We’ve already covered how to say a variety of drinks in Russian. Now let’s move on to the healthy stuff.. Salad anyone? The Russian word for salad is another word that sounds very similar to the English version. Watch the video and you’ll be just about ready to get anything you need at a restaurant in Russia.

Yes, there’s a drop of red sauce, but that’s not mozzalle cheese, it’s cheddar, for crying out loud. The people here, they just don’t get it. I still love ‘em, but their pizza needs work. Anyone want to move here and open a restaurant?
