  • Kim & Chi Korean street food in St. Petersburg, Russia
  • Kim & Chi in St. Petersburg, Russia

The Kim & Chi café finds its home in an unassuming corner of Bolshaya Konyushennaya Ulitsa, just off bustling Nevsky Prospekt and close to most of St. Petersburg's major downtown visitor attractions. Here in this basement lounge, the chefs serve up Korean cuisine and street food. Their commitment to street food culture goes beyond the items on the menu and into the interior, which even has a faux food truck as part of its décor. Kim & Chi has a dedicated street food section on its menu, which boasts interesting treats such as the Potato Tornado, an imposing tower of freshly fried potato chips served on a spit, as well as several hot dog varieties and traditional jjinppang steamed buns. For those looking for a restaurant-style meal, Kim & Chi also offers Korean entrée items more commonly found in an indoor dining setting, and the three-course set-menu lunch is a real bargain.
