Tuesday’s Treats #200

Paperlo

Location: Kyiv, Ukraine

This place was has just the neatest decor and atmosphere. The staff is friendly and some can speak a little English. The food is delicious, and again, the decor is just really cool. (Lots of pics on this one; so, get ready!)

The food was phenomenal, and the menu was completely in Ukrainian; so, our friends told us things on the menu and ordered for us. As you can see, we ate like kings.

We started with a cheese plate that was delicious. It had four different types of cheeses and honey and ground coffee to dip. Now, I know, that sounds crazy, but it was SO good! They also had brought a type of dried beef, like beef jerky. It had a little kick of spice, and it was great. Our friend ordered a plate of, what I would call, bruschetta. I’m not sure what it is called there, and I don’t eat raw tomatoes all that much, but she said it was delicious.

My husband (and our oldest) ordered a burger that was about as big as his head! He had to squish it to try to eat it, and he eventually just eat it with a fork and knife. 😂 I ordered a steak and grilled veggies, and it was scrumptious. Our youngest ordered a cheese pizza. It was different, as it didn’t have red sauce on it, but it was very tasty.

We also ordered some drinks like (non-alcoholic) mojitos. One had ginger and lemon and the other was apple. They both were good; I liked the ginger and lemon best.

We had so much food; we were stuffed and couldn’t finish it all! We so enjoyed this food, and we look forward to visiting again when we return to Ukraine.

The Website appears to be in Ukrainian, but I didn’t peruse all through time see if there is a language selection. They also have a FB page.

Here are some more pics of the cool decor.

NY Street Pizza

Location: Lviv, Ukraine

*My apologies for the delay in this post! Had some trouble on the site and couldn’t post media. 😜 We’re back up and running smoothly, I hope! 😉

Before you read this review, you can check out the pics and my previous review here. We visited this restaurant again while in Ukraine, and it was just as amazing as the first time!

We had a few different items this time; so, I thought I’d share those as well.

The Greek salad is phenomenal, and it’s served with such class!

The apple strudel is so delicious. Last time, we had the molten chocolate cake, which is still scrumptious; however, if your wanting something a little different from chocolate, this is a must!

Friday Fun Day … on Monday

Oops! I didn’t get the Friday Fun Day post up on time, because I was flying home that day. So, today I thought I’d share a few pics from that wonderful trip and plane flight. 😊✈️🇺🇸🇺🇦 Can you guess where I was?? (NO cheating by looking up the flag!😉😂)

Tuesday’s Treats #159

Lviv Coffee Manufacturer

Location: Lviv, Ukraine

This place was the coolest! They don’t really “mine” the coffee, as coffee cannot be mined, but the set up and the tour through the “mine” is just the neatest presentation. When we came out of the mine, it opened up into this great big warehouse type room, and they had a concert going on. You just found a seat, and this band, Ukrainian, mind you, was singing English Christmas songs and Golden Oldies, like Elvis renditions and “Johnny B. Good.” I told you, it was the coolest! So, we sat in this coffee house, in the middle of Lviv, at Christmas, sipping our lattes and cappuccinos while listening to these Ukrainian speaking dudes wail on their guitars and drums, singing perfect renditions of “You’re Nothin’ But a Hound Dog,” “Pretty Woman” and many others. It was definitely a night to remember! So cool!! 😎

The Ocean Plaza Food Court

Location: Kiev, Ukraine

I’m sorry that I do not remember the name of this restaurant, but it is upstairs in the Ocean Plaza, just above the aquarium. We were able to sit at a nice table with comfortable chairs and gaze down at the aquarium. Such a fun experience!

I ordered a latte and asked the waitress if I could get vanilla or caramel syrup. She asked if I’d like caramel or chocolate. I said, “Definitely!” Oh, it was so delicious!!

My husband got the salmon with rice, and I ordered the grilled veggies, because I wasn’t terribly hungry. The veggies were a little different twist with the latte, but they were good anyway. My husband said the salmon was really good!

Because I can’t remember the name of the restaurant, I don’t have the website, but I will post the mall website.

Pleasantville Bar & Pub

Location: Zhytomyr, Ukraine

This place was amazing! It was so amazing that we are here twice during our travels!Comfortable seating, friendly staff, and delicious food is everything you will find here.

The pickle platter appetizer is delicious! The cucumbers are fresh and marinated with no vinegar; so, the pickles are quite different than American pickles, but they are so yummy. The pickled cabbage doesn’t taste like what you’d think. You’d think it would be sauerkraut, but it’s more like homemade coleslaw. It’s rather tasty.

The steak, chicken and any other meat you choose is grilled to perfection. My favorite were the veggies. Oh my! Delicious! We also tried a little dessert.

They didn’t have our first choice; so, we tried a little mousse cake. Little is the operative word! It was tiny, but it was rather tasty…maybe not my favorite dessert, but it was good. For a little bite, it packs a god punch! Lol!

I also ordered a Mojito (non-alcoholic beverage). It has a mix of lemon, lime, ginger and mint. A creative presentation and very tasty.

Here is their website for more information and menu options.

Churassco Grill & Wine

Location: Lviv, Ukraine

We ate here the last time we were in Lviv, and because it was so delicious, we had to make a repeat on our most recent trip! The food was just as yummy as before, and I actually got a better picture of that incredible cheese bread I told you about last night! (Here is my previous post.)

We repeated the cheese plate, the cheese bread, the steak and the grilled veggies. Everything was incredible, and the staff was just as helpful as before. This will definitely be a repeat every time we are in Lviv.

Here’s a clip of their menu, but you can find more on their website. It seems there isn’t an official website, but rather, a Facebook and foursquare site; so, these are the links I will share.

*Note: there are two locations, and their description is quite different. One is Grill & Wine and the other is Grill & Beer. We went to the Grill & Wine.

Here is what the front entrance looks like (at night); so, you can tell the difference in the two restaurants. 😉

*My apologies for not having this posted on Tuesday! I did not realize I didn’t have a current one scheduled! 😉

The pickled cabbage does not taste like you would think either; it is not like sauerkraut. It is more like fresh coleslaw.

The chicken, steak, and any other meat you choose is grilled to perfection. My favorite were the grilled veggies. Oh my. Delicious! We also tried a little dessert. They didn’t have our first choice; so, we tried the little mouse cake. Little is the operative word. Lol! Yet, it does pack a little punch. It was yummy; although, it’s probably not my favorite.

I also ordered a non-alcoholic Mohito, and it was delicious! It has lemon, lime, mint and ginger, I think. A creative presentation and very tasty.

Tuesday’s Treats #151

Churrasco

Location: Lviv, Ukraine

The atmosphere is this restaurant is quaint and comfortable. The food is delicious, and the staff is knowledgeable of the English language for those who have need. This is not a traditional Ukrainian restaurant, but rather, a Georgian restaurant. Our translator and friend, who is originally from Moldova, was very excited and impressed by the food prepared here.

Because I have a few different pics here of food, and they’re a little different than “full-fledged-entree pics,” I am going describe them each. The first is the grilled veggies. Oh. My. Word. These are amazing!! Let’s just say, I hate eggplant, and there were two big slices that I devoured! Yum!!

The second pic is the chicken wings my son ordered. He loves them, and he said the difference between these and many American wings was that they weren’t greasy. The green, creamy substance in the bowl are mashed potatoes. I’m really not sure why they’re green, but they were rather tasty, albeit the green coloring took a bit to get passed. 😂

The third pic is the cheese filled dumplings some of our party ordered. They absolutely loved these. I liked them pretty good; although, I believe I enjoyed my veggies more!

The last pic is one piece of the cheesy stuffed bread that just seemed to melt in your mouth!! It was so good that I’ve still had cravings for this; since, we’ve come home!! Oh. My. Goodness! It was delicious!! I believe, I could have made a big pig out of myself and eaten the whole basket of this bread! Yet, I restrained myself and only ate two pieces! 😂

It doesn’t look like they have an actual website; so, I will leave the google search here for location and contact information.
