The Blini Hut - "Authentic Russian Food"

ErikSatie | Apr 8, 2000 02:29 PM

Stumbled upon this fast-foodesque joint and was excited to see a post on the front window that said "Best Authentic Russian Food".
So I asked the head guy there what he thought was the tastiest dish they had and he happily recommended the "double chicken sandwhich" -- I was a little surprised.

So what the heck, I decided to give it a whirl. I also got a wrapped cabbage dish I think called "golupszdi". Anyways, then they asked me if I wanted fries with that - no joke. The cabbage dish was decent, albeit it a tad bland. The chicken sandwhich was too Americanish and a bit rubbery,nothing I couldn't get at Wendy's. I couldn't even finish the sandwhich it was so dull in flavor, a real dissapointment. For the most part, I would skip Blini Hut at All COSTS!!! Wretched, wretched, vile food.

Have I been terribly misconcieved of what decent, "real" authentic Russian Food is?
