www.siroedov.ru, Russian only. A standard selection of overpriced “health” type items. Order via their site, pick up things at Maly Kiselny 6, apt. 1, (495) 727-8139. Among items noticed is birch tar soap, a delightfully stinking thing.
Лусюнь (Lu-sung?), Metro Profsoyuznaya, ul. Krizhanovskogo 18, korpus 1, daily 11am to 11pm. Described by a Chinese food fan as highly authentic, with huge servings and nobody speaking either Russian or English. The menu is in pictures.
Usually the package does not have any info who makes it. The package I bough a couple of days ago at the Hare Krishna store at Selskokhozyaystvennaya 36 had it however. It is 111141 Moscow, ulitsa Elektrodnaya 10, stroyeniye 2, (495) 672 7598, 795 6937.
Run by the Hare Krishna people. Full dinner: 200 roubles ($7). Delivery near Metro VDNKh, Botanichesky Sad, Sviblovo, Otradnoye, or Vladykino is 200 roubles and free for orders over 600. Free trial dinners to offices in the area. Delivery elsewhere in Moscow is 300 roubles for orders under 1000, and free if over 1000. Delivery happens from noon to 2pm.

Indian. No, not cheap. Vegetarian-friendly at best. South end (Leninsky prospekt). See www.yell.ru/devicafebar. The site is Russian but their stuff – at least those at the fair at the Indian Embassy – speak English.
The name “Syroyedov” translates verbatim as “raw eater’s”. Recently opened. Spoken of well although I haven’t visited it myself. The address is Maly Kiselny 6, apt. 1 (Metro Trubnaya or Tvetnoy Boulevard) but from their site I gather it is not really a store but rather you are expected to place your order online, and then pick it up or have it delivered. The soaps section of their catalogue is quite extensive. The site www.syroyedov.ru is Russian only.
A cafe run by the Hare Krishna people is said to have reincarnated near Metro Botanichesky Sad. To be investigated soon.

…Visited in Dec. 2012. Not much to get excited about except for a tiny store with fake horse meat sausage. A report may be coming up.
No more tahini sauce. No more pomegranate wine. Sorry to report that it is closed. Possibly forever. Things outstanding – both good and bad – are weeded out in a drive to sterility.
Seems that it has become fashionable in the expat community, and the question of where to find made it to the list of “top 5000”.
It pops up all over the place in an unpredictable manner but you will **always** find it in the Old Believers shop at Rogozhsky Poselok 35(?).
It is next door to the Old Believers cafe which is open to the public regardless of faith and is highly recommended (a) for Russian food properly understood and (b)as a place that turns near-totally vegan Wednesdays, Fridays, and during other periods, usually preceding celebrations.
Recommended for fresh vegetables or soup of light/yellowish colour **after** it’s been poured into plates both as seasoning and decoration. Milder than regular salt.
