Kosher Pirate has opened within Moscow’s market, Kosher Gourmet, as the Russian capital’s first kosher sushi restaurant. The eatery will serve many different types of sushi, as well as pizza, Solyanka soup, Caesar salad, and Uzbeki dumplings.
Menu items will also include Asian and Middle Eastern dishes, including a fusion of the two, like shakshuka sushi.
Many of its sushi items are named after Israeli places, including cities with many Russian-speaking immigrants such as Ashdod, Kiryat Yam, Netanya, Eilat and Haifa.
A tuna-avocado roll weighing approximately half a pound costs under $4.50 at Kosher Pirate. The restaurant also does deliveries in the Moscow area. It is located halfway between the Marina Roscha Synagogue and the nearby Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in northern Moscow.
Kosher Pirate is certified by Kosher Russia, Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar.
