Restaurantes (XVIII). Duet – Restaurants (XVIII). Duet


Duet es un restaurante-club nocturno, que ha sido la base obligada de muchas de nuestras “operaciones” diarias. Se trata de un restaurante pequeño (apenas una docena de mesas) localizado cerca de la refinería y gestionado de manera muy poco productiva.

La variedad inicial de la carta es importante, pudiendo elegir entre una gran cantidad de comidas, de cocina rusa y similares. No obstante, la primera sorpresa que se lleva uno en Duet es que, pida lo que pida, puede que media hora después te digan que no tienen. El menú diario ha ido cambiando con el tiempo y hay días que ofrecen comida de muy poca calidad, llegando al aprobado raspado el mejor de los días. No obstante, la calidad sube cuando uno pide cosas de la carta, siendo el pollo “flamingo” (carne rebozada, rellena de queso, mantequilla y champiñones) una de las estrellas más populares del restaurante. Las ensaladas de la carta suelen ser aceptables, aunque de calidad inestable. Los platos principales son meramente admisibles (porque algo hay que comer) en el mejor de los casos, pobres en presentación y sin gracia alguna.

El servicio es otro de los puntos flojos de este restaurante, puesto que es una lotería. El servicio es lento, irregular, rayando en lo indolente y, a veces, eficaz sin llegar al agobio.

Ciertamente Duet es uno de los restaurantes que, dadas nuestras circunstancias, no podemos evitar (aunque lo intentamos) dado que está cerca del trabajo, si bien perdérselo si vienes a Khabarovsk no supone ningún trauma, todo lo contrario.

De noche se convierte en club nocturno con baile en barra americana.

Eso sí, hay gente que celebra allí sus bodas. No quiero imaginármelo.

IMG_3395Duet is a restaurant/night club that has been our forced camp base in many of our daily “operations”. It is a very small restaurant (barely a dozen tables) located very close to the refinery and managed in a very unproductive way.

The initial variety shown in the menu is pretty large, being able to choose from a wide range of food, from Russian cuisine and similar. However, the first surprise in Duet is that, whatever you order, it may happen that half an hour later they tell you they do not have that dish available. The daily menu has been changing from time to time and some days they offer food of really low quality, hardly reaching an acceptable mark in the best days. Nonetheless, quality rises when you ask things from the menu, being the chicken “flamingo” (breaded meat, stuffed with cheese, butter and mushrooms) one of the most popular dishes of the restaurant. Salads from the menu are usually acceptable, though quality is unstable. Entrees are merely admissible (because you have to eat something) in the best of the cases, poor in presentation and without any charm.

Service is another of the weak points of this restaurant, as it is a lottery. Service is slow, irregular, even indolent, and sometimes, effective without feeling overrun.

Certainly, Duet is one of those restaurants that, under our circumstances, we cannot avoid (though we try) as it is close to our workplace, though losing it if you come to Khabarovsk will make you no harm, but on the contrary.

By night it becomes a night club with lap dancing in American bar.

But oh, yes, there are people celebrating their weddings there. I do not want to imagine it.
