Looking at this snack someone can say: “In Soviet Russia beer snack eats you!” And he might be right to some degree.
I would have thought that only the japanese would have eaten something like that.
dried and solted fish is a russian analog of japs sushi
Maybe it’s some cultural crossover. Russia and Japan share a border.
How much beer does one have to drink before they even consider eating one of those? What kind of fish are they anyway? Looks like a small Baracuda but if it’s from Russia my guess would be a type of Pike.
Точно, там же написано! А крутая рыбка, между прочим.
Smelt doesn’t have such teeth.
Russians love this type of snack. Dried and salted fish, vobla. They even eat the dried fish other people buy for their cat in the pet shop.
When I visited Moscow in 2003 with my friends, I had a LOT of “vobla” and vodka. But in 2006 I couldn’t find it anywhere (not vodka). Thinking of going this year. Can anyone tell me where I can buy some? I wanna take some back home with me. – Its cheaper cheaper than sushi
Wondering what “vobla” was I found this:
That isn’t exactly in my price range.
Vobla is sold mostly at food markets, but you can also find it at some restaurants (though rarely). The one I’m sure of is Tinkoff bar.
Can you recommend some good food markets wich I could reach by metro?
You’re somewhat wrong about finding vobla. Maybe, it’s because vobla is a season food (it’s not available all year round). See my post below about where to find it.
BTW, I’m eating vobla right now, though it’s not bought – a friend of mine went fishing to lake Seliger last month and gave me some dried fish! That lake is very famous, if you’re a fisherman.
I need help! A Russian friend of mine just game me some vobla, but i have no idea what to do with it. Any serving suggestions/basic info that would help me with these things?
I realy don’t think I said “vobla with vodka”.
well you made it sound like it but you’re right it’s not your words….i did not mean to misinterpret
vobla & vodka – its a bomzh party )))
that’s too wierd even for russia… may be some lowlifes still do that, i’m not sure…
Yes, also in the U.S. smelt is enjoyed in Detroit and around the Great Lakes area.
Smelt is really good. But I never drink beer so this is a rear purchase for me. BTW: I drink no alcohol at all
A rear purchase? I don’t think you are supposed to put it in your rear
I did not realise your wear not a native English speaker, so it should be me apologising.
British humour sometimes fails……….
You don’t drink alcohol/vodka!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!?!?
What is going on in Russia??
I drink your vodka, I DRINK IT UP!
You did not get around much then.
this is just … SICK AND WRONG
They look tastier than pork rinds
its my foto. I made it on my kitchen. The fish name on russian is Zubar (big Korushka)
by the way, i like pork chips madly. My frend from Wolfhampton give me a copl bags.
ya lublu nashi zakuski.ya kak to tut rakov el,zaebis’.s pivom)))
Yeah great fish ! http://savepic.ru/15138.gif
This is Igor’s favorite driving snack.
In Maine we eat them battered and fried. Tasty, with the heads on, don’t even clean em out. And a lot of beer.
У нас такую ловят и сами вялят! Классная рыба! Мне очень нравится с пивом! Но у нас она жирнее. Я из Приморья, Находка.
Vobla is actually the Russian word for the species of fish called Roach. This fish is caught and dried in salt then washed and air dried. Other species may also be used, but they are considered hybrid versions of the original. If anyone would like to know how to make Vobla, then drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and i will reply with instructions on how to make it. I will be posting instructions on how to make it on my website in the near future ( http://www.tsarina-imperial-dacha.com ). It may be ugly to look at, but when eating it with beer it takes on a whole new look, and if you drink enough beer you might get lucky.
