Add to favorites
  • Begin your gastronomic journey at a local restaurant known for its traditional Ukrainian cuisine. Step into the cozy, bustling spot, and the aroma of stewing Borsch and baking Varenyky fills the air.
  • Enjoy a feast of traditional Ukrainian dishes. Start with delicious Borsch, a beet soup that's a staple in every Ukrainian household, followed by Varenyky - uniquely Ukrainian dumplings that come in various sweet and savory iterations. Wash it all down with traditional Ukrainian drinks, such as kompot (non-alcoholic beverage) or horilka (alcoholic beverage).
  • Finally, end your delicious adventure by indulging in some local confectionery delights – why not try the Kyiv Cake – a popular dessert in Ukraine.

Preparation steps:

  • To prepare for this date, ensure that you know about any dietary restrictions that your partner may have. Ukrainian food can contain meat, dairy, grains, and other allergens so it's essential to be aware of this ahead of time.
  • This date idea involves tasting different types of food. Therefore, it would help if you both come with an open mind and a hearty appetite. You might want to eat lightly in the meals leading up to this foodie date to make the most of it.
  • Lastly, do a little research on Ukrainian cuisine to familiarize yourself with the dishes. This would not only make you look knowledgeable but also allow you to make the most out of your gastronomic venture.

Some tips:

  • When it comes to traditional Ukrainian food, don’t be afraid to ask for recommendations from the restaurant staff. They will be happy to assist you in making the best culinary choices.
  • Try to pace yourself while eating. Traditional Ukrainian meals are known for being hearty and filling. You don't want to fill yourself up with the first course and miss out on the rest of the delicious dishes.
  • Make sure to dress comfortably. Ukrainian meals can be elaborate affairs, and you want to be as comfortable as possible to enjoy your gastronomic journey.
