I saw Anthony Bourdain eat at the piroshki place in Pike's market and happen to walk by this place on the way back to my hotel. I had not eaten dinner yet so I decided to try this place.
The beef and mushroom piroshki was OK, the flavor was flat. The sausage piroski tasted (and looked) like a hot dog; again kinda blah.
The good things were the desserts. Their version of a cherry streusel was different than ones I ate in the past. It was dense with cherries, sweet, tangy and crunchy and buttery. A little heavy to eat by yourself so it would be great to share with someone. The second dessert I had was the poppy seed cookie. The cookie was soft, buttery, not too sweet and the poppy seed provided a nutty flavor. It was an interesting flavor combination that I have not encountered before.
The piroshkis were OK, but the dessert was good so if you are in the neighborhood or visiting Seattle I would stop buy grab some lunch and make sure you save room for dessert.
