i don't see a lot of mention of Russian Family Bistro on the Chowhound San Francisco board. This is the kind of place I love finding and exploring, so I'm posting to remind the Hounds about it.
I loved this place, largely because I'm of Slavic descent and they do a really nice job with Slavic food.
I got the pierogies and Ghoulash. My mom's pierogies were boiled and these were baked. I still like boiled better but these wee nice. The meat filled were the best.
The ghoulash was excellent. The veal was fall-apart tender. A nice sauce they said they spiced up for me. The presentation was excellent (see my photo). They bring it out served in a bell pepper. To the right is fried cabbage with sour cream drizzled on it and to the left is spaetzle. Both were also tasty.
This is a place I want to come back and explore.
