(...)  You will find traditional Ukrainian dishes, without a European gloss (as is the fashion these days)--"Katsap" salad; "Ukraine" salad; noodles mixed with cottage cheese and sour cream; vareniki (dumplings) with cheese, potato and mushroom, or cherry; "golubtsi" (vine leaves stuffed with rice and meat); buckwheat kasha with crackling; fritters; Chicken Kiev; pork roll; "Poltavsky" and "Chernigovsky" borshch; kapustnyak; deruni.  It is not possible to list them all--we advise you to go and try for yourself.
