instead is something more refreshing. Actually, Okroshka is usually served in summer with the raw veggies, mostly with beef and kvass a traditional fermented beverage made from rye bread that is used as a soup. In short, it’s very refreshing ideally to avoid hot weather.
Marrow Bones a delicious entry at Cococo Restaurant. Certainly, it was the second of the salty dishes that I loved more here. Because, the first one is the Rabbit Dumplings.

Keep in mind at Cococo Restaurant
The menu is based about Russian culture, literature and poetry by telling tales of Russia’s history through his dishes, if you understand this, perhaps you will have a much clear a idea of each presentation of the plates.
As a result, I highly recommend what you must try here is, the main Rabbit Dumplings, both desserts my mother’s favorite flower and also Anna Pavlova. Surely, these gave me the most nice flavors. Besides I can put also in the list the marrow bones with the bread but I checked it and seems is not in the menu anymore. As we know always restaurant are changing its plates from time to time and this is the beautiful thing of the kitchen because if it is not, start to become boring right?.
