What I ate in Moscow! City Space Restaurant. Awesome View. Awesome Burger.


Okay so here’s a question. What do you think my first meal in Moscow would be? Authentic Russian Food? Hell no.

It would a burger.

A kick ass burger, at a kick ass restaurant that is called City Space. This bar / lounge / restaurant is located on the top floor of the Swissotel that I was staying in. Truth be told I came here because I was damn tired after at 12+ hour flight to Moscow. I just wanted to eat somewhere close, and since this place came highly recommended by my peers I decided to try it out.

I naturally, ordered the burger. As you can tell from the picture this was super good, and super delicious. Yep, it’s not of those foods where it only looks good but is shitty to eat. It looks good, tastes good. Super recommend it.

And yes that’s a Cesar drink…
