July 2022

Another month of exciting choices, savor our smoking or sweet summer seasonals. Both pies are handmade from scratch with only quality ingredients and stuffed full of deliciousness, they’re perfect for a hearty snack or a satisfying meal.

πŸ– Summer is here and it’s the perfect time to enjoy our delicious BBQ Pork piroshky. This pie is made with hickory-smoked pork belly tossed in a sticky BBQ sauce and wrapped in dough that is baked to perfection. This is a dish that will tantalize your taste buds and leave you wanting more without having to fire up the grill.

πŸ₯§ There’s nothing like our Berry Bedazzle piroshky to get your mouth watering and your summer started! This delicious treat is made with blackberry and strawberry braided on sweet, laminated dough, and dusted with powdered sugar. It’s the perfect way to enjoy a taste of Grandma’s pie without all the work! So go ahead and indulge yourself – you deserve it!

Very small little Russian bakery that smells absolutely incredible just walking by on the street. They have quite a selection for how small and cramped it feels inside!! I got the Cinnamon Cardamom Braid which was so wonderfully sweet and delicious. My husband went with the more savory beef and cheese which he absolutely scarfed down. Such a great snack to start our Pikes Place market adventure!
