Port Café is the only place in Vladivostok where you can have a real Far Eastern culinary experience. Of course, there are many other establishments in the city that offer excellent crab and scallops dishes. However, Port Café differs from all the rest because they strive to use Far Eastern products exclusively.
At Port Café, seafood and wild plants from the boreal forest are cooked and served in many different ways: raw, steamed, grilled, pan-fried, stir-fried, smocked, salted — you name it.
"Our menu is based exclusively on Far Eastern products. After all, it’s literally in our backyard, and therefore we deliver it fresh to our dining tables„, says Edward Ryabkin, a restaurateur.We strive to bring Far Eastern “home-made„ cuisine up to the restaurant level. Traditional, often not well-known, recipes are supplemented with professional cooking technology and an exceptional presentation."
Live crabs, scallops, oysters, and sea cucumbers are waiting to be a part of the “exceptional presentation“ in large aquariums in the middle of Port Café.
The menu features dishes that can even raise the locals’ eyebrows. Elements of the different culinary traditions of the Asian-Pacific region amplify Vladivostok’s peculiarity, which is truly a kaleidoscope of different cultures — a European city in the heart of Asia.
