a few weeks ago we went to our first ukrainian restaurant and i don't know it's name! but it's all authentic ukrainian food, and so inexpensive. our family spent six bucks and got a huge meal. heaven.
this is the entrance. i love the old world feeling.
conveniently in the open so that you can wash your hands before you eat. my kinda place.
steven and i are fighting for the last piece of potato. the white dumpling things in yellow sauce are a beef-filled dough in butter. there is also a sweet version of that called verniky (not sure how to spell it) but they fill it with smatana (think american sour cream mixed with greek yoghurt) and a sour cherry.
okay, closest up is a salad. here "salad" does not mean lettuce and ranch. it means a combination of vegetables and starches with sauce, in this case, shredded cabbage, corn, ham, a vegetable i have never had before in a sweet and peppery sauce. yum! directly behind that is borsch, a staple food in ukraine. it's red because of the beets... dwight schrute would be proud. to the right of that are potatoes and a breaded piece of chicken with a buttery sauce inside.
and a happy, full-bellied family.
