Full description
The main beauty of the Kiev Gastro Tour is the possibility to fall in love with Ukraine just by trying out its national dishes. The first dish you’re going to love is borsch. It’s a sour soup with meat, beetroot, cabbage, onions, potatoes, and tomatoes. Usually, it’s served with sour cream and garlic pampushky (tasty doughnuts). The ingredients of borsch may vary from one territory to another, but you're sure to fall in love with this dish from the first spoonful.

The next dish you’ll try during your Gastro Tour is varenyky. You may have heard of these filled dumplings also known as pierogi. The most popular fillings are potato, sauerkraut, ground meat, cottage cheese, and fruit. Depending on the filling, varenyky are served with melted butter, fried onions, and sour cream.

Besides appeasing your hunger, you’ll also try out some special treats. One of the most unusual things to try is salo, the traditional Slavic food that consists of cured slabs of fatback. This dish is served with onions, salt, garlic, and pickles. People often use it as a chaser when drinking homemade liqueurs. Finish this tour with a dessert at one of the best Kiev restaurants. This tour is a perfect choice for foodie travelers.
