Gastronom No. 4

If you can’t afford shopping at the delicatessen store Gastronom No. 1 or if, for political and moral reasons, you don’t want to travel to Moscow right now, I can recommend Gastronom No. 4 in Solotvyno in Ukraine instead.

It’s not quite as fancy as their flagship store, but they really have everything that you need.

I personally like the method of simply numbering shops, restaurants, schools, universities and hospitals, even law firms if you want, instead of some marketing guru having to come up with a semi-creative, but non-descriptive name. This method also boasts greater long-term durability than the strange habit of naming institutions after (more or less) famous people, which, decades later, will often spark a debate about re-naming.


About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.
