    Two quick points:
    -I'm not sure what kind of biscuit he's referring to (there's the tea-and-biscuits kind but also the large, fluffy breakfast kind -- I think yours is the first kind).
    -Сосиски specifically refers to хот-доги methinks.

    I am assuming he is referring to "tea and biscuits" kind because he uses the word "prawns" for "shrimp" so he probably means "biscuits' for "cookies".

    And let's not forget my favourite, вИпички - turnovers.

    Someone should check my spelling again on that!

    Hi thanks you guys for the help.

    DDT: Yes it was about biscuits (as in tea and biscuits - I'm from England after all!)

    Only 2 more to go now:

    Brocoli
    Kebab (as in an English kebab shop)

    If not, dont worry, I will just leave them out of the list.

    Thanks

    broccoli = брокколи, капуста брокколи, капуста спаржевая
    kebab = кебаб, шашлык, жаркое

    DDT, I'm correcting your accents:

    цветнАя
    чернИка

    and spelling:

    вЫпечки
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    Actually, clam is not "моллюск", but a sertain type of mollusc, which is not very common in Russia, that's why most of the people don't know the russian name of it ("разинька"), and use the english word - "клем" or "клам".

    Doesn't "сок" mean "Juice" and not gravy?

    Also, (and this is just an issue of formatting), but the first listing's header is in both Russian and English, while the following are all in english. (Мясо и Meat...)

    You forgot Чикен. Do you want fries with that?
    You can set up your own franchise in Moscow:

    You might be able to make a lot of money since it's so popular, but if I understood it correctly that seems REALLY steep -- 40K$ for startup franchise fee, 6% of all pre-tax profits in royalties PLUS 5% of all pre-tax profits have to be used for advertising? That of course says nothing of the startup costs, the building, the employees, the equipment, the insurance, the taxes, and of course, the infamous штрафы.

    Yeah, they didn't mention anything about крыша. You up late Б, aintya?

    Anyway here's some comments about the website.

    Some of these have prolly been noted already concerning your website:

    сырой is a quality rather than a kind of meat.

    картошка spelling.
    свёкла does anyone use the word "beetroot" for "beet"? Is that BrE?

    огурец cuke , you used the pl. form

    молочное or maybe молочные продукты for dairy

    if яйцо is egg, then гриб must be mushroom.

    бутерброд is sandwich
    you forgot all the pancake types for breadfast

    сахар is not a drink
    many of the things you have under Sauces aren't.

    What? Pizza an international food? It's as American as apple pie!

    блюдо. You gotta watch out fer mistakes like that.

    вилка
    And ending with a word that reminds me of one of my favorite Yiddish expressions, Hak mir nisht ken tschaynik.
