Best Snack For Beer Is Right Here

Posted on September 25, 2012 by team


This post is for those who like beer and appropriate snacks. We are going to visit one market in Odessa, Ukraine, to be more precise – it’s fish department. This place has been rather popular since the times of the USSR. It has a special atmosphere.

Here one can buy stockfish, dried fish, smoked fish, salted fish…

The market appeared almost 200 years ago – in 1827. They built a square for market trading.

The sellers are often pushy and it’s hard to pass by without buying anything.

“How can I choose fresh fish?” – if you ask this question in Odessa, you’ll probably get this answer: “It’s fresh if it still moves. Other ways to determine it do not work.”

This is Odessa sprat.

People who live in Odessa like to joke:
– How much is that horse?
– But it’s a chicken, madam.
– I am looking at the price!

Each of these fishes screams “eat me!”

You want it right now and right there.

This is bream.

Local cats are rather mdoest. They will ask for fish first. This one was sitting like this for ten minutes.

Some dialogue at the market:

– Is your flounder still alive?
– No, it has died already.
– That’s why the price surprised me that much! Are you collecting money for its funeral?

Sea roach will be perfect for your table.

Dried bullheads are hanging.

A saleswoman aged 50: “Hey, mister! Why are you shooting my fish only? Better look at me! I am pretty and divorced. Are YOU married?”

That’s the middle of the post, you may open another can of beer now, before we continue.

This is smoked garfish.

Sprat lies in the box.

“Cherkassk fish “maran” with caviar. Salted and very tasty.”

For those who want to stay slim – shrimps rich with calcium and protein.

Taste the razorback with beer.

Zander is not worse.

Almost nobody buys a little bit, everyone buys much.

This market is a place you have to visit if you came to Odessa. Here you will feel the spirit of the city best.

    Sounds like a lot of people in Odessa/Ukraine have the “capitalism overcharged me” blues.

    Part of capitalism is pretending you are getting cheated. Part of communism is pretending you are not!

    Man, now I want some fish! What’s that dark red fish that’s sliced up, #14 from the bottom? The other one (the opening shot)looks a lot like salmon, what kind is that?

    We have a high Russian population (I loves me some Baltika 9!)here. There might be a chance I could find it here, if not imported frozen.
