Nestled in the very heart of Arkhangelsk is a restaurant called “Treskoyed.” It is situated on Chumbarov-Luchinsky prospect, a pedestrian street-museum, and it is housed in a 19th century residence. This house is the safe-keeper of the riddles and legends of old Arkhangelsk. A dinner in “Treskoyed” not only compares with, but even in some respects, exceeds the world’s best cuisines both in terms of flavor and its health benefits. To this day, people living in Arkhangelsk and the Arkhangelsk region are called “cod-eaters” (“treskoyedy”). Natives of Arkhangelsk liked this nickname because it emphasizes Pomor authenticity and make them stand out among the greater population of the Russian North.
Over the course of many centuries, Pomor cuisine has abounded tables with all sort of fish dishes; the queen of the pomor table since times of yore has been cod. “If you do not eat cod, you have not eaten dinner” – says one proverb.
Address: Chumbarov-Luchinsky pr., 8
