Две палочки ‘Dve Palochki’ is a chain of sushi restaurants in St Petersburg (&Moscow), there is one on literally almost every corner of Невский prospeckt ‘Nevsky Prospect’, including one just around the corner from Liden&Denz! This place does very good sushi and boasts one of the biggest menus I have ever seen, also offering pizza, burger, pasta… you name it! But as the name would suggest (translates literally to ‘chopsticks’) sushi is its specialty. Many are open 24/7, offering good wifi- it’s the kind of place that’s great to go for a group lunch after class, meet friends for dinner, or dine solo (& bring a laptop). If you discover that the chopsticks in your packet are gold- congratulations! You have a free meal! This is my personal go-to when I find myself craving sushi (a minimum of once a week). Reasonably priced and the menu is also written in English. Did I mention they also do takeaway?

Its funky décor, bright colors and relaxed atmosphere, make it a great alternative to other less casual sushi bars in town. Perfect for groups who perhaps cant decide on a specific cuisine, and for those of you who may want a tad more spice in your curry.
