Ukraine: Poltava Galushki

Poltava is famous for its Poltava Galushki – a meal as Ukrainian as borsch or vareniki. There is even a monument in Poltava, dedicated to Galushki (see previous post). We sought out the best place to try galushki – Komora restaurant – thy claims to be the top and most authentic places to make galushki. Galushki ate akin to dumplings without filling, just pieces of dough, that can be served alone with sour cream or butter or with added meat and salo or even some stewed greens. There was even a galushki desert. And the restaurant was loaded with funny pictures about a fictional Stepan Galushka!
