This quirky little Russian bakery is known for hard-to-find Old World specialties. Authentic piroshki and pierogi (the kind that haven’t been deep-fried into greasy torpedoes) stuffed with everything from meat, egg and onions to cabbage and potatoes, pelmeni (boiled meat dumplings), blini (sweet and savory pancakes), hamentaschen (jam-filled cookie pockets), poppy seed rolls, and honey and napoleon cakes are just the tip of the Siberian iceberg. No matter what you end up trying, make sure to add on a loaf of their fantastically moist and sour Russian rye bread. Pozhaluysta (you’re welcome).
