Even on vacation I can not pass by interesting projects. Ah very wanted to tell you about some institutions. Moreover, Eva Grill externally passed in June “Breakfast” and needs a breather. I’ll take over for a while. And I’ll start with a new place on Karl Marx — “Pete bar”, an institution, the appearance of which I was really happy.
“Pita bar” resembles a small cafe in a European town.

The man and about the menu tells the guests, and prepares for them, and the opinion of the dishes learns. Continue reading
