Good experience

We had a very good meal at Kolobok. The service was very good and the waiter was patient with my broken Spanish. The only odd thing was that nobody appeared to speak Russian.

Russian food is not the first thing that comes to your mind where you are visiting Mexico City, however, if you live there it might be a choice for change. The restaurant is not too large, let’s say it has a “friendly” size. Dishes are well prepared and tasty, for example the ones I order: a solyanka soup made of... More

DF has no shortage of fantastic restaurants but sometimes lacks really authentic ethnic places. So my expectations for Kolobok weren't super high. But I was so pleasantly surprised! The food is legit, homemade style Russian and Ukrainian cuisine - salads with mayonnaise and pickled herring, pickles, varenyky, pelmeni, holubsti, kotlety, todo! Check it out for a nice change of pace.

This is a great restaurant. It is quite tiny but the food is just great. Try the meatball soup and the Russian Raviolli, both are exellent.

I´m ukrainian so I can judge Kolobok, basing on my the own experience with a russian food. First I wouldn´t call it a restaraunt, the place is small and the food doesn´t reach a restaraunt level, it´s tasty though. As someone said is a homemade russian food. It´s just like to visit your aunt or her friend being invited for... More
