Therefore, in order to immediately feel the spirit of Odessa, it is worthwhile to come here, bargain, taste everything possible and, of course, buy real Black Sea crustaceans. Be sure, after asking a question about the freshness of the fish, you will immediately receive the answer: ‘What are we talking about, exactly just from the sea!’.
