Back in March 1987 at the age of 19 I was in Moscow and I stayed at the hotel Intourist. It was said to be the KGB hotel. It is still around. My former US woman complained about food they had had when they had visited the Soviet Union in the 1980s. but I must say that I ate very well at this hotel. It is my view that although Russia has banned some Western food, food still be good in Russia as it was in the Soviet Union.
