What is food like on Russian trains?
Posted by , Last modified by on 20 July 2012 03:24 PM

On the long-distance passenger trains we use, there will be a restaurant carriage serving freshly cooked meals, salads, as well as snacks, drinks and cigarettes, etc. They are not open 24 hours, so do check the opening times which will be posted on the door of the restaurant carriageThe food on each train varies, from very good to ordinary, and as witmost Russian meals it is generally healthy. 

You will find at one end of each carriage there is a Samovar providing hot water for coffee, tea and hot drinks. Many people bring dry goods as soups, noodles and use the Samovar to make hot food.  

You can also buy such drinks from the carriage attendant, and before you set off our guide may be able to help you buy provisions for the train such as coffee, tea, noodles, bread, sausage, beer, bottled water and anything else you may like. 

It is also possible to buy provisions and even home cooked meals from vendors at stations along the way, who either come onto the train or will be on the platform as you pull in.
