“Vegetarian cheeseburger” and “vegetarian hot dog” have been noticed in snack bars of more sophisticated filling stations of Kandalaksha and Apatity. The difference fromt the real thing is that there is no burger in the hamburger and no weinie in the hot dog. Not a soya burger. Not an immitation something. Just nothing.
Here is an old Soviet “anekdot” on the subject:
Russian waitress to a foreign tourist, acting under instructions to create a proper impression: “What would sir like for breakfast?”
Client: “What are my options?”
Waitress: “Yes or No.”
