    Olivye is known as American salad in Turkey. Some people say Russian salad as well and if you say Russian salad they will understand it but most of the people say American salad. I was shocked at first when i found out that American don't even know that. 😂

    Aside from the chicken Kiev and Napoleon cake, these are all drinking snacks - zakuski. The way to eat them is with vodka, ice cold vodka (chilled - not with ice cubes inside ffs).

    That one guy at the beginning didn’t say “let’s eat”, he said let’s/come on kuschi which kuschi isn’t even a word in my Russian dictionary - this is how it’s spelled but anything can be spelled in Russian tbh - Кущи
    Btw - eat is Ем
