Tasty Ukrainian Cuisine on Khreshchatyk street in Kiev

Wow, my first (yet, only one) Kiev restaurant review and I can't remember name of this place.

Shame on me. On the other hand it was not planned to make any Kiev restaurant reviews this time, as we were having just a layover flight in Kiev before departing to NYC. See: About Tbilisi - Kiev - New York Flight by Ukrainian Airlines

Unfortunately our flight was delayed for 10 hours and instead of waiting at Borispol's airport transit area we opted to have some Kiev tour. At that included a trip to the heart of Kiev (at least I think so)

As Wikipedia have helped me to learn more now, we were wondering somewhere around Khreshchatyk (central street) in Kiev. And it was just that time to start looking for authentic Ukrainian cuisine, quickly we found ourselves in one of the backyards of beautiful Khreshchatyk street and noticed following entrance (at that stage I thought there is written name of this place)

Seemed very Ukrainian for us and we decided to enter. This was a good choice.

Mmm, the stuff I like and often feature at food blogger series - pancakes, dumplings, mashed potatoes. Yummy.

The Bottom Line

Excellent place, sad I can't remember the name. But you can help me. Do you know this place? Leave a comment!

I doubt we spent even USD 10 here for two person meal. Highly recommend!
