It’s not by chance that Sakhalin is also called fish-island. Besides the island has a form of fish, the variety of fish that the island offers is impressive if not to say more. Sakhalin, in rivers of which salmon spawn, is considered one of the capitals of Russian caviar. Generally speaking, a trip to the island should be considered as a gastronomic tour. During the trip, it’s almost your duty to become a pescetarian. Once you have tasted Kamchatka crab claws here, you will see him in your dreams for a long time.
Turning to history and geography, that Asian accent gives a unique charm to the island, speaking about cuisine too. There are many excellent restaurants of Korean (descendants of Korean workers brought to the island by the Japanese during 40 years of their administration), and Japanese cuisines: the past plays its role. Must-taste dishes are bibimbap, kimchi, fern, as well as a burdock snack.
