While looking for more Ukrainian restaurants near me I came across the menu at Rondel Ukrainian. First there were the usual listings: pickles, dumplings, and salads. But then I saw something that made me determined to visit. There was an item on the menu called One Big Potato Pancake. Unfortunately it’s better in name than in practice — the oversize pancake is folded over on itself and covered in a mushroom and sour cream sauce, making what should be a crisp texture soft and kind of soggy. The flavors are good, but the texture is a bit of a disappointment.
Still, there are enough vegetarian option on the menu to make a return visit a possibility. In the meantime, though, I’ll stick with Cafe Glechik.
