When I first announced my travel plans to Seattle, John over at Travel Rinse Repeat offered up a gift card to Piroshky Piroshky. Not only was I grateful that someone I never met would be so kind, but I was also stoked because I had heard that this food establishment was a master in their craft.
Piroshky Piroshky, located at Pike Place Market, specializes in Russian Piroshkys, buns that are fried or baked and stuffed with a variety of fillings.
After snacking on the thinnest slices of beef tongue, I was in need of a calorie-infested indulgence.
Piroshky Piroshky is one of the smallest eateries I have seen, just a few stools inside. But, in this case, size does not matter.
Thankfully, the Potato & Cheese and Beef & Onion were a recommendation. And there was no doubt that they were fresh, because dozens were being made right in front of me. The buns were flaky and warm, the filling well seasoned and, even if I didn’t have a gift card, they were cheap at 4 bucks.
My cinnamon braid was going to go perfect with a cappuccino from the Original Starbucks which was just a few doors down.
Of course, it wouldn’t be the Pike Place Market area if there weren’t souvenirs, which I did NOT buy. I took pictures of the souvenirs instead.
Have you ever had a piroshky? What do you think of the Original Starbucks?
I still have about $10 left on my Piroshky Piroshky gift card. Any takers?
