Join us in Lviv, Ukraine for a Ukrainian food review as we sample a number of different traditional ukrainian dishes such as banosh and varenyky along with eating pork leg and a ukrainian style cheesecake for dessert just to name a few.

Ukrainian Food Review - 5 traditional dishes to eat in Lviv, Ukraine:

It is lunchtime here in Lviv (Львів) and we tried to find the most traditional Ukrainian restaurant that we could and that is how we ended up at Seven Piggies (Сім поросят) and yeah I can tell you taxidermy is really popular. Lots of stuffed animals.

She brought us something called Banusz and I believe this is some kind of sheep's cheese (brynza) with like looks like bacon so I'm just going to try it on bread. Sam with the fancy waterwheel right behind him. Right behind me. Alright, time to try this. Banosh (Банош).

We also ordered wine. And we got a bread basket. And yeah, usually I found when you order a bread baskets here in Ukraine (Україна) you get both brown and white bread which is cool.

We got a Cabernet it is made from the Ukraine and most of the wine from Ukraine apparently comes from Odessa.

We've ordered something called Kremslyky (КРЕМЗЛИКИ В ГЛЕЧИКУ) and I need to break this baby. I can't actually lift the bread basket off.

So in here we've got some pork. We have potato pancakes (КРЕМЗЛИКИ В ГЛЕЧИКУ) . We have this like creamy sauce with dill and carrots and garlic and it all looks really really good.

I've now had it about 3 or 4 times and it is dish now that whenever we go out and order like traditional Ukrainian food (українська кухня). It is a stample.

They have actually named this dish after the restaurant and it is the 7 pigs and it is a huge pork leg (ГОМІЛОЧКА “СІМ ПОРОСЯТ”). Oh, this meat looks so tender.

Actually it is not a cheese sauce it is a mustard sauce. Oh, it has got a kick to it. Yeah. Totally different than what I thought.

Another side dish we ordered is Varenyky (ПЕЛЬМЕНІ “ВІД ВУЙКА КОЦЬО”) which are the dumplings but these ones are black. Yeah. So we haven't had this before. It looked interesting. Yeah, we've never tried the black dumplings (ПЕЛЬМЕНІ “ВІД ВУЙКА КОЦЬО”). All I know is that they are stuffed with pork and veal.

Thankfully dessert is a smaller portion than everything else because yeah we're stuffed. We're stuffed.

And this is like a Ukrainian cake style of cheesecake (ТОРТ “СИРНИК”). And it has got like a chocolate topping and I think I've been able to see what might potentially be dried pieces of fruit in the middle.

Cheesecake with raisins.

That is so good. Because like this is just like pure cheesecake. There isn't really a bottom layer. It is just pure dense thick cheesecake (ТОРТ “СИРНИК”). Just the way I like it.
