Cafe Yarmarka and a Taste of Old Russia





Hidden away in Pikes Place Market resides one of my favorite little spots to grab a quick lunch when I'm downtown in the middle of the day. Cafe Yarmarka serves up quick, fresh, natural, homemade Russian cuisine and at a great price. They have lots of options for vegetarians including borscht, salads, and cabbage rolls. I always get the vegetarian cabbage rolls with beet salad and it is absolutely exquisite every time. You can either grab a seat at the counter and watch the kitchen at work or grab your food and find a quite little nook in market. I haven't tried their Piroshkies yet. I think I would feel like I was cheating on my beloved Piroshky Piroshky. Maybe it's time to stray...
And on the subject of Russian food; The Taste of Old Russia annual bazaar is this weekend at St Nicholas Church on Capitol Hill. I have been out of town during this bazaar since I moved to Seattle so this will be my first time attending. It is free and there will be a wide array of Russian foods, vodka, and beer for a small price as well as art and a chance to check out the church. The Bazaar is happening Saturday and Sunday from 12-5.
