we went to brighton beach this morning and to PRIMROSKI for the $5.98 lunch special. you get an app, a main and coffee or tea.
we got ukranian beef borscht soup and karcho (rice & lamb soup). the borscht was peppery and both were delicious.
for mains we got meat blintzes and salyanka lamb. you get two styles of blintzes rolled with the same finely ground and spiced meat along with a dollop of sour cream. both of these were filling and fine, but the soups were the highlight.
i would rec PRIMROSKI for visitors and those looking for a cheap filling lunch after a day at the beach. it sure seems stable over the years. M&I GROCERY has a cafeteria upstairs and is another brighton fav of mine.
