Piroshky Piroshky – Not Recommended (for sweet pastries)

Piroshky Piroshky
1908 Pike Place
Seattle, WA 98101
Phone: (206) 441-6068

This Russian bakery across from the Pike’s Place Market is pretty famous, so we decided to wait in line (there's always a line at least 5-10 deep) to see what all the fuss is all about. We got the cinnamon, cardamom, orange peel braid (bread) and I really didn’t get it. The texture of the bread was nice and airy, but the flavor was a little m’eh to me. The flavors would have made sense, but it didn’t harmonize together or gel at all. Next time if we decide to give it one more shot, we’ll skip the sweet and go straight to the savory dishes since they looked pretty fun.

Potato piroshkis should hit the spot. But I'd prefer a NYC hotdog anyday.
It's not anything to write home about for sure.
Bourdain was a little off on this one.
