There could be many reasons to visit one of the suburban parts of Moscow during your stay in the city. The best reason to visit the part called Konkovo located half an hour away from the downtown and inhabited by almost 1 million people is the recently opened Chinese restaurant called Kitayskie Novosti (China News). This is one of the few Chinese restaurants in Moscow opened by a native Russian that has managed to gain the recognition from both the locals as well as the Chinese community that resides in the city.
The restaurant focuses on authentic Chinese cuisine that includes various types of dumplings (240-280 Rubles), noodles (220-620 Rubles), wok, BBQ dishes, soups and many other all at reasonable prices. One of the two restaurant’s kitchens is used to prepare meats, soups, salads and woks while the other one is used solely to produce noodles and dumplings.
All of the dishes at China News are prepared by the three cooks that have been hired directly from Taiwan to work at the restaurant under close supervision of Moscow chef Sergey Yugai whose career path includes such renowned Moscow restaurants as Galereya and Vanil.
China News is a large restaurant that can seat up to 170 guests. They say that on some evenings the number of seats occupied by the local Chinese comes close to a half which is a good sign.
