There is never a lack of eating places in the Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Everywhere you turn, you will come across food from every corner of the world and all of them seems so authentic.
We came across this small little dank looking shop and had a long queue of customers. The queue was so long that it spilled out to the sidewalk. Well, with a line that long, this place would certainly be something.
The name of the place is called Piroshky, Piroshky. It sounds a lot like a Russian — I wasn’t particularly sure. I had expected to see Russian looking people running the place but the person who attended to us looked very much like Chinese. But other than that, the place does look authentic Russian.
The line moved quite fast. We could see them making whatever they call it from the outside window. They do look very delicious. And the aroma too, does tell us that we simply must try it.
We got ourselves two items and decided that we should just eat it in the store. The place is really tiny and has only 4 stools against a wall counter — just enough space for us.
We had no idea what is what and so decided to get something with a piroshky name in it. The Beef and Cheese Piroshky is really tasty, especially when it is just freshly made out of the oven. This one costs $4.50.
We also had the Moscow Roll. It was so unbelievably soft, flaky and flavorful. It’s simply some of the best rolls we every tasted. I think this one is about $3.50. It’s not cheap, I say but worth every penny.
If not for the fact we were so full already and had the cheesecakes, we would have gotten a few other items to try or to bring back to the hotel. Next time we’re in Seattle, we’ll definitely come back and try their other stuff.
BTW, piroshky is perogies, is that right? Isn’t perogies something like dumplings that you boil in water? If I had not went into the store, I would have assumed that this place sells perogies. *shrugs*
