The Eastern Economic Forum (EEF-2023) is currently being held in Vladivostok, on Russky Island. This is a big corporate event about business, technology, culture and a little bit about politics (this time without world leaders, but President Vladimir Putin will speak at the plenary session). The event was large-scale: delegations from ten foreign countries arrived. Several thousand people gather daily on the FEFU campus (this exemplary territory became the forum platform).

And they all need to be fed.

After all, the forum is like love: it comes and goes, but you always want to eat. So what do they invite guests to?

VEF’s most modern restaurant is called “Deck 12”, after the number of the floor on which it is located. A property with views of Ajax Bay and the Russian Bridge. VIP guests will eat here: governors, mayors, senior officials of ministries and senior managers.

For breakfast they serve pancakes with black caviar (3,900 rubles), cheesecakes (1,100 rubles) and shakshuka, that is, scrambled eggs with tomatoes (1,500 rubles). The cheapest is oatmeal with soaked apples (950 rubles).
