Marvel With A Mango: Taking A Chance On Ukrainian Sushi

Although I'm now home in America, I'm going to keep posting as if we recently had these adventures around Europe. I'll post the dates we actually visited these locations at the start of each posts in an attempt to keep things straight.

If you ever visit a major city in Ukraine you will undoubtedly see one of these restaurants...Kharkiv has several of these and Kiev has even more locations. The restaurant's name is Russian for "sushi" and the chain is one of many, many sushi restaurants that are trying to cash in on the latest culinary craze in Ukraine.  

The idea of eating sushi in Ukraine where health standards are few and far between seemed like a risk we might not want to take.  We had talked about taking the plunge many times but we only got around to it until our last week in the country.  

In the end, what were we thinking???  This was some of the most delicious sushi I've ever had.  I went with a spicy sesame roll...

...and here's a closer look.

Laura went with a simple California roll with crab inside and she really enjoyed it as well.

  1. You're so right, this is the best sushi place in town! Some of the other places.... ugh. And if you end up coming back to town, remember that you can order online from SushiYa and get it delivered : )
