I had an amazing experience at Taste of Russia and want to spread the word. I went there for lunch yesterday & was beyond impressed. First, my friend and I shared an appetizer of cabbage dumplings & potato dumplings (vareniki). Then we each had a bowl of hearty borscht. It was so good, I would've been happy with just having more borscht for my meal...but I'm glad I didn't! For my entree, I had a fried pork chop with mustard sauce and a side of mashed potatoes. I loved it so much that I rarely lifted my head from my plate. The pork was perfectly encrusted and the mustard sauce that accompanied it was tangy & spicy (in a horseradish kind of way). A good way to enjoy this dish is to put a little mashed potato with a bit of pork & then dip it in the mustard sauce....WOW, truly amazing! For dessert we shared two big Russian-cheese filled blintzes with a side of blackberry sauce. The added bonus was, after my four course feast, my total ticket came out to $15.37! We did split the app & dessert, but when was the last time you had such a giant meal for such a great price?? The only drawback was the speed of service. We waited quite a while to be greeted & between courses, but it was definitely worth the wait. On the other hand our server was very attentive and pleasant. I can't wait to go back!!
