Russian cuisine is hard to find in the Pacific Northwest, but thankfully there’s Piroshky Piroshky, a lovely little bakery that sells piroshkies and other baked goods. Piroshkies are little hand-held pies, stuffed with a wide assortment of fillings, and it’s the specialty. The dough is flaky and soft, done to perfection. You can get sweet piroshkies, like our favorite, the Poppy Seed Cinnamon Roll, as well as piroshkies filled with meat and vegetables.

We Love The: Chicken, Mushroom and Rice Piroshky, Poppy Seed Cinnamon Roll

The dining space at Pel’Meni Dumpling Tzar has Russian-style and local flare, and it even has local art for sale hanging on the walls. It specializes in dumplings, and by that we mean this spot has perfected them. They’re the perfect doughy, delicate consistency, and they come in beef, potato, or a combination. Enjoy them in the spacious interior or, on a warm day, chow down at their outdoor patio.
