We also had vegetarian borscht with a hearty dollop of sour cream. If you’ve read my previous posts, you’ll know that I’m not a big fan of broth type soups and I guess up until now, I’d never had borscht made properly. This borscht was hearty and thick, with large chunks of beets, a fantastic soup for a cold winter’s day.
|Bison Short Ribs (*faint*)|
The man human had the slow cooked bison short ribs and said they were tender, moist, succulent and melted in your mouth, with the balsamic glaze coating each morsel giving it a mildly sweet taste. I can't say I liked the glint in his eye as I glared at him while he ate. The warm roasted garlic and rosemary potato salad was extremely garlicky, garlic, which is yet another Ukrainian staple.
We capped off the evening with two divine desserts, a crème brulee that had a thin, crispy shell, sitting atop warm, creamy custard. Then a chocolate pate made with dark chocolate that was rich, melted in your mouth, and disappeared in a blink.
We will definitely be back to try other things on the menu such as the rabbit, that were sadly sold out during our visit.
